Just a little random place to comic chat. Let us know what kinds of comics get your speech bubbles going! ;o

I’m getting into Extremity. The story and artwork are by Daniel Warren Johnson, a freelance illustrator and comic artist based in Chicago. He has done work like: S.H.I.E.L.D. Secret History, and The Ghost Fleet.

If you’re interested, you can check it out. [ LINK ]

More about the comic series. [ LINK ]

And Faith. Which I love so much! [ LINK ]

The best thing to happen to this character was getting out of Harbinger, A.K.A the-stone-age-views of comics. Where Faith was more fat than superhero.

Faith is funny, aware and has moments of genuine issues. She is one of the most legitimate characters I have ever come across in comics. She’s down-to-earth and so are her co-workers and the space she works in. Sometimes, Faith’s personal life alone makes her an incredible superhero, without the use of her persona or powers. I’m also thrilled about the pop culture references throughout. They are well placed.

After losing her parents in an accident, Faith Herbert finds solace in fictional worlds of superheroes and tabletop RPGs. Years later as an adult, she discovers her latent psionic abilities and joins a team called the Renegades, adopting the codename Zephyr. Through her experiences with them, she not only comes into her own as a superhero but a person in general.


What I like best about Faith as a character, is that she doesn't try to be a mantle for women’s issues. It’s not her responsibility to convey any sort of moral principle to readers. Faith is a woman who goes about her life as a woman who happens to be plus-sized. She fights her own battles and feels like a real person in how she chooses to handle situations. The characters and storyline don't push for body positivity. Any reader going through body and self-image awareness can take away their own personal outlook. Which is why it’s so refreshing to read. Faith is more considerate than that and I personally think it’s a stronger message than a surface dynamic.

A comic called Britannia was advertised on Faith and it always looked interesting. Maybe I'll pick it up one day. Here's more information if you're interested. [ LINK ]

I like the idea of buying comics from independent companies because I'm not biased with them. With DC and Marvel I know which ones I like and who I think is better but with independent companies I have no clue what their history is, so I focus more on their stories. My personal favorite right now is Mercy Sparx from Devils Due. She's a demon who is sent from God to arrest his fallen angels in order to receive time off her sentence in limbo.

Ooh, sounds pretty interesting, Libby. I'm always onboard with a demon doing the work of good. They always exceed the divine in their expectations and end up making a mockery of their integrity.

Me too, there are so many fresh ideas and new storyline types.

I've always taken to DC and Dark Horse more when it came to the more established companies. Lately, I've been looking for someone that has an almost H.R. Giger-ish art style with a Post-Apocalyptic subgenre.

Kind of torn on the news about an upcoming Faith movie. Didn't really follow the news and skimmed through the overly negative responses. Apparently, a lot of aggressive SJWs have been using Faith as a mascot for body positivity. Without looking into what the comic is about. The driving force behind the movie concept is absolutely reducing the characters in that regard. As a result, an increasing number of anti-SJW individuals are spreading discouraging reviews to newcomers of the series. What a mess! The comic is pure fun.

Speaking of comic book movies I randomly rewatched Tank Girl the other day
which is...a terrible adaption of a really awesome comic book
but I've always enjoyed the cheeseball movie anyways. xD
It helps that Lori Petty is in it,
but the comic is superior, I need to catch up on the new ones the authors have released recently.

Wow I didn't even know there was a tank girl movie. Movie adaptations aren't always up to par with the source material. I'm excited to see the New Mutants movie. It has been ticking me off so much every time they push the release date back. It originally was supposed to come out this past March but with Infinity War and Deadpool 2, it got pushed back to next February. But now there's the Phoenix movie coming out so it got pushed back even farther.

Charlotte, I love that movie. On the grounds of it being a guilty pleasure. xD Lori Petty did make it more tolerable but growing up and watching Fraggle Rock. The Rippers were embarrassingly less cheesy to me than they were for others. I know, it's pretty dumb! Good fun though. You're right about it being horrible compared to the amazing comic! Here's to cheeseball movies, lol.

Hi NeelaRaboulski. :D If you haven't seen it yet you should. It's a lot of silly fun. I get what you mean when things get pushed back. That used to happen to the Constantine television show before they just decided to cancel it. ;-;
