Honestly, I cant stand the way Children's Crusade handles Wiccan and Hulkings relationship. Every issue I have read just screams out "HEY WERE GAY" "HEY LOOK AT US WE ARE HOMOSEXUAL" "HEY HEY HEY LOOK 2 MEN ARE KISSING" none if ever feels natural to me, I think Batwoman has pulled it off better than any book has been able to.
But Wiccan and Hulking have never, to my recollection, actually kissed on-panel. Which is a big problem I have with this. Like, they're allowed to be all over each other flirtatiously but they're not allowed to actually do anything like kissing.
I'm rooting for Batwoman. Lesbians get less exposure anyway and that book is just beautifully written and drawn.
That's cool. I had an inkling that it would be bending the rules but thought I'd ask just to make sure. I'll see if I have time, I have some assessments coming up that I need to work hard for and those obviously take priority, so whether I enter or not, good luck to everyone who does :)
Anyone who calls inkwash and watercolors something new to comics clearly needs to get themselves out of the tiny box they've locked themselves into.
Exactly my thoughts. I've been messing around with watercolours since forever because that's what I learned to paint with, not that I'd consider myself to be a proper artist or anything, it just seemed like a natural and easy way to colour comic art. But people like Mike Mayhew have been doing this for years, not to mention Jill Thompson on Beasts of Burden and many others. Different in a world where digital colours is the norm, but hardly groundbreaking.
Glad to see mine made it in there despite the barely existing sword! This is the toughest voting thread I've ever seen. So many great entries, and it sort of pains me to choose one, but I'm going with IcePrinceX
I like it, it's kind of like this character on Blue Exorcist who pulls her sword out of her chest, it's crazy!
I have no idea what you're referring to, but thank you!
