Steampunk and Batgirl equals a win … and a spectacular inspiration for cosplay.
An oldie but a goodie. Phil Noto’s Batgirl is just delightful.
When Gail talks, we listen. Especially when she’s talking comics. Here’s a rundown of the best bits of the Spotlight on Gail Simone panel at MegaCon 2013.
The powers-that-be at MegaCon 2013 exercised vast wisdom and general awesomeness by having a panel dedicated to Gail Simone. For an hour, fans got to ask questions and listen to this excellent writer talk about her craft. V. was there taking notes for those of you who couldn’t be. Here are some of the takeaways.

This collection of romance-themed stories didn’t make E. want to break out the candles and flowers.
Superheroes and anti-heroes lead complicated, over-the-top dramatic lives that inevitably wreak havoc on their relationships. No matter what that passionate lip-lock between Wonder Woman and Superman on the cover of Young Romance: The New 52 Valentine’s Day Special suggests — and enough already; we get it — the stories in this collection are not heavy on heart-fluttering moments and sexytime.

No matter how you felt about Oracle and Stephanie Brown’s absence from DC’s 52, Barbara Gordon’s return as Batgirl was an undeniable success. A success for diversity.
Because Barbara being shot by the Joker in The Killing Joke remained in continuity, Barbara Gordon was healing from a traumatic injury. In returning her to the streets of Gotham, Gail gave us a clear picture of PTSD. We saw a female recover from one of the most violent assaults in DC history, and regain her power while showing vulnerability as a strength … a mechanism for the signature compassion of Barbara Gordon.
Gail Simone wrote her that way, and I doubt few (if any) other writers would have done the character such justice while showing grace under the pressure of launching a single-character title. Continue reading “On Gail Simone’s Removal from Batgirl”
I have intentionally been quiet about the new DC books these past couple of weeks. Mostly because every site and its mom is reviewing them, E. has covered a few, too. What more could I possibly say that hasn’t been said? Well, I’ve always got something to say. I’m not picking up all of the titles, but of the #1 DC books I have gotten, I have loved, liked, and loathed. Continue reading “G3 Review: DCnU Score Card”
Wondy as Jett & Canary as Currie are PERFECTION!
Here at G3, we are huge fans of Cliff Chiang. His work is clean, classic, and beautiful. The way he draws some of our favorite ladies never ceases to endear. I’ve already tweeted and shared to the high heavens his latest piece set to be auctioned at Heroes Con. But I am so damned in love with it, that it warranted real estate on our site, too. Not only does it have my favorite DC women, but it has my rock-star idol, Joan Jett.
The phenomenally talented John “Roc” Upchurch took time out of his busy, working artist’s schedule for an interview with Girls Gone Geek.
If you follow this blog, chances are that you read a ton of comics and can name your favorite writers and artists. E. and I talk about ours all the time, and many of our preferred illustrators are well known and probably working for the big two. But there are so many undiscovered artists out there who are just as good, if not better than your mainstream people. One in particular goes by the name Roc, and he is the shit.
John “Roc’ Upchurch hails from “a little gutter” in Philadelphia called Hunting Park. Named after his father, who inspired him to become an artist, Roc began his career as a video game concept artist in Georgia. He graduated to freelance work in almost every industry, and he’s now an illustrator of whatever you can imagine. His tools of the trade are pencil, paper and Photoshop. He can do concept art, comics, storyboards and pretty much any commission assignment you throw his way. When our friends saw the fabulous Vanessa G. and E. Peterman avatars Roc created for Girls Gone Geek, they pretty much lost their minds. We certainly did. Continue reading “Keeping it Ill with Artist John ‘Roc’ Upchurch”
