Battlefield executions by superheroes: legality and utility examined.

Started by Stephen Alexander. Last reply by Stephen Alexander Jun 29. 2 Replies

Recently, I was inspired by some projects at Graphic Justice and the blog Law and the Multiverse. I decided to take a look at an aspect of superhero literature that often gets ignored or short-shrift: the battlefield execution. Is it 'legal' for…Continue

Saw The Avengers. Quick assessment; devoid of plot...nice character studies though...Liked Mark Millar's more realistic and adult take in The Ultimates...hated the Independence Day Power Ranger Aliens. Sam Jackson is just not bad ass enough as Nick Fury, it's like they neutered Jules from Pulp Fiction. Captain America was more entertaining to me in this movie. HULK was cool. Thor was ok...and Iron Man was the usual...the center of the action. Hawkeye and Black Widow were unnecessary and annoying. It was a fun cookie cutter corporate movie with not enough epic swagger to compete with Dark Knight or Avatar. But I got to see the Avengers on the big screen...so I will shut up now.

@ Brian; please check out our online preview: 

One preview opens up like a book:

http://issuu.com/nightray2002/docs/_kulprit-chap1_issuu

and the other allows you to scroll down the page if that's your preference:

http://scriptgraphics.weebly.com/kulprit-preview.html  

I check out all the URL posted by Black creators as I have here with Stealth (which I already knew about) and the images at muddycolors.blogspot.com. This it the truest way to 'see' what's out there. Check out everything that comes across you field of vision. Don't necessarily buy the hype, see the work and read the story for yourself. 

Kyle Baker was pushing the envelope with 'Truth', much like Denys Cowan did on the Milestone Line of books and The Black Panther's "Sins of our Fathers" series. Not necessarily the taste for everyone but I liked what they were attempting to do. Check our stuff and see it it fits your pallet. Let me know.

Comment by Brian Williams on May 4, 2012 at 3:24pm

I never really got into Young Avengers. I bought the Truth but was turned off by the artwork. I guess The Patriot could be interesting but he would have to be written in a way that is true to our experience if you dig what I'm saying. Not to knock white writers but most of the black heroes written by them are not true to our experience at all. Even some black creators miss the point while trying to create lasting black superhero characters. Our heroes will begin to resonate once we stop trying to imitate. In other words...use our unique experience to build heroes that are unique with their own hang ups and attitudes. Bat Man has all these jacked up psychological problems because of the brutal murder of his parents. Imagine the psychological underpinnings and potential character nuances that racism poses to a black superhero. If these kinds of things are discussed...I believe black superheroes can move into new and compelling territory.

My team and I have been pushing hard to get our book in the hands of people that like to read good fiction. We're now being carried by AMAZON.COM no less! It features 96 pages of graphic novel excellence done in a crime noir style. It's not for the faint of heart, but for those who like a dense, well executed and powerful read punctuated with intense action. 

We tell people to read the free online preview first. This story isn't the run of the mill 'fluffy' stuff that comics are known for (you know: the highly sexualized, over muscled fan boy created heroes). We don't want anyone to waste their hard earned cash on a genre they're not into. We're pretty confident here. Keep in mind this isn't as much a big comic book as it is a novel done in the comic book format. 

My hope is that you'll check out the free preview, and let me know what you think. We provide two options for the online preview:

Yeah, I didn't mean to not be sexy. We ALL want to be sexy! (Says the woman who just mowed about half the property, and it's an acre! Thank the Good Lord for riding lawnmowers, but I'd never used one before today.)

That's the kind of Superhero I like. More than just positioned like a model at a porn shoot....

My name is William Satterwhite and I am the creator of the superhero webcomic Stealth (http://www.stealthcomic.com/), I am currently putting together a Stealth original graphic novel and am conducting a fundraising campaign for the project. Any help that anyone can give is appreciated, if you can't give money please help spread the word and pass around the link (http://www.indiegogo.com/stealth?c=home&a=505858). Thanks!

@ 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.

Comment by Brian Williams on April 29, 2012 at 4:55pm

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.

Comment by Anthony on April 29, 2012 at 4:17pm

Thanks for the Invite!! JIROBOY is reporting for duty!!  I plan to be very active in this group--Just let me know what you need me to do!!!

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.
