4 pages from Invincible #20 and 2 from Invincible #32 beneath the cut.

And they do get great moments in the filler comics between Seasons.
( Once more unto the breach )
She didn't start out as a main character - although she has definitely become one - but she was present in the series right from issue #1.
She is awesome because she's the catalyst for a great deal of the action that takes place in the first four issues. She asks thoughtful questions, is resourceful and enigmatic, saves the life of main-character-from-the-start Tom Taylor - the son of a writer (missing when the story starts) who wrote a popular series of novels centered around a boy wizard named Tommy Taylor - at least once, and is generally great. She's also a London-dwelling character from a Dickens novel.
- The post might be slightly NSFW due to some of the language in the scans.
- Also, I apologize for the quality of one of the scans which I made myself. I'll get a better-quality one up as soon as I can. For now I just hope that what's going on is clear enough to be understood.
( Lizzie is someone who certainly knows how to make an entrance. )
Long story short: Lizzie is a fascinating character. She's important to the story of The Unwritten, and Mike Carey and Peter Gross are clearly willing to spend time and effort on her, which is awesome by itself. I can't wait to get the third trade in

Anya Corazon, is the half Mexican and half Puerto Rican 15 year old seconded by the super secret Spider Society (try saying that three times fast) to act as their agent in the fight against the evil Sisterhood of the Wasp. And despite this daft origin, she has risen above it to be awesome all over the place and shortly in her own
6 and a bit pages from Amazing Fantasy #6.
( In which Anya has something to say about legacy costumes. )
7 pages from the fourth volume, Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together.
( hand me a weapon while you're in there, would you? )
From Brian K. Vaughan's Y: The Last Man, in which there are more than a few awesome female characters, there's Agent 355. Introduced as the bodyguard of Yorick, the last male left alive on the planet, she soon became one of the central characters of the series.
( Oh, yes - BAMF. )
At the request of Jazzypom, here's Kate Kildare's contribution to Awesome New Female Character Week. You might know her from her recent stint in Uncanny X-Men, where she was hired to represent the X-men (the Astonishing X-men shared a publicist with Captain America, but there's no news on what's happened to her.)
Kate came from The Order where she was ( introduced to the title in #2. )
But who is Kate Kildare? ( #5 goes into her backstory )
If you haven't already, go out and buy The Next Right Thing. I swear, it is the best Marvel team book published in the last five years. And I say that as a man who is reading Hickman's Fantastic Four.
This one is dedicated to Tara Chace aka Tracy Carlisle of Greg Rucka's Queen and Country. You can buy the definitive editions for a decent price on Amazon and they're big meaty tomes, collecting up to a dozen issues in each one.
Queen and Country is about the bureaucracy of the international spy game, or "What would the Bond films be like if Moneypenny and M were the stars?"
Tara Chace is a Minder, working for Special Ops in the Secret Intelligence Services for Her Majesty's Government. Minders go out and do all of the dangerous, secret stuff, but also all of the mundane, drudgery of paperwork in a windowless office.
( This first set is from Operation Blackwall (Queen and Country #15) )
Two ops down the line and we get to ( Operation Dandelion )
If you want to find out Mwama's story, either buy the definitive volume 2 or just watch it in Sandbaggers, a TV adaptation based on Queen and Country written by a former naval officer turned television writer from the future.
Blingee is welcomed! (But not essential!)
The usual Thursday rules apply:
Post your favorite fanart!
Post fanart, recs and links to your favorite artists, or just whatever you really like! The only requirement is you have to be able to credit the artist, and provide a link if available. If you can't source it, please don't post it. Everything else is free game, fans!
And make sure to keep NSFW art behind a link with a warning.
And of course, your own fanart is welcome, too!
But Fan-thing Thursday isn't just about fanart, post links to your fanfic or fanvids, or rec your favorites! It's all about fan-thing fun. Though a reminder that Dreamwidth doesn't support embedded videos, so you'll have to just post a link.
Want a place to showcase fanart you drew yourself? Stay tuned next week to our sister comm!
Her power-set is quite fun and I like her. There's also a good ongoing story with her relationship with Robot and his battle to stop her from de-aging.
( From Invincible 25 )
I need to re-read my Invincible books.
Also, if you will be triggered by 9-11 and women being punched in the face, don't look at this.
