I had to include the artist’s comments that went with this pic:
i tried reading some of the new dc comics, cause of the whole reboot, i thought, hey, i’ll jump in on some of that. i do love the characters in the cartoons…
see its a personal nuisance for me. i worked for years on witchblade, working hard to get the whole tna reputation out of the way. ron and i did relatively well with that
we were constantly taking shit from the people who read superhero comics, and got a crapload of condescension
and now… well.. seems like the shoe is on the other foot
because… just … wow. there are many many amazingly well done comics, just brilliant in both artwork and writing.. but some are just… uncomfortable
i am a great believer that sexuality in comics serves a purpose, and works best when earned through character development.
it is supposed to be subservient to the story, it needs to be given a better purpose than just… hey, look sex!
so far the female characters in dc have been a bit… um…lets just say mishandled.
this is merely one man’s opinion. no better nor more important than anyone else’s. if you disagree that is your right.
and i hate the damn harley, arkhampromiscuousoversexualizedjailbait design
always have always will. it lacks the tongue in cheek humor, it lacks the likeability, but it replaces it with a lollipop sucking jailbait look….sorry…just..no
and for anyone who thinks themselves clever to go and point out that i’m drawing and writing sunstone, and yet i have a problem with this, i will save you the embarrassment.
sunstone is a comic ABOUT sexuality.
therefore there is sex in it
these are comics about superhero’s that are saving the world on a daily basis… that is their premise…see what i’m getting at here?
oh and to explain my problem with catwoman XD
in the comics she often fights the same supercriminals as batman…
but, batman is walking around in a bodyarmor nowadays… selina… in a latex catsuit
what is the armor rating on your average catsuit?
