"Miss A’s clothes represent her. It’s impossible to overstate how significant this is for a female superhero. The costumes of male superheroes have always been powerful tools for making and owning the self; their colours, contours and crests proudly declare their mission, identity, and powers, transforming them into walking advertisements for themselves, capturing in the sleek simplicity of iconography a snapshot of what the hero can do, where he’s been, and what he aspires to become. Historically, this has been far less true of the costumes of female superheroes. Often derived from the costumes of male superheroes and/or prioritizing skin and cleavage at the expense of character, the costumes of female superheroes tend to lack deep meaning and individuality. Too often, the way female superheroes are dressed (and of course, the way they’re drawn), makes them more of a thing to have than a person to be; too often, female superheroes are vehicles of objectification, rather than identification."

Diceratops does a lovely article about Miss America Chavez’s style which I’m afraid to forward to Jamie in case his head explodes. Though, I suppose that at least would be very WicDiv. I almost quoted the last three paragraphs, but I don’t want to take the climax away from Anna’s prose. (via kierongillen)

#DailySketch Rocket, Groot and Tellos.
Every year, August 12th rolls around and I think the same thing. How did another year pass. It’s been 7 years now. Doesn’t seem possible.
Today’s piece is for Mike Wieringo, one of the masters of talking animals. Miss you, buddy.

"Just so we’re clear… I freely admit to my failings. I depend too much on instinct when I should be using intelligence — and I still have lots to learn. But I’m no poseur or glory hound. I do the best I can. And I take my responsibilities seriously. Very seriously!” - Spider-Girl (May Parker)

Kamala Khan as Ms Marvel in #80 for schwarzbrot

ms marvel was a favourite of mine since the animated x-men (lol a very long time ago) and knowing that an amazing girl has taken up her title, i wanted to make this more than a sketch like the previous request fills. used white in this and had to mix some of the tones.

Bill Sienkiewicz 1984: The New Mutants #18
Glynis Wein: Color

From the very first page of New Mutants #18, with the bedspread blended into the Demon Bear, you know that this is going to be something special. And not only did Sienkiewicz give us a Demon Bear that was truly terrifying, but this is also the issue we are introduced to Warlock via an interlude. What a tour-de-force!

Bill recounts his start on the title in an interview with Comic Book Resources:

I think I started to feel more in touch with the parts of the bear. I never felt I could have done a real bear. It was something that felt bigger than life. It was not bound by the conventions of light or shadow… or physics. It was an emotional element. I think that it was really liberating.

Chris Claremont came to me. He asked me if I wanted to do the Demon Bear story. He said he thought I’d be great for that. I was offered the X-Men after I left Moon Knight. I turned it down because I felt like it was too high profile of a book. Today people kill to be able to do that book. But I felt that I didn’t want to do another group. Moon Knight to me — even though it was one character — was a group, dealing with all of his multiple personalities.

When Chris gave me the plot outline I felt like I was going to play with it. Somewhere along the line, he asked if I’d like to do this on a little more regular basis. I said, “Yeah, I’m having fun.” So I felt like while I was deciding what I was going to do next, I would do the New Mutants. The main thing is, I felt I could play around a lot.

And that was a plus. We got letters. We probably lost as many people as we gained. We had some people writing in saying, “This is amazing, this wonderful, it’s really changed” to “Stop him, Jim, before he kills again.” Flip the coin and you’d get as many responses [for as against]. [T]he thing I liked about it, it wasn’t apathetic. It was polarizing. I tended to appreciate that.
