I’d buy this book.
DC Ladies the 2
Phantasm, Poison Ivy (Arkham Asylum), Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Manhunter, Vixen
A page of original Michael Gaydos art from Manhunter #34 from the collection of huntresstheitalianmafiaprincess. This is pretty much a dream page for me with Huntress, Lady Blackhawk and Kate all on the same page together. I think Helena even wore the belly covered outfit so Kate wouldn’t snicker at the impracticality of the other costume. :)
(As I was considering all the wonderful art Erica has commissioned or original pages she has in her art collection, I had this image pop up in my head of what a visit to her house would be like. I think I would be like George Costanza on that one episode of “Seinfeld” where there was a fire in the kitchen and he ran over kids and women to get to the door. I can see Erica greeting me at the door and me pushing her out of the way, knocking over her kid and me screaming “WHERE’S THE ART? MUST SEE THE ART!” LOL)
Kate Spencer/Manhunter by Thom Chiarmonte of Third Rail Design Lab. Tumblr here.
Kate Spencer/Manhunter by Joe Benetiz.
Kate wears one of the most sensible superhero outfits ever. Nothing loose, no 15 million pouches all over her body, no loose hanging belt or sash. Armor where a real fighter would need it most, protecting her vulnerable neck, shoulders, arms and hands she punches with. No zipper unzipped down to her navel. The only bare skin is where she needs to keep up a good flow of oxygen. And hair in a ponytail. There’s no female fighter/martial artist in the world who lets her hair hang loose in combat.
So, to sum up. Pretty much everything you WON’T see in a costume in the new DCNu.
Now that my giddy soccer-posting frenzy has slowed (at least temporarily), let me just go back to talking about people I think I’m going to end up missing in the DCNu.
This Birds of Prey pic gets bonus points for including Misfit, Manhunter, Vixen, Barda and Hawkgirl!
(Why is Barda holding a cosmic cricket bat though?)
One of the best Manhunter covers ever… Here’s another Kate I miss!
Kate Spencer Manhunter by Joe Benitez for a commission
Kate smoking a cigarette and holding a shotgun. Does it get any more badass? She’s like the James Dean of superheroing.
It’s not that I don’t love Donna Troy because if you follow me, you know I do. But Kate… alas poor Kate… she really needs some lovin’!
Not trying to influence the vote or anything… nope, not me.
By tumblr’s very own DuskFlare (http://duskflare.deviantart.com), Batwoman says get out the vote today for Kate Spencer!!
Donna Troy vs. Kate “Manhunter” Spencer. Voting is open until 8pm EST. Remember it’s all about the attitude, not physical prowess.
Hmmm the vote is actually closer than I expected right now. Get out the vote no matter which one is your favorite!
