Beautiful Women with Super Powers

[ Edited ]

Hey, just stumbled across what looks like a great "bargain" book on the B&N website... It's a coffee table picture book entitled DC Comics Covergirls and it takes a comprehensive look at all of the female heroines and villains in the DC Comic universe – Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Lois Lane, Batgirl, etc. It's selling for $14.98 and it looks like it was released a few years back for $39.95...

 

Has anyone actually thumbed through this book? How cool is it? Just curious before I actually buy it...

 

Paul

Awesome! I hadn't heard of this at all. Seems to be an amazing price for something a collector is sure to appreciate.

Just why is only Wonder woman on the cover?

I'm wondering if they are conveying that inside we will see a progression of the art over time. That would be something to see.

Yeah, P, that's why I started this thread – I was hoping someone already had this book and would share his or her impressions. I am cautious about ordering a book like this without perusing it first.

Re: Beautiful Women with Super Powers

Hmmm, out of stock at my fav B&Ns. Gonna be hard to drop in and take a look at the far locations. Sounds so promising...in a better economy we might all have taken the gamble for something like this at this price because it seems like its worth the gamble. I'll let you know if I get a chance to drive out and skim it.

Re: Beautiful Women with Super Powers

I know these aren't DC character but I have always preferred Marvel, and I know this thread is about a book but I wanted to post pics of some of my favorite female super heroes.

 

Mockingbird     Scarlet Witch     Medusa     Polaris     Tigra     Storm     Diamondback

Re: Beautiful Women with Super Powers

Man, no chance to drive out to far locations today. I am a hair's breath (what am I talking about, and is it hair or hare?) away from taking the risk and just ordering unseen. If I don't love the book, someone in my immediate circle will. I'll write back if I do get it.

 

Ryan, you are awesome. I think this was a good place to start your suggestion that we discuss Marvel sometime. Could lead to a new thread.
