Some of you have seen Strip Search, some of you haven’t. Either way, I drew this comic on the show and then I redrew it at home because people wanted to buy it and I can’t let them put my art on their wall if I didn’t at least TRY TO MAKE IT LOOK NICE.
Okay, so I’m not sure why but for some reason there are a ton, a TON, of Princess Batman costumes, possibly more than the standard Batgirl costume. They come in 2 different flavors, bumblebee and hot pink. So, I’m just making one big Super Princess Batman compilation post (alternatively Ballerina Batman since those fluffy skirts can be ambiguous).
Don’t ask which Robin that is because I cannot keep track of all the dang Robins at this point… “Stephanie Carrie Graydrake-Waynetodd”
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
This post is my big PDA to Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie for making Miss America Chavez so amazing in the current run of Young Avengers. Growing up, I didn’t see many characters who “looked like me” in popular culture, much less ever find one to really love. I didn’t like my crazy hair or the color of my skin because none of the stories I read or movies I watched ever included a girl who matched up to what I saw in the mirror.
So THANK YOU for including this strong kicker of ass in your book! I wish I could convince Reed Richards to send me back in time with a copy so I didn’t have to settle for being Princess Jasmine three years in a row for Halloween. I felt incredibly uncomfortable as a child, worried people might be confused if I tried to dress up as anyone *white* and I LIVED ONLY A COUPLE HOURS FROM THE MEXICAN BORDER.
I didn’t mean to ramble so much in this post, guys. Here’s the tumblr translation for everyone: #YO TENGO MISS AMERICA FEELS
