Ralph and Sue Dibny by AdamWithers Ralph and Sue Dibny by AdamWithers
Commission sketch from Heroes Con 2012; Pencil. I laid the picture out and drew Ralph/Elongated Man and :iconcomfortlove: drew Sue.

I love these two. They're such a great couple, such a great partnership. They're one of the examples you can point to when comic writers or editors claim that you can't have interesting stories about married couples (I wanna punch somebody every time they say that crap! :shakefist: ) because these two together are like two halves of one super-detective. They complete each other and make each other more fun and more interesting.

Killing Sue off was one of the dumbest things DC ever did. Not a terrible story, but certainly a terrible idea.

"Not a terrible story".....uh, most disagree. It was DC's shallow attempt to get "edgy" and there is documented, witnessed proof that that was all it was.

If you Google the story up, you'll hate the comic just as much. They had entire board meetings based around deciding who to rape.

You know, I DID read it. The snark isn't making you sound more authoritative, just like more of a dick. And it is possible for a story to be both decently written and a terrible idea. I'm not an Identity Crisis apologist - there was a lot about that story I didn't like, and a fair bit that I hated, but there was a fair bit that was pretty well written too. You have to be able to see all sides of a thing, not just paint it all with one brush because part of it really sucked for you.

Yeah, my first introduction to her was the story where she was killed off. ^^; I did like the story though (like you said, not a bad story).

I want you two to know how much I *love* this. I knew it'd be great, but when it showed up in the mail? AMAZING.
Everything I could have hoped for.

Thank you again!!! It's one of my favorite pieces.

You're very welcome. I'm happy we could entertain you by entertaining ourselves. Seriously, though-- asking this cute couple to co-draw another cute couple? Recipe for fun.

I find it a bit hilarious that it's always the stretchy guys that get happily married. Reed Richards, Ralph Dibney... Well, okay, maybe not Plastic Man. :lmao:

Another fun anecdote. The two most famous comic book couples involving a stretchy guy... And in both of them, the wife is named Sue.

Enough fooling around! Excellent work on this one!

Hadn't thought about that. Though I'd argue that Lois & Clark are MUCH more famous than Ralph & Sue. ;)

Note that I said "most famous couples with a stretchy guy". ;)
