Lady Avengers

I want.

to cosplay.

all of them.

Allison Brie is Captain America? Do my eyes deceive me??

My sister ran across this and it was like “why is thor not wearing pants?  Why does cap have all of her organs exposed?  Why does iron woman’s armor have boobs for no good reason?”

And so continues the objectifying of women in comics.

(via marsissomarvelouslike-deactivat)

neither are technically ladyvengers, but I’ve been watching some of the xmen cartoons recently, so here’s some genderswapped psylocke and magneto.

Oh white men who draw superhero comics, don’t you realize fighting crime in a swimsuit is the stupidest idea ever?  Not only does it provide zero defense, its going to be cold any time the weather drops below 80 (which is often unless you live in the deep south), and its going to ride up and chafe in all the most unpleasant of ways.  

Not to mention all the shaving that has to happen.  I mean, honestly  I enjoy pants because it means I DON’T have to shave my legs.

And because they’re warm.  and comfortable.  And flexible.  

*sigh* oh, comics, why did I choose to go into such a misogynist field?

As I was printing and getting things ready to stuff envelopes from my kickstarter, I decided to make this a more interesting image (for those of you who requested this as one of your gifts.)  It will also be available as a poster print at my store envy site ->  http://heidiblack.storenvy.com/
(you should totally buy it, as I’ve got an extra 30-some poster tubes I need to use….)

yes yes, I’ve been absent for a while.  Most of it was thanks to getting my artbook in working order (which its done now!)  I’ll try to start up on the answering of questions again soon!

Today’s warmup sketch - finally, I reveal HULK!  
Its kind of irksome how She-Hulk (who is an awesome character in her own right, don’t get me wrong) is still a swimsuit model (kind of literally).  Whoever made her really had never seen women weightlifters/body builders.  But we have a tendency as a (male-dominated) culture (especially in comics) for all women to be slim and petite, or curvy and sexy, even if they’re supposed to be powerhouses.  Its an argument thats shown up again and again.  
Well, its what this whole blog is kind of about.  A bit.

Anyway, I hope to get LadyVengers back up and going, using my warmup sketch time as an excuse to do some (I got so busy over the last several months finishing up my MFA and doing a bunch of cons, but I’m officially a jobless Master of Comics!)

Anonymous asked: Are we ever going to get any more art?

I was about to say “nope, I died,” but someone might take that seriously.

I really should get back to making art, but grad school and conventions took away all my time during the fall, and now I’m pulling very long days doing freelance and looking for any work to pay the bills.  I should maybe open submissions so other people can join in.  Does that sound good?

THE GREAT LOKI GIVEAWAY!

or something like that

In celebration of hitting my kickstarter goal, and as thanks for all of the people who reblogged and shared and helped me, I’m doing a giveaway!  I’m giving away three loki prints - one 13x19 poster, one 8.5x11” print, and one 5.5x8.5” mini-print!  And you can win all three!

How does it work?  Everyone who reblogs this post is entered once!  To be fair and to keep from spamming, you only get one entry.  But every time my kickstarter reaches a stretch goal, another person will win!  This means potentially five different winners, each winning all three of the prints!


And all you have to do is reblog?  Well, I won’t hold you to checking out my artbook, but that would certainly be nice.

The giveaway ends at the same time my kickstarter does:  Monday Dec 17, 2:51pm EST!  That means only five days to get your reblogs in!

Hey all!  If you are interested in winning some loki art, please reblog!  I just hit my second stretch goal, so there will be THREE winners (so far)!  (I will choose them using a random number generator.

I’d say more but I’m pretty sick today, and I’m only functional because I’m high on dayquil.

And this, my friends, is why I am neither an actor nor a video editor.  However, I am an artist, and I do have a kickstarter.

I know you all want to see Loki as a stripper…….
My friend Sarah made an awesome, amazing porn comic!  It is a hilarious, rawdy, raunchy, and body-positive comic about strippers told entirely in rhyme.  A few of you may remember me promoting her kickstarter for this a few months back - well, now its complete, and you can buy your very own copy!  Including stripper loki as a pinup in the back (along with several other guest artist pinups)
If you guys aren’t buying this book, it better be because you’re under 18.
Buy it here —-> http://www.etsy.com/listing/113251884/star-power-a-bawdy-body-positive-comic
(original artwork from the book will also soon be for sale!

Not technically a ladyvenger.  But still for gender equality.

The amazing Cat of Duaecat dressed as the most adorable captain!  I met her at interventioncon this weekend, and Eric, the other half of the duo makes the most amazing Amigurumis, and I bought a loki (my friend bought Thor).  
She did an amazing job with cap, including making her own umbrella

Avengers fall collection: Ironman
wearing a freaking fantastic peplum power pantsuit. In oxblood, which happens to be “the color” for fall this year.
I went with the triangular cutout (rather than a circular one) because Ironman is all about angles.
and gave her Nina Garcia/belongs-in-a-Michael-Kors-ad hair because I thought Ironman should have really amazing hair.

Some iron man inspired ladywear.
