Escher Girls: Catwoman

I found this amazing article of assorted artists making fun of the above cover, so I felt inspired to delve a little further into Selina’s chiropractic nightmare. There was, of course, the controversy at Catwoman’s introduction to the New 52 lineup, including our sex kitten frolicking literally in her lingerie. Because why draw a catsuit…… Continue reading Escher Girls: Catwoman

New York City trip summary (about comics, what else?!)

This week, I was fortunate enough to travel to New York City (on my school’s dime with excused absences, no less!) I spent most of it sampling every sushi place I could find but I also did nerd things a-plenty. Nintendo World Formerly the Pokemon Center of Time Square, now Nintendo World.

Escher Girls: A mixed bag of scoliosis

Sorry it’s been a bit since I posted more fabulously illogical poses for women but hey, you can get your fix now. First of all, poor Psylocke, AGAIN. Her unknown superpower is having the spine of an al dente noodle, with legs to match. Next, Spider-Woman. Because that’s DEFINITELY how clothes fit. (And if they…… Continue reading Escher Girls: A mixed bag of scoliosis

Female creators: a(nother!) new series

Because I’m an ambitious, curious thing and I think it’s worth telling, I’m going to start a series of profiles/interviews with female comic creators (writers, artists, publishers etc.). I’ve already got an overwhelming response and expect it to pick up even more as I start publishing them. Who knows, it may even end up the…… Continue reading Female creators: a(nother!) new series

Nerd Culture and criticism: “if you don’t like it, leave”

This is as much a personal post as it is a post about research, nerd culture, comics, or anything else. Carry on. — Listen. It shouldn’t come as any surprise to people that nerd culture and those most vocal in it can be a bit…touchy.  (And yes, here, I’m totally talking about male nerds.) It’s…… Continue reading Nerd Culture and criticism: “if you don’t like it, leave”
