Friday Favorite: Starling

There was tons of skepticism about DC's new books, and Birds of Prey was no exception. How could you take a perfect formula, Gail's Dinah, Babs, and Zinda, and just change it? Well, even loaded with all the skepticism this fangirl could muster, I like the new Birds of Prey. I like it because of... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Wonder Woman

When we started doing Friday Favorites here at G3, the concept was more about featuring B-list characters that we loved. We wanted to shine a light where it isn't always shining. But this Friday, I want to honor the leading lady of comics because she deserves it. More specifically, I'd like to honor Brian Azzarello... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Spy Smasher

Combine every relentless hardass you've ever known, add a dose of supreme confidence and combat training, provide scary federal credentials, and put it all in one intimidating package topped off with a severe ponytail. The result? Katrina Armstrong, aka Spy Smasher.As written by Gail Simone in the Birds of Prey “Blood and Circuits” arc, Ms.... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Jeannette

Our darling Gail has a knack for creating new characters. Misfit, Black Alice, Ragdoll, Scandal! All of them awesome in their own right. But no one quite takes the cake like Jeannette. She was a bit of a mystery when she first joined the Six. We knew she had money, we knew she was friends... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Damian

No, I'm not kidding. It's no secret that I'm a Robin(s) fan, but perhaps even more than Jason Todd, Damian Wayne is controversial among the Bat-faithful. There's no middle ground with him, and the readers who loathe him really loathe him. I understand that because, let's be honest; Damian is — to borrow a word... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Cheryl Blossom

Veronica Lodge has the sassy, rich vixen role on lock most of the time, but whenever bombshell Cheryl Blossom sashays into Riverdale, it is Game Over. Even worse for Miss Lodge’s considerable ego, Cheryl knows she is hot with her red hair, dangerous curves, and short skirts — and she flaunts her assets with no... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Ravager

She’s inappropriate, bitchy, and a little too fond of problem-solving through violence, but I ♥ Ravager. Every superhero team needs a rabble-rouser, and Ms. Rose Wilson fills that role for the Teen Titans with verve. As the offpsring of Slade Wilson (Deathstroke), she has enough dysfunction for several lifetimes. She’s also grown to become a... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Agent 355

There are plenty of reasons to be evangelical about Brian K. Vaughan's Y: The Last Man — a haunting storyline in which almost every male on Earth drops dead, pages of nail-biting drama, sharp humor ... and a monkey. It's like a groundbreaking HBO show in print, with great illustrations (Pia Guerra). But of all... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Alice

Some of the best characters are villains, and one of my favorite villains is Alice. That is, Kate Kane's thought-to-be-dead twin sister Elizabeth, who was actually kidnapped in childhood and tortured by terrorists, eventually becoming the Religion of Crime's High Madame. Her alternate personality is a beautifully twisted version of Alice Pleasance Liddell of Wonderland... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Tim Drake Wayne

Despite the fact that they all run around in silly costumes, some caped characters get more respect than others. If you say you’re a Batman fan, even his harshest geek critics won’t make fun of you, at least to your face. But saying that Robin is one of your favorites leads to snickering and the... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Ragdoll

It is no secret that the ladies of G3 love Secret Six. A key ingredient to the Six's magic is the loopy and lovable Ragdoll. While charming as ever, make no mistake; he has no scruples making him particularly dangerous in a fight. His lunatic perception of reality fuel his absurd one-liners, and make for festive (and hilarious)... Continue Reading →
