DC Comics CovergirlsLouise Simonson, Adam Hughes
From the trailblazing Wonder Woman of the 1940’s to edgy, girl-power-driven comics series like Birds of Prey, DC Comics Covergirls takes a look at the female characters of DC Comics throughout the company’s history, and features many of DC’s iconic covers. The book examines the evolution of the women of DC Comics: the 1942 introduction of DC Comics’ famous heroine, Wonder Woman, and her various incarnations up to the present day; the creation of comic book spin-offs based on characters such as Lois Lane; and the recent wealth of fierce female-driven titles such as Supergirl, Birds of Prey, Catwoman, and Batgirl, featuring women who have no trouble being both beautiful and strong-willed. Famous featured artists include Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Adam Hughes, J Scott Campbell, Michael Turner, Darwyn Cooke, Jill Thompson, and many more.
DC Comics Covergirls is a fun, smart, in-depth look at the greatest super heroines of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
