"The women of Bikini Kill let guitarist Billy Karren be in their feminist punk band, but only if he's willing to just "do some shit." Being a feminist dude is like that. We may ask you to "do some shit" for the band, but you don't get to be Kathleen Hannah."--@heatherurehere

Thank God for Power Up

Continuing my #BuyComicsByWomen experiment, where I only buy comics that have a female writer or artist working on them.

Yep Pile

  • Power Up #1 (Writer: Kate Leth   Art: Matt Cummings   Cover: Lucy Knisley)  Been looking forward to this one for a while now. Lucy Knisley alt cover is just a bonus. 
  • Sensation Comics Ft. Wonder Woman #12 (Writer: Derek Fridolfs   Art: Tom Fowler   Cover: Emanuela Lupacchino) I'm definitely late to the game on this one--may have to pick up some back issues!
  • Swords Of Sorrow Sonja Jungle #1 (Writer: Marguerite Bennett   Art: Mirka Andolfo   Cover: Jay Anacleto ) This crossover is the first time I've bought comics regularly from Dynamite. Well done, all y'all!
  • VERTIGO QUARTERLY: CMYK Sure. I'll keep picking this up. Always something worth the cover price.
  • Star Trek Ongoing #47 (Writer: Mike Johnson   Art: Rachael Stott   Cover: Joe Corroney ) I continue to enjoy this comic--not sure why it doesn't get more press, as it's consistently better than the nu-Trek movies were anyway...
  • Star-lord And Kitty Pryde #1(Writer: Sam Humphries   Art: Alti Firmansyah   Cover: Yasmine Putri ) I'm a fan of Humphries ever since Avengers A.I., and I suspect this won't suck. New to Firmansyah and Putri, but the previews look fantastic!

Nope Pile

  • God Is Dead #39(Writer: Mike Costa   Art: Nahuel Lopez   Cover: Jose Luis)  What can I say, I like watching gods beat the crap out of each other. I'll have to wait until this year is up though...because it looks like there will never be women working on this.
  • Disciples #2 (Writer: Steve Niles   Art: Christopher Mitten   Cover: Christopher Mitten) I dug Niles' Criminal Macabre a lot, and Mitten's art is gorgeous; definitely missing out here.
  • Fight Club 2 #3 (Writer: Chuck Palahniuk   Art: Cameron Stewart   Cover: David Mack) I'm not the hugest Palahniuk fan, but everybody involved in this is top shelf talent, and stories about masculinity and identity are a favorite of mine, so I'm bummed about this one for sure.
  • Mind Mgmt #35(Writer: Matt Kindt   Art: Matt Kindt   Cover: Matt Kindt) Who am I kidding? I'll be buying the TPB when my year-long experiment is over, but FOMO is in full force here.  
  • Wolf #1(Writer: Ales Kot   Art: Matt Taylor   Cover: Matt Taylor) This is the book I'm feeling the most heartache about. It sounds like it's right up my alley.
