@ ruth- that Wonder Woman is awesome. I would read Wonder Woman on a regular basis if she was drawn like this. If you have read the most recent run of Wonder Woman in DC's New 52...it's pretty ridiculous. People just don't take the time or understand how to position female characters. I promise to change that with my SOPHISTICATED LADY One Shot.

when you get the opportunity...post the slickest origin page or pin up you can telling us who Jiroboy is and where we can get this product. If you don't have any product, tell us what your challenges are so we can begin to troubleshoot as a group and figure out how to get you moving. BTW I have already peeped JIRO because you and I are already friends on the site and it's very hot....I'm looking forward to getting my copy.

Oh yes, I realize that the market is driven by hormone-laden teen boys. (LOL) And the bottom line is that sex sells.

But some of us women collected comics back in the day. (Unfortunately I lost 3/4 my collection due to a broken water pipe in my house.) There is a market. Perhaps small, but it's there.

Comment by Brian Williams on April 29, 2012 at 1:22pm

Ruth,

I can dig it. I know what you are saying here but the thing I try and tell people who have that gripe is this...Superman and Batman are physical specimens. There bodies appear the way they do because superheroes are basically pop culture knock offs of The Greek Gods. The Greeks valued the art of the physical body and it's ability to perform certain skillful actions. If you look at popular athletes...they all have finely tuned and sculpted bodies that enable them to excel at their given trade. If we suspend disbelief long enough to accept the fact that superheroes can exist then we would have to postulate that they are the peak of physical perfection. Nobody would believe or be interested in Superman if he was overweight or had asthma...not because it's not interesting but because it kind of dampens the escapism element inherent in superhero storytelling. I use Serena Williams as a great example of a current female athlete that has a real life exaggerated physique that reminds you of a superhero. She's muscular, with a big chest, thin waist and large derriere. She's larger than life and no doubt that physique has enabled her to become the elite athlete that she is. I think the same thing would be true for female superheroes. If the guys have perfect bodies in the comics then so will the girls. I think that you see more flesh when it comes to women because of the difference in clothing and fashion. Also...unfortunately, most comic book writers and artists that control the industry right now are males and they cater to a predominantly male audience...and sex sells...it always will. I think women writers and and artists need to step up as well and start creating their own characters so we can see the female superhero from a different angle. I know that I have already begun plans to do my own black female super heroine who is an amalgam of Super Girl/Wonder Woman/ Pam Grier called Sophisticated Lady. When it's released...you will see that she is strong, powerful and pleasing to the eye...but she is not to be trifled with. SHE is a real SUPERHERO. To me...that's the point of a superhero...they are SENSATIONAL.

Thank you for inviting me!

My own opinions are focused on the art used in mass market comics. Too sexualized and unrealistic. I hate the way that women are portrayed, even when they're strong women, it's all B&B (boobs and butts). I personally prefer a more stark, less sensationalized style. But that's just me...

OTHER SIDE OF THE TUNNEL - FLASH FICTION BY GERRENCE GEORGE

Posted by Gerrence George on April 21, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

She hated this part of the time travel process, but it was necessary. The G’s pressed against her coal colored skin and stretched her cheeks back past the point of pain. It hurt. Bad. But it was worth it. She pictured his face to help block the pain of traveling through the quantum tunnel. He was on the other side. The man who loved her, then tried to have her killed. He tried to hide in the past. That’s what he does, but it didn’t matter. “I’ll find you.” She thought, as she pressed the accelerator on her personal transport cycle, gritting her teeth in agony. “No matter what era, galaxy, or existence known to man you try to go to, I’ll find you. You can’t hide from me.”



She’s able to stand the pain because she knows a deeper pain awaits her in the other side of the tunnel. Her man. Her love, who she had given herself over to in every way, sent three enforcers to kill her an hour ago. But that was the mistake of men throughout the history of time, ego. He underestimated her… Continue

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
