Since March is Women's History Month, Marvel are putting out a series of variant covers, all by female artists, and since they are not limited to drawing female characters, aside from being (IMHO) a much better idea than DC's "Cheescake covers" (We need to rely on Grayson covers for the "Beefcake" covers) some of them are just gorgeous!

Look at all the pretty )

Greetings True Believers!

I love old-school OHMUs. I picked up a handful at Wizard-Con. I really like the art and the way they really went all-out with the bios and power descriptions.

I picked out few examples of my favorite art from the stack I bought. WARNING! 80s fashion and hair-cuts ahoy!




Wave back at Devil Dinosaur!

Skalja got us started in her Spider-Butt post, with some of Peter's more...interesting 80s fashion choices. But when I think of bad 80s fashion, rendered oh so lovingly, my thoughts immediately turn to...

Glitter Graphics - http://www.sparklee.com

And there will be more, oh yes, there will be more once I get into my archive discs. But for now, a little something I found in Marvel Fanfare #38 when I was looking for my butt shot week posts.

Ali and Rogue have a night on the town! )

From Sandman #20, "Facade" from the Dream Country arc.


It was so hard to pick a single moment, but this, for the last panel alone, remains my favourite.

In a couple of other threads, we discussed the potential of a conflict between Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy. They're both mystically connected to the Earth Mother. That's an aspect of Diana that hasn't been touched on in a while, so we'll revisit a story from the classic Perez run.

Perez used the classic Greek myths heavily during his Wonder Woman run. One myth he used tied in so perfectly to Diana's origins one would think Marston had to have had it in mind when he created her, except... He never mentioned a connection to Pandora.

Like many classic mythological figures, Pandora's stories have a lot of contradictions as the myths were modified over time. The version we're most familiar with is the woman molded from clay, gifted by the gods, and sent to Earth with a box... Or was it a jar?

However, an earlier version of the Pandora myth had her a nature goddess ("Pandora" translates to "all-giving") who embodied the fertility of the Earth, the giver of fruits and grains.

So, which version of the myths, in this series, was the true one? The answer, in true Perez fashion: Both.


And doesn't she look very... familiar?
