Just a little Dinah/Diana sparring scene from Birds of Prey #68 that makes me happy. Because I need something to take my mind off the colossal awful that Azzarello is inflicting on Wondy.

Wondy kicking ass in plain clothes....I'm turned on.

It's definitely a good example of showing you can draw a lady to be throwing a good fight and look hot as hell at the same time (there are a couple of ass shots here and there, but they seem to make sense or at least it looks like Benes is trying to do a dynamic panel and drawing the ass is an extra bonus).

That's the weird thing about Benes: He gets a lot of criticism for throwing a lot of fanservice into his artwork, but he's actually a really good artist. He does great with the action scenes, and is not bad when it comes to faces. He just throws an ass shot in there every chance he gets.

Hell, I'd go as far as to say that he's gotten even better over time with stuff like anatomy and clothing (I couldn't help but notice how weirdly Diana's t-shirt was sitting on her throughout the scene).

One thing I've noticed is that he seems to have a similar style to almost every other Brazillian artist that's also in comics--guys like Diego Bernard, Mariah Benes, even Adriana Melo, who gets a little more detail in, has a lot in common.

He definitely has gotten better. I loved the art on the latest Simone Birds of Prey, especially when you compare it to some of the...questionable choices right before the reboot. And it's lightyears above what most artists do.

Don't forget Ivan Reis. That man is probably my favorite artist at DC right now. And you're right. you can sometimes see similarities in the art style of people of different nations, which makes sense. They would grow up influenced by the art that they see, what's around them, their heroes. It seems to be that way with other forms of art, and things like architecture. Also: Didn't know Benes was Brazilian. I learned something today.

Certainly explains the...bodaciousness of a lot of his pin-ups, don't it?

Ah, my bad--I assumed he had a fairly uninterrupted run until he dropped off.
