My preschool-age daughter adores Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th grade. As I’ve been hunting for more age-appropriate titles with female superheroes for her, I’ve been disappointed with how little I’m finding.

What I have found is four pitched stories that my daughter would have loved, that have not been realized. We’re ready for Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade! Lois Lane, Girl Reporter! Wonder Woman: The Last Amazon! Barbara Gordon, Junior Detective! She’s already noted that the Super Friends comics have way more Batman and nowhere near enough Wonder Woman for her tastes.

Thanks to Comic-Con’s Batgirl and her pointed question we’re all hearing about women at DC. How about the girls? Or are you letting the next generation of comic-book-reading girls go read Marvel Her-oes instead?

(in retrospect, that last bit of snark was probably uncalled-for.)
