If you like so much to read (watch movies) with strong woman protagonist, I recommend to read a webcomic (not based on true story, of course, but it has a great female protagonist and is all over cool -and not only one woman, but a lot of female characters there are pretty strong and well written), a steampunk fantasy webcomic (if you like this genre) called Girl Genius, written by Phil and Katja Foglio. Its free to read and you can find it on its website. Great stuff.
I AM A DIEHARD FAN OF GIRL GENIUS.
It’s like my favorite thing. I hooked my ex-roommate on it just so I could fansqueal with him. I would come up with fan theories and stuff - I was convinced for the longest time that the invisibility device they use to escape from Castle Wulfenbach in volume two was actually the time machine, but that appears to not be the case. My last two phones have been named Otilia and Castle Heterodyne. I reread “opera week” (Wulfenbach vs the circus) on like a weekly basis. I’ve been fiendishly devouring thrice-weekly updates for well over 10 years.
So yeah. Girl Genius is the business.
(weirdly enough, I believe my parents knew the Foglios in passing - my folks were fairly well-established Kentucky SCA/con folk in the 80s, and I remember them mentioning the Foglios once or twice, back when they were doing Myth Adventures, What’s New, and Buck Godot. I also recall my dad mentioning that my brother and I made some sort of cameo appearance in one of Richard and Wendy Pini’s works, but I’ve never been able to figure out which one. This may have been my overactive childhood imagination misinterpreting his words though.)
(this may have been the hardest I’ve ever publicly nerded out.)
