Customer Reviews

Strong Female Characters!

We are both fans of strong female characters. Not surprising since our favorite comic is Trekker, about a strong and independent female bounty hunter. Needless to say, we were very excited about this podcast dedicated to the many strong female characters in comics. Each episode covers a different graphic novel or trade paperback with a lead female character. Hosts Lis and Nathaniel do a fantastic job of discussing the strory, art, and characters from differing points of view. A great show that is defintely worth listening to!

Girls Hit Hard

A wonderful podcast full of open and honest opinions on comics that focus on female leads. The hosts both admit their strengths and weaknesses and these aspects balance and compliment each other nicely. If you're looking for a podcast that examines the good and the not-so-good surrounding females in comics then this is the show you've been waiting for. Show them some love and download today.

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.
