Very Good Representation of DC Cover Art Dec 15 2007
By CB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I want to say off the bat that, if you are a comic book fan, you can't go wrong with this volume. DC Comics Covergirls serves as an excellent gallery book of - what else? - DC Comics covers of superheroine comic books. This book is, however, less a retrospective than a gallery of more modern works - you'll largely find covers reproduced from the last 25 years or so. The book is largely broken down by heroine - so you'll find Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Catwoman, etc., each with their own little section in the book (some sections, regrettably, are larger than others). Lovers of Adam Hughes' work on Wonder Woman and on Catwoman would be wise to pick this book up, as his work is exceptionally well-represented in this volume. Overall, I'm pleased with this book - it is high-quality, the images are reproduced nicely on thick, glossy paper. You'd do well to buy this if you are a fan of comic books or interested in illustration.

an excellent guide to the superheroines of DC Comics July 17 2007
By bOoKwOrM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Recently bought this, and it was definitely worth the money spent! Written by Louise Simonson(an accomplished comic book writer, for both Marvel and DC Comics), this is an illustrated guide to the female superheroines of past and present. Besides the well-known ones like Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Supergirl, other lesser known characters are also spotlighted. Contains a number of full page reproductions of comic book covers(which look really amazing on the high quality paper of the book), and various other pictures.

Definitely recommended for superheroine fans. :)

Not an art showcase by far Aug. 24 2007
By Edco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It should have been titled "Bad Scans of DC Comics Cover Girls." The paper stock is nice and heavy, but the reproductions are horrible. There is such wonderful art to showcase here, but the majority are covered in bad moret patterns or just poor color reproductions. As the book moves towards current book covers and art, I was horrified to see the same bad reproductions, considering the source material could have been aquired in its original digital format! Also disappointing are direct cover scans-- including quite recent Adam Hughes and Jim Lee-- with all the cover logo, type, DC Bullet, and freaking UPC code in place. Such a shame.
