    Well, I'm not getting around to them anytime soon so... they're up for grabs. Enjoy! You can't have Pack of Feral Clowns Taking Down an Elk, though. I've got the wallspace all picked out for that one.

    Every time we veer off into female "hero" types in the comics and games, I have to think there should be a law that the invented characters should age as real humans do. It can be slower than normal aging, but they should age. This enforced maturity would force artists/designers to remember that within xxx years, the exaggerated physical attributes of some of our favorite eye candy is going to have a major problem with aging/gravity and their uniforms/costumes.

    Now, let's all be mature and quietly visualize Blondie Bumstead at the beach, and Wonder Woman as she goes about business in a realistic, more enlightened, manner after all these years...as Flash and Captain America relax at THEIR favorite "fortress of solitude"... "HiiIIii, Babe...come here oftphudgh? Oops. New teeth..."

    Can you see it yet?

    Actually, Power Girl's, ahem, endowments have been part of the character's make-up since the very beginning. The story (perhaps apocryphal) is that Wally Wood, who designed her, had a plan to gradually increase the size of her breasts with every issue of All-Star Comics just to see at what point DC would notice. They never did (although they did nix the boob window after a few issues).

    When I first saw Wally's work back in the dark ages, I knew I made the right decision when I entered art...

    I don't really read a lot of american comics... But there are quite a few good female manga artists. My favorites are probably Rumiko Takahashi and Yuki Urushibara.

    And trying to think of some more... There's allways Lise Myrne, if comic strip writers count

    A lot of my faves have already been mentioned, but I'm also a fan of Amy Reeder Hadley of Madame Xanadu fame. I recently heard an interview with her and was flabbergasted to learn she only started drawing at all a few years prior to her work on Xanadu-- it boggles my mind to think of the hard work and talent that must have taken!
