Hi it’s Michelle! I am 26 years old and I have been a huge comic book fan since I read Garth Ennis’s Preacher as a teenager. Over the years, I have read many collections and issues ranging from mainstream superhero stories like The Flash and Batman to indie books like Hack/Slash, The Walking Dead, and Transmetropolitan. I’m a television and movie fan and have also been to a couple of comic book and video game conventions.
After the debacle with the woman who wore the Stephanie Brown Batgirl costume at the Comic Con last year, asking the question of “where are the women?” in response to the JLA comic book cover for the new 52, I created the blog http://www.tumblr.com/blog/femaleprotagonists in order to help educate and celebrate female pop culture figures. I also wanted to let readers know, who are sullen and discontented with female superheroes and how they are being written, that there are other female protagonists in comics.
I am very excited to be able to be a part of the ANTiFanboy page and to be able to blog about weekly comic books as well as series that I have read in the past. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
Just to give an idea of the comics that I do read from week to week:
The Walking Dead
House of Mystery
And I am totally open to suggestions for trying new books.
