To help celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month (March), I along with some of WordPress’s best bloggers are teaming up to shine a spotlight on some of our favorite fearless females from movies, comics, television, and beyond.
This weeks entry comes from Michael J. Miller over at My Comic Relief . Michael is one of the coolest cats I know and works tirelessly to make the world of comic books and Star Wars fun and educational for the students at the school he teaches at. This in turn has helped a new generation of fans to appreciate the art forms and hopefully has made a new generation of fans to carry the flame.
For his entry into “Fiction’s Fearless Females”, Michael chose the character Amy Pond from the Dr. Who franchise. I have to admit that I have never watched Dr. Who (except a minute or two from the black & white ones that aired around the time of Red Dwarf and Robin Hood on PBS.) but after reading this I feel that I need to catch-up on this show. It sounds so fascinating and if Karen Gillan’s portrayal of Amelia Pond over three series is any indication of how great a show it seems to be, I’ve really done myself a disservice by not watching it sooner.
Anyways, read Michael’s great write-up of Amy Pond and his love of Dr. Who at the link below and stop to check out Michael’s other great comic reviews, social commentary, and his other love letters to comic books and other dorky things.
