  1. The Elektra picture infuriates me. She’s a ninja assassin. She relies on speed, stealth and agility in combat. Why would she wear heels?

    And the Green Lantern one shows the difference in how male characters are treated compared to females. His picture shows him looking strong and threatening. The other four, the women, are all shown looking sexy. Their pictures highlight their sexuality, as opposed to their strength. This is why comics have such a bad reputation for misogyny. And I think this is something we male geeks need to be a lot more aware of, and a lot more cautious of.

    • The Comic-Verse Artistic Spotlight is all about showing work from a whole range of styles. Some styles divide people but that doesn’t mean they are any less popular among others. I see both sides of the argument and remain a neutral party but I see what you are saying. Next week will be the final edition of this artist and maybe the next one that is featured will better suit your tastes and preferences. Thanks for the comment and for sharing your opinion. I’m all for stronger portrayals of women in comics and just having more female creators involved in the medium as a whole than there are now.

  2. House Of Flying Scalpel’s post on Pretty Deadly as well as your Off The Shelf article make me want to check out that title when it comes out in Trades. Great links! And thanks as always for the plug!
