Another nice review

I awoke this morning to an email from my editor at Simon and Schuster pointing me to a very nice, very perceptive review on girl-wonder.org. Girl-Wonder is a site that I follow which looks at comics through a -- not a feminist lens necessarily, but certainly through a female-positive one. The tag line on the site is, "Because capes aren't just for boys." Given the characters I write, I'd hoped Girl-Wonder would notice my little comic and think well of it. Mission accomplished!

The review is written by Karen Healey who clues into one of the major themes I want to explore with 100 Girls. She may be the first person, is certainly the first reviewer, to do so. Read the review to see what I'm talking about.

We don't shy away from the F-word: we totally look at comics through a feminist lens. Thanks for noticing us, and congratulations on your book!

Glad to know that you don't shy away from calling yourselves feminists. I generally tend to shy away from applying labels on folks unless I know for sure it's a term they use themselves.

And I have to admit that I noticed your site because the wondrous Katie Moody introduced me to it. Since then, however, I do keep up with your site's doings.

Keep up the good work.
