"Women of Action is a great way to learn about the progressive, inclusive storylines that have been quietly told for a very long time. There is a huge backlist of titles to catch up on. It's quite an inspiration to discover such an amazing back-catalog of characters and stories."
"Shining a light on characters both good and bad, this is a great book that shows that these strong women don't always need powers to be super."
-Batman News.com
4.5 out of 5 stars
"Showcases a slew of DC's best-known female characters while also putting a spotlight on the behind-the-scenes women who have developed DC's cast of characters over the past 75-plus years of comic book publishing."
8 out of 10 stars "Every opinion within the pages of the book is by female creators, every piece of art drawn by female artists, and that gives the book a unique angle. [...] It's classy and crisp - an ideal introduction to the women of the DC universe."
-Starburst Magazine
9 out of 10 stars "It is lovely to look at, but it's also got some serious history in here, things I didn't know, presented in easy to read formats that make it seem less like a reference work and more like reading some blog posts by a very knowledgeable author."
-Cultured Vultures
"The pages on Supergirl and Lois Lane are really well written, and all profiles contain illustrations that have been created specifically for this book."
-Superman Homepage
"DC: Women of Action is truly a celebration of women - the ones who inspire us on the page, the ones who are responsible for bringing those characters to life, and those who helped bring both together."
Holiday gift pik "Writer Shea Fontana takes readers through a who's who of some of DC Comics' most important (and well known) female comic characters! Great for die-hard fans and those who want to learn!"
