Danger Gal Starts Somethin’

Tales from the Inner Sanctum contributor Michael May is starting a new feature on his blog and it’s partially my fault :

One of the things I want to do here in terms of content – or whatever we’re calling it—is to explore more of the female heroes in comics and other kinds of storytelling. Lisa Paitz Spindler has a really cool feature on her blog called Danger Gal Friday, and—with apologies to her – I want to do something similar here. I’m not going to commit to a weekly feature, but I’d like to profile some of the great heroines.

This makes all the hard work worth it, since one of my reasons for starting up this blog was to celebrate strong heroines. May obviously gets that. We crossed paths a while back when I profiled Wonder Woman. The thematic parallels between Romance, especially Paranormal Romance, and Comics continues to intrigue me.
