October 12th 1985
Woke up this morning to cold apartment. Got up and turned on heat. Warmth flooded through vents like my wrath floods upon the violence and corruption of this city. Put on fuzzy slippers.
Made coffee extra bitter. Tasted like the failure of a drunkard mother who spends all her money on her drug addiction instead of providing for her children. Will steal sugar cubes from Dreiberg next time I visit. He won’t mind.
Saw children playing in streets as I walked around the city, innocent youth soon to be corrupted by the shameless filth of our rotting society. One came up to me and asked why I wear a mask. Told him that my mask was my true face and that I mean to cleanse the foul grime that festers in the heart of the city. Kid started crying. Panicked and walked away. Why does that always happen to me?
Stopped by McDonald’s for lunch. Room was crowded with crooked businessmen trying to bury their guilt in quarter pound cheeseburgers and chocolate shakes.They looked at me with fear in their eyes. I knew that they knew that I knew it was only a disguise. Ordered a burger and left knowing that I would reek havok on their tainted businesses.
Sat on bench outside of McDonald’s to eat burger.
Hurm. Forgot cheese.
I starred at my burger, empty and meaningless like this city, screaming out for its cheese of mercy but left unsatisfied. Walked back inside and informed lady at cash register of mistake. Woman smiled and apologized. It was a fake smile. I glared at her through her false guilt and she frowned and starred at me as if I were crazy.
Maybe I am crazy. Crazy for justice…
AMANDA CONNER FOR THE WIN (interview for bleeding cool)
“There’s been a lot of Controversy in the last few years over whether female superheroes are overly sexualized in comic books. What’s your take on that?
I try to ignore the controversy and just give each character a lot of individuality. For instance, there’s a lot of controversy about Power Girl’s boobs. Frankly, her big boobs are part of her whole persona. People asked me, “Why didn’t you give her smaller boobs?” I said, “Then it’s going to become all about the boobs.” We wanted to acknowledge that she looks the way she looks and move on to the story. She just happens to be a character that has gigantic boobs.
I wouldn’t draw Supergirl the same way, because in my head she’s a teenage girl and she’s not done growing yet. I try and give each individual character their own body type — I’d like to think I do it with male characters too. For instance, I would draw Nightwing leaner and more wiry than Batman”
“She just happens to be a character that has gigantic boobs” EXACTLY! just like some people in real fucking life have big boobs so will some fictional characters! thats fucking diversity not sexism
