DC Women Kicking Ass: DC Announces Katana Series
So the rumors I had heard at NYCC were true! In February DC will be launching a series starring Katana written by Ann Nocenti.
This is only the third ongoing DC Comics title EVER to headline a woman of color so this is indeed good news.
Nocenti moves off of
Green Arrow to pick up Katana…
^ LOVE this <3
When this comes out, DC is going to have four ongoing series starring female main characters, one of whom is openly LGBTQ and one who is a POC character
While there’s still a long way to go in terms of diversity in the DCU, stuff like this is a pretty encouraging step forward :)
Well, these are definitely good news and I’m definitely following these series!! ♥
It’s a shame that we won’t have Katana in Birds of Prey any more…but having her in two ongoing series, one of which is her own solo title, is
really good :)
IS it only four? Batgirl, Batwoman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Katana, Catwoman…not counting Birds of Prey, it’s six, isn’t it? If we count Bop and World’s Finest, we’re doing a little better…
