i tried reading some of the new dc comics, , cause of the whole reboot, i though, hey, i'll jump in on some of that. i do love the characters in the cartoons...
see its a personal nuisance for me. i worked for years on witchblade, working hard to get the whole tna reputation out of the way. ron and i did relatively well with that
we were constantly taking shit from the people who read superhero comics, and got a crapload of condescension
and now... well.. seems like the shoe is on the other foot
because... just ... wow. there are many many amazingly well done comics, just brilliant in both artwork and writing.. but some are just... uncomfortable
i am a great believer that sexuality in comics serves a purpose, and works best when earned through character development.
it is supposed to be subservient to the story, it needs to be given a better purpose than just... hey, look sex!
so far the female characters in dc have been a bit... um...lets just say mishandled.
this is merely one man's opinion. no better nor more important than anyone else's. if you disagree that is your right.
and i hate the damn harley, arkhampromiscuousoversexualizedjailbait design
always have always will. it lacks the tongue in cheek humor, it lacks the likeability, but it replaces it with a lollipop sucking jailbait look....sorry...just..no
and for anyone who thinks themselves clever to go and point out that i'm drawing and writing sunstone, and yet i have a problem with this, i will save you the embarrassment.
sunstone is a comic ABOUT sexuality. therefore there is sex in it
these are comics about superhero's that are saving the world on a daily basis... that is their premise...see what i'm getting at here?
oh and to explain my problem with catwoman XD
in the comics tshe often fights the same supercriminals as batman...
buut, batman is walking aroung in a boryarmor nowadays... selina... in a latex catsuit
what is the armor rating on your average catsuit?
we will ask killer croc XD
aaand fixed XD, "s"word removed thank you for turning the discussion of poor handling of female characters in comics to a discussion of semantics.. it was... pretty entertaining and in some points enlightening
so here is where all the confusion came from
my name is stjepan sejic and i am a croat!
so , in croatia we have taken cursing and derogatory terms to a level that many would think unimaginable
it is often so crazy that some of the offensive words never quite... graduate
slutty for instance , in my country never really got to the rank where it would be used to define a woman's sexual behavior in a derogatory way.
we have about 60 far worse words for that
here word pretty much is used for a dressing style, that is ..oh lets say less than practical.
,now that you know this, i think the original intention of my message becomes clearer ...tho many never had any problems of guessing it
message was that female characters deserve more dignity in their treatment in comics...to be more than a eyecandy afterthought existing for nothing else than to hump random people without any insight to why.
i'm just saying if we have to know why a guy has a different colored suit, it would be useful to know why a female character is about to have sex with a random guy.
ultimately i found the right words i wanted to use to explain this situation
it is political correctness.
you presumed that every country has it as highly developed as the top few.
unfortunately we do not, that train is coming to my country too, but its slow moving and we put obstructions on the tracks
till then , there will probably be some confusions, so try to realize that maybe the person talking to you is not being judgmental, they just express differently because such is the norm of their country
