I was wondering WTF, until I looked at the model's page.

If God wanted us to read long stories, he wouldn't have invented Cliff notes.


Do yourselves a favor: go straight to the models links, kill a fer kittens.

At least fantasic 4 has epic battles with cool foes. this is just cartoon boonerland.

So Mr. Deodato was fired from Marvel and has a new comic. Why does he not have to pay for that ad?

I'm kind of in a Moore, Ellis, Morrison comic headspace right now.

Comic characters with big tits. What an original idea.
 
2003-04-10 06:57:36 AM
Having checked out the "story" page, I have a little question here: Are there really nerds out there who get off on this juvenile, derivative, humourless, seventies-style, sexless soft porn, cluttered, unreadable, rambling bollox?
 
2003-04-10 07:00:58 AM
Damn, missed out unimaginative.

Why did this immediately spring to mind?

Ah. The people who brought us Banzai Girl

You know what would be interesting?
If people who knew comics and this genre were to post in this thread with feedback, critique and comments.

You know what might not be so interesting?
A whole bunch of people saying how much all comics suck.

(I don't know jack about comics and it would be interesting to learn more..)

But just on a side note, I was really interested in glasshousegraphics and tried to read through the whole site.
Site owners? If you're listening?
The navigation is just a bit less than user friendly.. :p

Hmmm... What would Archie and Jughead have done if Betty and Veronica dressed like that?

Ku_No_Ichi:- I don't have a problem with comics/graphic novels in general. I was referring to this specific one. I've not been world's biggest comic reader since I was about 16, but I've read many of the most popular graphic novels and some other odds and ends recommended to me by an insanely comic mad friend and have really enjoyed them (Top 10 is my most recent find). I hope my post didn't sound like I was referring to comics in general.

I'm a comics reader. I don't think they all suck, just bad ones with impossible women falling out of their clothes, monosyllabic anti-heros, etc etc. Hence my listing of the comic writers I am currently following (among others)
 
2003-04-10 07:29:33 AM
Now I usually don't have a problem with scantly clad heronines but Jade Warriors?.. christ just call them the suckee suckee squad... then make the live action movie with Mimi Miyagi, and Asia Carrera so you can jerk off to your hearts content.
 
2003-04-10 07:32:56 AM
ok..... this got through with the "cool" tag?


is there some fine print that says "If you live in your parents' basement" in that graphic? I'm running at pretty high resolution...
 
2003-04-10 07:34:21 AM
Ok, I'm with Dancingshoes too. :)
 
2003-04-10 07:43:01 AM
i guess the tag works if you look at it like:

"Cool!"

*chortle*
*snort*
*sneeze*
*retainer falls out*
*loses balance*
*falls down stairs*
*lands in heap of laundry*
*chortle*

I've always sniffed at the comic industry's apparent confusion on why more females don't read comics, and then I see crap like this. I'm not even against scantily clad, but you can only suspend your disbelief for so long.

For instance, when a woman is covered from head to toe in armor, except for her stomach and cleavage. Oh no, that doesn't leave any vulnerable spots. Or the above picture of a semi-naked woman lounging on the couch... this as a character bio picture? Nice to know I should be afraid of naked women slinking on my couch (with her own surgically planted pillows)!

Big breasts help when fighting crime, common knowledge.

There's no farking mystery here. Comic books represent women as men would like them to be (because they are made by men).

Unfortunately most women are not fit loose and dirty sex kittens.

I might have to start reading comics again...

/when did they start putting words in there?
 
2003-04-10 08:26:36 AM
Personally, I think I'd rather go with

Comic books are (usually) fantasy. I doubt you could sell many comics (or tv shows, or movies for that matter) by having a homely, biatchy woman on the cover. I'm not saying being homely or biatchy is bad, it's just not gonna sell. Guys, particularly the logical, self-loathing ones that buy comics, are realistic enough to know they'll never find a chick that could provide gratification 24-7...real life interferes.
 
2003-04-10 08:40:44 AM
While there are literaly hundreds of great comic books, they are out numbered 10 to 1 by the status quo crap like this shiate.
 
2003-04-10 09:07:52 AM
uuuuuuuuhhhhhhh...??????????

Yeah, I saw your post up there, Jeff...but it still doesn't really explain why this is front page worthy.

"I'm not saying being homely or biatchy is bad"

Homely or biatchy is bad, come on, say it with me homely or biatchy is bad

Ok go on about your business. Have a better day for having re-learned that little factoid.

Agreed, Underwhelmed - I can think of a dozen comics that should have gotten that link instead of that crap. I'd start listing, but I don't want a 'this comic is better than that one' flamewar starting because of me. If you like comics, you know what ones are good, and if you don't, you shouldn't be looking for good ones on Fark.

Has anyone seen the Johnny The Homocidal Maniac where two comic-book super heroes go to thwart two regular looking bank robbers?

The superhero guy with a mysterious past is so impossibly muscled that he can barely bend his arms and the girl super hero is defeated when she leans too far back and her huge breast snap her spine like a twig. She then suffocates under the weight of her huge mammaries.

"Wow honey, it's like stabbing a gummi bear!"
 
2003-04-10 09:22:47 AM
Yech. More T&A comics. Thank you so much Image.
 
2003-04-10 09:29:45 AM
Well everyone knows to have a strong self confidient female lead character in any story she has to have huge farking tits.

Its all about the mammaries.

This thread reminds me of this weeks PVP strips.
www.pvponline.com

Coincidently the female character of that strip is named jade as well...

This is what I hated about comics. I used to manage a comic store, and when writers/artists would hype up some new book, have tons of industry ads in magazines, get everybody on the bandwagon for 2 issues, and then "disapear", it really hurt the industry. What if "Your Favorite TV Show" was only on 7 or 8 weeks out of 13?

Guys like Deodato, Dale Keowan, Jae Lee, Sam Keith and many more are alienating fans, and jeopardizing the future of the medium.
 
2003-04-10 10:04:29 AM
I used to collect Usagi Yojimbo and years later met the writer/Artist and his wife. Mr. Sakai is one friendly, humble guy! He autographed a book for me and did a little drawing in the front cover just for me!

Anyways, he's proof that not all comic book artists are boob-crazed virgins. Granted, he's rather rare.


Oh, and Dancingshoes -- I quite liked Totally Hot PvP Jade. Frank Cho sure can draw the ladies! Someone should post an example of his work for everyone.
