Brian Stelfreeze Draws the Most Kick Ass Women
I’m a huge fan of artist Brian Stelfreeze and one of my most treasured commissions is the one he did for me last year of Barbara Gordon as Oracle.
Stelfreeze is currently working on Day Men, a vampire/crime mash-up, for Boom! and the third issue of that is out tomorrow.
Stelfreeze as noted has done work for DC Comics in the past including covers for Shadow of the Bat and the Wednesday Comics Catwoman series.
Recently he has been doing what are described as “warm-up pieces” and posting them on his Twitter and Facebook. Here’s a look a the pieces he did for Black History month including some familiar DC women.

constellation-funk asked: I'm not super familiar with Vixen but I really liked Brad Meltzer's take on her in his JLA run (even though it seems like no one else in the world liked his run on that comic ha). What are some other good stories she's been central in?
You should definitely read Dwayne McDuffie’s Justice League of America run, which showcased her prominently, particularly Worlds Collide (which integrated the Milestone characters in the DCU) and The Second Coming, which a new spin on her powers (pun intended).
Oh, and after you read The Second Coming, check out new Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson’s Vixen: Return of the Lion. First solo miniseries that strengthens the heroine’s origins and mythos.
