Hard Choices / HARD CHOICES: PAM GRIER OR IMAN?
« on: August 20, 2006, 01:27:46 pm »
Ha!  Went old school with this one!  Two of the most beautiful women of all time, no doubt. One, the ultimate kick ass female black superhero.  The other, ideal human personification of Storm. 

But you can only choose one....

Yeah it always bugged me that a lot of times she wasn't really portrayed with African features. I mean I couldn't really go as hard in that direction, as she is already an established character, and if you change too much people bug out, but I'm glad a lot of people have been commenting positively about her having a more African look.

I look at a lot of things in portraying ethnicity in my characters. Sometimes you need to make generalisations, and find the stereotypical to acheive what you want. With Storm she's got the funky blue cat's eyes, weird eyebrows, and straight white hair working against anything recognizably african, so I decided to work on the bone structure of the rest of the face, accentuate her cheekbones, shape of forehead, also give her fuller lips, and not go so thin and pointy on her nose. I also look at body shape, not to sound crass, but stuff like give her a bit of booty (a lot of people laughed at the "round booty" notes I made on a district X character design sketch I did, but to me, what type of body shape a character has can be indicative of ethnicity, and is important). Anyway add all that to Storm's previous portrayals, personal ref, and various parts of celebs (contributing to the hudlin 100 helped me a lot ;D), and that's my Storm.

Yardin the man, y'all.

I don't understand something. If RH's version of the Panther is a problem and its internal continuity flawed, and RH won't answer (or the answer is 'snide' - code for he didn't give me the answer I wanted), then why go from board to board saying how bad it is??? ???

I don't understand. Drop the book. Find a book you like. Is the hate this strong? What is it? Racism? Does aquaman get all this controversy? Or is it just because the hero is black. Priest tried to overcome the character's blackness by using Ross and it didn't work so I don't think Priest is coming back. (Judging by some of the CBR replies, some of those guys are sick in the head).

I can no longer afford to collect comics (the rate is now 1US to Ja 66), and when I did, I collected marvel and dc and dropped titles, or runs of titles I didn't like.I just can't understand. RH is clearly not giving you what you want, and he is not saying what you want to hear so...find something else to read and ENJOY!

Can someone explain ths mentality to me? I just don't understand.

Welcome Marlon!  Where do you hail from?

Actually Thatguy did me just did me a favor.  He made me recount that:

the book is selling well

the book has great reviews

the books has dedicated fans

Of course he knows that too, and it's killing him (why, I don't know).  To resort to saying that my positive reviews don't count because, well, they are just so damn positive, is pretty pathetic.

Hell, it was worth it for the redjack post alone.

Oh, and that making history thing is nice too.

So when Priest's numbers weren't good, it did NOT reflect the writing, right?

Nope, because it still gathered critical acclaim and maintained a devoted following. Even ignoring that it was written in a considerably different period for comics in terms of sales, it didn't get half the promotion and hype the current series has gotten.

So all the great reviews that get posted on this site and the letters to Marvel, and posts on this site don't count as acclaim?

Her white roots.

Sorry. I had to say it.

But, yeah, awesome to have you "here," David.

Put your feet up. Have a drink. No lap dances though. This is a family club.

Hey, lap dances is what the Hudlin 100 is for.  Which David is a sterling contributor.

Please notice that all the usual suspects who are so quick to post the Panther's sales numbers each month -- gleefully hoping to chart the title's demise -- didn't bother posting them this month.  They seem to be usually silent too...

After they pick their jaws off the floor, they will say it was just a stunt and that the numbers won't sustain.
