Marion loves super heroes

She has even asked for a science kit to help develop super powers. 

This is my five-year-old daughter, Fiona, dressed as her favorite superhero, Wonder Woman! She got really into her after watching Justice League on Netflix, and subsequently got her momma into DC comics. (A feat I never thought would happen, being an X-Men girl myself!) Words cannot describe how stupid excited I am that my daughter is a comic lover like me!

This is Elie! She’s a hardcore Batgirl fan, and I’m super proud of her. She is the daughter of a good friend of mine.

Girls Love Superheroes Contest is On! Submit and Win

The Girls Love Superheroes blog just had its 3rd anniversary and to celebrate I’m giving away some great prizes to help spread the word.

From now until May 11 submit a photo of your child or a child you had permission to photograph and you will be eligible to take home some great prizes. Remember this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day and many shops have costume contests so its an opportunity to see lots of girls showing their superhero love. But they don’t have to be just in costume. They can be playing with Superhero toys (any of those toys for Spider-Man for example) or reading comics. Two photos per person, please.

And what are the prizes? If I get 10 pictures, the prize package will be a Wonder Woman Little People car, a Bagirl Letgo Keychain and a Wonder Woman beach ball.

I’ll add a little something for every 10 pictures - could be an autographed comic - could be something else.

But if we break 50 pictures? How about a chance to win a copy of the super rare and super expensive first trade of Batgirl starring Stephanie Brown autographed by Bryan Q. Miller?

How cool is that?

AND this other stuff as well!

So again the rules are:

  • Submit up to two pictures of a girl (around 13 and under)
  • Have permission to submit
  • Use the submit button or the email contact
  • Submit by May 11
  • Get a chance to win!

Please help spread the word!

This is a picture of the daughter of one of my best friends reading Molly Danger by Jamal Igle. I got her a signed copy at NYCC and apparently she DEVOURED it. Not 2 days later I got an email from my friend asking for more recommendations for all-ages comics because her daughter loved Molly Danger so much. :)

I am a big nerd and I do my best to introduce my daughter, Madeline, to various fandoms that will interest her and get her imagination running . On this day my girlfriend and I purchased the batman dress (this was in november), and too this day she wears it every chance she gets. She loves going to the comic book store with me and getting a couple books. At night she asks me to read her one of her comics until she gets tired and goes to sleep. Last year I took her to san diego comic con where she dressed up as robin, this year she is excited to dress up as stephanie brown batgirl/robin.

My daughter, Catherine meeting Thor at Disneyland and she just had to have a Thor costume for the occasion. Luckily I can sew or I would never be able to keep up with her costume requests.
