  • Thanks for the episode & the review of the Justice Society book. I will pick this book up now. Also keep the rants up as I enjoy it when you speak your mind Lene.

  • Nice first show of the new year, rant and all ;-)

    I gotta say the part about Wonder Woman kinda surprised me. Mostly because I thought Hughes understood that the character's a strong woman and shouldn't be put in that sorta pose if you know anything about her. But considering the first two sentences of his wikipedia entry and some of the other pieces he's apparently done at cons... I figured it was just a knock-off of the old Janet Jackson Rolling Stone cover, which Gen13 spoofed a few years ago. Either way, it's not in the best of taste.

    The other stuff you mentioned sounds good. Great to hear you're getting closer to real demographic stats. (I think women readers of comics are way under-reported to maintain the status quo. Anything to challenge that is welcome in my book.) I'm looking forward to hearing more on Lost Girls. Reminds me of some of the fanfic and such we hear on Look at His Butt. Keep up the good work

  • I always enjoy your podcast although I've discovered that I can't listen to it at work. After listing to your most recent one, I looked up the Emma Frost figurine and it is indeed bad. However, I couldn't find a link for the sketch that mentioned of Wonder Woman. Do you know where I might find this? Thanks and keep up the entertaining work.

  • Re: the thing where when there's three hot women shown in a comic, there's always one who's blonde, one who's brunette, and one who's a redhead. I've always heard this referred to as "Apartment 3-G Diversity," after the long-running (some would say endless) soap opera strip Apartment 3-G, who's three main characters are indeed blonde, brunette, and redhead. I don't know if that's the original example, but it's certainly the most famous.

  • And Adam Hughes and his sculptor are at it again with the Donna Troy statue. Although his sketches suggest it's the sculptor who has a thing for sticking giant, inflatable breasts on the front of slim female figures.
