Man, So Bendis finally closed the Bendis Board today. I hadn’t been posting there n years and it wasn’t what it used to be but man, that place was important. I was on it about 14 years ago and met some of my best friends there.
I realized that in the handful of years that I’ve been tabling at conventions and offering prints, they’ve all be the requisite male super heroes, more or less.
My book HIGH CRIMES that I do with my good friend Christopher Sebela (@xtop), has a strong female lead, and it’s time I let that permeate my print work as well, as I’ve been guilty of under representing strong female characters in that way. You’re either part of the problem, or part of the solution.
So I decided to draw Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers). A strong, fully-clothed female hero who has her own series that isn’t written by a dude, but instead, a female writer with a strong voice for women in comics— an industry that has a lot of ground to gain with regards to 51% of the population.
I’ll have this at table J-09 this weekend at the Rose City Comic Con here in Portland. Come say hello!
