  4. So, as always, I’m fucking in love witth Paulo Siqueira’s art.  This is the cover for Wolrd’s End 6. Siqueira really draws the best women in comics. They have unrealistic boobs, sure. But it doesn’t mean it’s not pretty to look at, right ? ^^ And his men aren’t ugly either, anyway.So if there is oversexualization, it goes for both sexes :)

    Wow. There is a strange conversation on Twitter about making Miss Martian transsexual, and that her whole story is a metaphor for being transsexual. Hum, what ? no ! Yes she isn’t comfortable with who/what she is, and she wants to change. But it has…

    I guess I’d have to see the conversation to see what you’re trying to say, but even if these fans were expressing a desire for M’gann’s arcs to become explicitly tied to transgender issues, I can’t see a problem with that. That’s their prerogative, to wish for better representation through a character they (presumably) love. If that doesn’t speak to you, then leave it alone. Don’t post about how weird you find it - no one asked you.

    On a related note, though, the fact that you a) referred to a theoretical trans person as “a transgender” and b) equated being trans with desiring or having had sexual reassignment surgery tells me that you either have little knowledge about or little respect for the trans community to begin with. “Transgender” is an adjective, not a noun, and not all transgender people want to physically transition from one binary gender to another. You could have found both of these facts with a very easy Google search.

    So instead of telling trans people that they’re “digging too deep,” you could consider doing some research to figure out why they have to dig so deep to find something that speaks to them in the first place.

    Ok I’ll just say this and stop.

    1) This was me reacting to a few people who wanted to radically change a specific character almost for the sake of it, it was not a debate on my views and knowledge of transsexuality.So yeah I didn’t google it, because that was not the point.

    2) This is Tumblr,hell, this is Internet, since when do you need to be asked to give an opinion or a reaction.

    3) Sorry if I offended anybody, was not my intention. 

    Bye.

  6. Well that’s it. I’ll stop giving my opinion on things. I tried to talk about ONE character being turned into a transexual, and instead the conversation shifted into my views on trans people (not the subject AT ALL). Stay on point. I guess I should have known better ….

Yes she isn’t comfortable with who/what she is, and she wants to change. But it has nothing to do with sexuality, she is from a race of monsters who enslaves and slaughters other races, and she doesn’t want to be a part of them because she doesn’t share their views and doesn’t want people to put her in the same lot as the other white martians. THAT’S why she shifts into a human looking green martian.

    Now this has nothing to do with my views on the subject. I’m all for diverse representation of society in comics (the argument on twitter was representation), but don’t change an existing character into something completely different for the sake of it. Create NEW diverse characters. Like Bunker in the Teen Titans.  He is pretty cool. 

    Now on the matter of metaphors, if everything has to be seen as a metaphor in comics, then Batman is a bipolar gay pedophile. So let’s not dig too much into things that aren’t there. 

    PS : If the intent of the creator of Miss Martian was for her to be a metaphor for transsexuality, then my bad, forget everything I said.

    The point of a metaphor is that it doesn’t have to be literal - sure, in the show, M’gann’s discomfort seems not to be hinged on her gender identity (on the contrary, she seems quite comfortable carrying out traditionally female tasks and roles on the team), but the way she grapples with her “true” identity has many, many parallels with the experience of many transgender people (“transsexual” is generally not a preferred term, and given the fluidity of M’gann’s physical shape, is definitely not applicable here anyway). Some of the major parallels I’d note:

    Hi :) I have no problem with trans people connecting with the character journey, that’s fine. We can all relate to character situations that are not literal but remind us of things we live. What I was talking about was the fact that those people on Ttwitter wanted M’gann to be LITERALLY transgender in mainstream comics, when I felt it wasn’t what she was about. It doesn’t mean I’m right or wrong on this, just that it’s not my view of the character. And maybe using the word “strange” wasn’t that smart, sure, but the whole thing felt like it to me. Because making her transgender would be huge. It doesn’t just involve her, but her surrounding cast, and her love interests as well. And the shape shifting makes it all even more complicated. She can revert back whenever she wants, while real life transgenders can’t. Once they’re are operated on, they can’t revert back on a whim. So, here what I meant. Hope it clarifies things. Now you don’t have to agree with me, I just wanted to talk about it :) Peace.

    PS : For those who wondered, I talk about her whole history here, I used the Young Justice tag because most my exp with the character was with that show, and she was a main character there. 

  8. Watching “The last ship”, I realized Eric Dane would make a pretty decent movie Deathstroke. He already has the military phisique and the hair, and can apparently play the serious tough guy. I could imagine him making a cameo in Dawn of Justice, Luthor hires a mercenary to take down Batman.

  10. The full cover of my take on Deathstroke’s new costume (designed by Tony Daniel). Did an alternative version with a white eye instead of the red one. I changed a few things in the design to accomodate my tastes, but Daniel himself said the suit my change depending on the needs of the missions, so it’s all fine, it’s an adaptive design.

  11. WIP 4 (I guess, stopped counting) : Deathstroke all colored up. Full cover later today.

  13. The Falling Skies cover  I teased this week, inspired by illustrator Mucha’s style and compositions. I kept the side panels grey so that it’s clear Lexi is the focus of this cover.
