5 Rules to a Successful New Project Jul09

5 Rules to a Success...

You know how I keep going on about new projects? New blog topics, new novels I’m going to write, new fitness regimes that are going to make me look like Cameron Diaz… I even toyed with the idea of writing my own cookbook for a while.

LAST WEEK’S COMICS TODAY VOL 9 Jul02

LAST WEEK’S CO...

Welcome back everyone to another installment of LAST WEEK’S COMICS TODAY! Yes, I’ve changed the name of this column – it’s still Amazing, still Uncanny, and still filled with rousing and awe inspiring tales of comicbookery, but since we’ve been gone so long, I thought it would be nice...

Add A SuperWoman to the Roster: THE MASKED SONGBIRD is Here! Jul01

Add A SuperWoman to ...

  It’s officially here! Instead of writing about myself in the third person, I’ll just say that this day has been a long time in the making, and I’m ever so thankful to share it with you. The blurb… Mildly hapless Edinburgh accountant Gwenllian Maule is surviving....

SuperGirls: Science ...

Leia is back, Lego has female scientists – by making our voices heard we can open up the world for our girls.

THE AMAZINGLY UNCANNY SFSW COMICS COLUMN VOL. 8 Jun24

THE AMAZINGLY UNCANN...

DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK! No, really don’t. Please. It’s been some time, my friends, hasn’t it? Long story short – I lost about a month of edits to my novel OF FATES CONVERGED (shameless plug!) and need to take a little hiatus from these columns to basically redo it. After that I was kinda on...

Penny Dreadful Revie...

  Doing a limited series can be tough and if not done right, if not focus and tightly written, it can feel empty and at odds with its condensed format. Not merely leaving us wanting more, as is so often the goal, but scratching our heads wondering what the point was to begin with. This...

How I Found My Femin...

When hearing about the horror that was the Santa Barbara shootings, and the outpouring of grief, fear, fury and, sadly, the disgusting diatribe, that it prompted, I chose to share a little bit of my own story on Facebook, in the hope it would make sense of some of the media storm that surrounded the shootings. Although I could never comment on or even fully understand the horrors that happened, I felt I could be honest about how they made me feel. This prompted further stories from others and even argument, but it began to make me realise that I could be more honest about my stance and my experiences.

Penny Dreadful Revie...

  Being obvious is easy and at time the best we can hope for on crowded and over saturated TV. It is often easier to capture a viewer in a moment if it is in ones face and familiar then is it to do something more subtle. This is unfortunately, what happened last week when the episode was...

SuperSpeak: An Inter...

We are overjoyed to welcome NYT bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton to Searching for SuperWomen today! She is the author of the hugely successful Merry Gentry series as well as the long-running Anita Blake series, and she is widely recognized as being one of the founders of present urban...

Nelvana of Kugluktuk: Canada’s SuperWoman May30

Nelvana of Kugluktuk...

Editor’s Note: Today we get to share a very special article with you all about Nelvana, Canada’s first SuperWoman. We are incredibly excited and thankful to Hope Nicholson for sharing her work with us, and we hope you’ll enjoy learning about this very special superhero!...

SuperGirls: Beyond D...

In a world where girls need super role models, where has Leia gone?

Penny Dreadful Revie...

  To say the pilot was a little rough maybe an understatement to say this follow-up episode is far better gives me hope for the rest of the series. While the show does continue with it’s somewhat flat and a touch overly modern take on a Victorian horror there were some rather good bright...

Game of Thrones: Sea...

Well we’re just over halfway through one of the most intoxicating series on TV. Game of Thrones season 4 has thrown everything it has at us, and still manages to surprise. For the hardcore fans of the books, you’ll be forgiven for being a little thrown by this season; for a franchise that has been pretty true to the original so far, we’ve taken a bit of a diversion in the last couple of episodes that no one saw coming.

Penny Dreaful Review...

  Have you ever wondered what the Amoral B-team of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would look like? Well if you haven’t but now think that sounds like an amazing idea then this might be the show to watch. Penny Dreadful pulls its name from the 19th century British publications that...

Invisible Man and Wo...

It’s with great pleasure I bring you this thought-provoking guest post from Katie Collins, submitted for our Year of SuperWomen anniversary month.  *** It seemed too good to be true. The cover was glossy and inviting, sitting temptingly on the shelf next to all the serious history...

Happy Anniversary to Us! May07

Happy Anniversary to...

A year ago, we got together and launched this site. Since then, we’ve started a YouTube channel. A book club. Online RPGs and lots of Winchester talk. We’ve seen the creation of the Veronica Mars movie and several new shows come on the scene. We’ve gone from 1,000 views in a...

Salem Review: The Vo...

  One of the things that intrigued me, amongst the wave of early American televisions series that are popping up, is that Salem looked to divert from the norm. It was, as I rightly assumed, was to be more of an interpretation of events then just a bland retelling of the known story....

Game of Thrones: Sea...

Here’s the thing about Game of Thrones. It’s totally and ridiculously addictive. Whether you start watching the programme or reading the books, at some point you will find yourself switching between the two, arguing about the Targaryan conspiracy theory and muttering valar morghulis under your breath at anyone that annoys you.

Asking for It: Consent and SuperWomen Apr02

Asking for It: Conse...

Consent. We don’t always get sexy around here, but today I think we will. This post will contain some mature subject matter. Yesterday I discovered this link, which may be a little triggery (don’t read the comments) and is NSFW, but the message is a good one: that if someone...

Basically, I’m...

  It’s finally here. Veronica is back. And really back — I mean, the film earned $2 million in its opening weekend, only showing on 291 screens. That’s impressive. I’m going to backtrack just a bit. On Saturday, I spent a decent amount of time rewatching the end...

“You’ll never survive the zombie apocalypse,” I sighed at my mother the other day. “That’s okay – if it happens I’ll just ring you!” And, a moment later, “I’m curious… how would I know the zombie apocalypse is happening?” … Hopeless.
