Chantaal | @strongpieces

My name’s Chantaal, and I’m a girl (woman, really) who reads comics. Surprise!

I’m 26 and live in southern California. I’ve made mine Marvel for years, but am finally beginning to branch out. My top five heroes are Siryn, Ms Marvel, Wonder Woman, Wiccan and Batgirl (Steph). My favorite artists are Mike Choi, Amanda Conner, Colleen Coover, Emanuela Lupacchino, Dennis Calero, Mark Brooks and Adi Granov, colorists are Christina Strain and Sonia Oback, and writers are Peter David, Allan Heinberg, Jimmy Palmiotti, Brian K. Vaughan, Marjorie Liu, Gail Simone and Bryan Miller. My favorite titles at the moment are X-Factor, X-Men Legacy, Secret Avengers, Young Avengers, The Walking Dead, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Secret Six, Batgirl and I Zombie.

I’m on Tumblr and Last.fm as well, if you feel so inclined.

Dee | @pseudicide

Hey there.  I’m Dee, and like Chantaal, I’m also a girl (well, woman) who reads comics. I’m 34 and a Canadian in the lovely land that is Oz, Sydney to be specific.

I’ve been reading comics most of my life, since I was about 8 years old and my brother handed me his Kitty Pryde/Wolverine limited series to shut me the hell up.  Since then I’ve read most things I could get my hands on.  I wanted to grow up to be Shadowcat or Mockingbird.  I used to be a wholly Marvel girl, but over the years independent and smaller press books have made it onto my pull list, and a few years ago I crossed sides and started reading DC.

I like a lot of things, but if it’s written by Simone, Palmiotti, Gray, Ellis, Ennis, Vaughan or Rucka I will give it a chance.  If it’s drawn by Amanda Conner, Nicola Scott, Darwyn Cooke, or JH Williams, same.  I like genre books more than I like superhero books these days, but there are still some great hero books coming out.

I run F*&k Yeah Catman over at Tumblr.  I also have twitter which I’m addicted to.

Emma | @emmahouxbois

If you’re scratching your head wondering where you’ve seen the name Emma Houxbois before, it’s probably because that (misused) quote from David Hine about the creation of Nightrunner making the rounds originated at my blog. Aside from that I’m a 26 year old trans woman living in Vancouver, Canada. I do a lot of geekery, but my major is Gotham with a concentration in the Bat-females. True to form the first thing you can expect from me here is a series examining just who the modern Bat-females (Barbara Gordon, Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, and Katherine Kane) are not just as heroes, but as women.

Angel | @genjadeshade

I’m Angel and I’m a 27 year old everything-nerd living in the southern United States, though I love Southern California enough that I visit it at least bi-annually. I’m a contributor to both Insert Pop Culture Reference and Cineboobs. I didn’t start reading comics until I was in high school, so I’m likely a bit behind the other ladies here, but my main love is Marvel, and I tend to keep up with X-Force, X-Factor and pretty much any title X-23 is in, these days. I’d gladly follow Peter David onto the surface of the sun, and I want to wallpaper my walls with Mike Choi art.

Lina | @lookslikelove

Salut! I’m Lina and at 24, I’m the baby of this group. A pop culture addict with a willingness to try everything at least once, I find enjoyment in both the high- and lowbrow things (from soap operas to actual operas, I’m there). Presently residing in Chicago, I have a strange addiction to go pretty much anywhere (road trips are my favourite).

A Marvel fan since I was about seven (the X-Men comics were used to ply me away from the cheesy Marvel cartoons and Doctor Who reruns of my youth), I am returning to a love of DC as well. With a preference for Mockingbird and the Black Cat (and I love Wanda and Squirrel Girl) from Marvel and a deep affection for Supergirl in DC, I love girls who sometimes do bad things. I have recently started to develop a deep affection for a few IDW Publishing titles and I love to read an independent comic whenever I can get my hands on them.

I contribute to Pop Culture Reference and have my own blog [Nerdette Alert!] which has content when I remember to post there. I also can be found on Tumblr and Twitter if you are so inclined.

    Hi, my character Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman has just made her color debut–alongside Karl Altstaetter & Robert Napton’s Deity (which also has a strong female lead) and A. David Lewis, Michael Angelo Lee & Chuck Bordell’s Gangland Avalon–in Visionary Comics’ Digital Visions #4, and I wondered if you’d be up for reviewing it at Girls Read Comics?

    Here’s a short blurb on what Cabra’s about:

    No longer willing to let her boyfriend/pimp treat her like dirt, Cabra Cini got lethal payback with the help of voodoo magik–and liked it. Voodoo became her new addiction and Cabra has cleaned up her act and forged a deadly new vocation… Cabra’s color debut in Visionary Comics’ Digital Visions #4 available to download free via http://www.samjohnson-comics.blogspot.com/

    Look forward to hearing from you,

  4. Hey–where would I send you guys review copies?!
