Fangirls, I haven’t been to comic shop in about a month, which really stinks. But it also means that I don’t have the most recent Harley Quinn issue to review for you, so today it’s being substituted with Harley Quinn and Powergirl issues 1-3. I’m going to a shop at the end of the week for a Pre SPX party, so I’ll be able to pick up the current stuff then, but until then we’re sticking with HQ & PG.
Fangirls, I know we’ve discussed the importance of having female role models in the nerd related media before. Today I would like to talk about body type representation, because it’s something that can be extremely difficult to find for someone of my size.
I know the holidays are over, but we can enjoy Harley’s cheer for just a bit longer, can’t we?
Wow, it’s hard to believe that Harley Quinn has been coming out for a year already! And since it’s been such a great year, HQ Annual #1 is a “rub n smell” spectacular! Apparently the title “scratch n sniff” is licensed, so this scenticular issue had to have a different way to say the same thing.
I love Harley Quinn. That’s really all there is to it.
When I first saw Power Girl, I was disgusted. She looks like the epitome of fan service: giant boobs and minimal clothing. But back at Boston Comic Con, in the Q & A session with Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, a question came up about her. After they answered it, they said something that really stuck with me. “It’s just the way she’s built. She’s a character like any other, and deserves to be treated that way; she is not her measurements.” So I picked up Power Trip, which features Palmiotti and Conner’s work.
This girl knows how to go on some misadventures, doesn’t she?
