She's had her shots and she's ready to start kicking ass again. Along with the daily lives of the creators, Badass Girl is waking up and leaving the house. In the past year, we've seen one con after another cancelled or postponed, and had to hold up writing and illustration to spend that time homeschooling.
But now... Everything is getting back to normal.
As of today, the creative and marketing teams are getting ready to rejoin the Badass Girl Army. We're applying for upcoming cons, and are meeting to get the art going for Issue 4, as well as the writing for the next story series.
Thanks for your patience, Badass Girl Army! We're looking forward to seeing you soon and bringing new Badasss Girl stuff to the world!
It's hot in Badass Girl World! Mid-summer - time to sweat while kicking ass. We hope the entire Badass Girl Army is having a great summer, staying healthy, and enjoying (most of) the things we love about this time of year. Here are some Badass Girl tips for kicking ass (while staying healthy) and having a great summer:
Badass Girl's guide to a COVID-free summer:
Have a great one and stay in touch, Badass Girl Army!
These are crazy times! Badass Girl and the whole team here at Blade Ridge Entertainment want everyone to be safe and healthy.
HARD COPY ACCESS
Our goal over the past year or so has been to get to as many cities and conventions as possible, to bring Badass Girl directly to readers and get you engaged in her adventures. Given large events and travel is going to be restricted for some time, we still want to be able to get the new content into your hands. We haven't done hard copy sales online in the past, but we feel is it important for us to create a means for you to obtain them given the current situation. Continue to watch this space for announcements and/or follow us on FB, Instagram or Twitter. And, as always, spread the word!
Please be safe and with each others' help, we can kick COVID's ass!
You did it, Badass Girl Army! You helped us bring Badass Girl Saves the World Issue 3 to life with your support and pledges. We're so proud to know that there's a growing army of readers who want to see more of Badass Girl's adventures and want to pitch in - with $$ and outreach - to make it happen.
Raising money is easy, right? You just put up a Kickstarter page and watch the money roll in. Not so much. Our team worked for over two months putting together the Kickstarter page, creating videos and content, selecting rewards, and reaching out to you to let you know how you could contribute. And it's a success!

Next up: As Issue 3 is under construction, we're taking Badass Girl to some comic cons to find more recruits for the Badass Girl Army. Hope to see you soon!
What happens between blog posts? All kinds of stuff!
After March's Big Apple Comic Con in NYC, we brought Badass Girl to Phoenix over Memorial Day weekend and met crowds of comic book enthusiasts and recruited an Arizona regiment to the Badass Girl Army.
And we've been working hard to polish Issue 2 and get it printed.
Next up, we'll be releasing Issue 2 at Silicon Valley Comic Con in San Jose, CA.
So, Badass Girl is not OFFICIALLY COAST TO COAST.
We're also planning a Kickstarter, so stay tuned!
Stay fierce, Badass Girl Army!
If you want to introduce the toughest people in the world to the new toughest chick in the comics realm, Manhattan is the place to go.
In New York City, I had to laugh at myself because I sometimes wanted to compliment a con-goer on their costume and then had a second thought - "That may just be the way they dress normally." That thought doesn't occur to me in any other city I've visited.
I've gone to a lot of cons over the years, selling my various books and my experiences have always been good. But something about bringing Badass Girl to new readers is especially exciting. She's not for everyone, so readers who are attracted to the Badass Girl table are usually the smart, confident, tough chicks whom our fierce girl represents - my favorite type. It's inspiring to see young women - and men, too - connect with Badass Girl. It makes me realize we're doing something right.
Count the high planes comic fans in Friendly Fargo, ND among the new recruits to the Badass Girl Army!
Our fierce girl returned to the hardworking town for another round finding girls who kick ass - and men of the Badass Girl Army Men's Auxiliary Corps!
Badass Girl is kicking ass on bad guys and taking names for her post-apocalypse army of do-gooders.
Wow! Time goes fast when you’re raising a true Badass Girl!
Looking around, we see badass female characters emerging everywhere. My latest faves are Octavia and Raven from The 100. Shame on me for not getting hip to this awesome girl-powered series earlier. My 10-year-old nephew got me started this summer - and I can’t get enough!
I see so much of Badass Girl in these characters - smart, strong, thoughtful, young women standing up for what’s right and fighting for it. Seeing women like them in action gets me pumping my fist in the air every time.
Badass Girl is hitting the streets, too. We debuted her at AniMinneapolis in May to great response - and lots of other badasses wanted in on the act.
Coming up next, Debi is taking Badass Girl to CampbellCon in California as I introduce her to a new group of fans at ValleyCon Fargo, ND this month! Then WizardWorld-Madison, WI is due for some Badassness in December. Can’t wait for more comic/superhero/action fans to see her. We’re building a Badass Girl Army one fan at a time.
Just this week, we’re getting illustrator Brann Garvey started on Issue 2, so look for announcement of more issues in Badass Girl Saves the World coming soon.
This is just the beginning. As Badass Girl brings more fans into her mission of bringing justice to a lawless land, her adventures and legend will spread.
Don't wait to jump onboard - join the Badass Girl Army!
A lot happens in just a few months when you’re creating a new character. It might be tempting to think I forgot about her – but BADASS GIRL is not a personality who can be ignored
At MSP Comic Con in St. Paul in May, we teased the concept, passed out cards and met a lot of comic fans and artists. BADASS GIRL had a great reception. It was awesome seeing the light in people’s eyes when they saw the cover and heard about her story.
Now BADASS GIRL needs your help. If you’re excited about bringing a brave new girl to the comic book community, you have a great opportunity. Join the army and tell everyone you know about this girl who walks the post-apocalypse Earth, kicking ass and righting wrongs.
