If you need proof

If you hear someone talking about female heroesas if they're new in the nerd world, strap them to a chair Ludovico-style and play this podcast for them. Plus they post the cover art on their website as a visual bonus.

A Podcast For All

Comics have never been "just for boys", but it's truer today than ever before. If you're looking for graphic novels or trade paperbacks feature strong female leads, this podcast is for you. Lis and Nathaniel review and discuss a variety of books in a lively, entertaining, intelligent show. They have books for kids, all ages, and yes, even superheroes. Just a joy to listen to.

A Fun and Fresh New Podcast

A podcast celebrating comics and graphic novels with strong female protagonists has never felt as relevant or necessary as it does today. Each episode, Lis and Nathaniel review a story plucked from the ranks of popular superhero fiction or little-known-yet-critically-acclaimed independent comics, and analyze its strengths and weaknesses as a story and representation of women in the genre. One of the hosts brings knowledge, expertize, and historical context to the reviews, while the other brings a more hollistic, immediate emotional reaction to the material. I'll let you decide which is which so as not to play into gender stereotypes.
