The list author says: "*This list is a work in progress* I made this list for others to experience an amazing female writer, artist or character. I often struggle finding titles that have strong female characters (mainly because many are written by men) or have been created by women. Sure, there are many women in comics these days, but I want to enjoy amazing women writing, drawing, and appearing in comics. In addition, I prefer to read about women who are redeemed by knowledge, not love. Harley Quinn is my favorite all time character, but she is in no way a worthy of being on this list. She is a lovefool and a twit. None of these selections are child-friendly. This makes me upset because strong positive female role models in young girls lives are essential!"
"Gail Simone is one of the greatest female writers around. She exposed comic book professionals for the indignities that occurred to their female characters (brutal deaths, idiocy, abuse, tormented relationships). In Secret Six (a continuing title), she introduces Scandal Savage, the most well-done female who identifies as lesbian in DCU."
