I cannot speak for Ava but Phil Noto is one of my absolute favorite comic artists right now. You can put his name on anything and I’ll pick it up purely because I love his art. Same goes for Kris Anka honestly, and most of the time that also applies to Olivier Coipel.
My Aunt is a violent abuser who literally just attacked my Mother shortly after my Aunt started yelling at me for just existing.
I’m too much of a wreck to make this wholly comprehensive right now, but if you follow me you’ll know that we were unable to find a place to live so we [my Mother and I] had to move in with my Grandmother [who has been letting my Aunt stay here for about 15 years???]
If you follow me you also know that my Aunt is a volatile, violent abuser who has attacked us our entire lives.
Well, about half an hour ago, she started yelling at me after I said that ‘You do realise I can hear you, right’ when she called me a ‘cunt’ as I left the room.
I told my Mother about this as I went back upstairs with the bagel I had been making for her and my Mother went downstairs to make her tea.
My Aunt proceeded to scream at my Mother and then physically attack her as evidenced by a little of the aftermath that I will link to in a gallery. For a short rundown: She shoved my Mother, grabbed her by her shoulders and scratched up her arms, and pulled out a small chunk of my Mother’s hair all while screaming.
Please donate whatever you can and/or share however you can with whomsoever you can. We need money for moving vans [remarkably expensive], 6 weeks deposit on a new place, first month’s utilities for the new place, and first month’s rent for the new place.
We need to leave.
—Things I can add on Tumblr include:
- I’m queer. I’m very very queer. This is an Orthodox household. You do the math.
- This is a very very Jewish Zionist household. My Mother and I are Anti-Zionist. You, again, do the math.
One of the runners of this blog (and the creator), Ava, is in a truly horrific position and needs help. If you can help or share this post that’d be beyond incredible of you.
Okay first let me state that this is my (Joan) personal opinion. I don’t speak for the other runner of this blog, Ava, or anyone else.
Adam Hughes art does in fact bother me. On a lot of his lady heroes he draws very defined camel toes and other equally bothersome things. The proportions are much more realistic than Greg Land’s art, that’s true, but that isn’t the only problem with Land’s art. Just like Land I feel that Hughes draws women as sex objects rather than heroes a lot and tries to make how sexy the are the focus point and that’s not something I’m entirely comfortable with. Art like that has a time and place obviously but for me that place is not in the comics I want to read. I’m not interested in how sexy female superheroes can be that’s not why I read comics and most of the time it’s not just sexy poses in Adam Hughes art it’s also nipples visible through their costumes, defined camel toes, and other things I find that make me uncomfortable. I do find it sexist and demeaning sometimes, but I wouldn’t put him on the same level of Greg Land considering Land is well known for tracing porn.
That’s the best answer I can give.
I honestly don’t know how this hasn’t made it up here yet. From Ultimate Fantastic Four #23
I love the completely dead eye expression, not to mention the sex doll mouths.
Yeah Greg Land will do that. If you can’t read his stuff then you’re not gonna want to pick up the new Spider-Woman solo either.
Honestly I couldn’t tell them much apart. In the 70s flashback of those issues I had to keep straight who had glasses, no glasses and mustache, and finally no glasses and no mustache. They all had the same identical hairstyle and the usual Greg Land go-to face shape. BUT that being said we of course recognize that other artists also have a same-face problem and many more who don’t put emphasis on being able to tell poc males apart which is exceptionally shitty.
HOWEVER this blog encourages you to like what you like. We have absolutely no issue with fans of Greg Land, it’s just not our cup of tea. Like what you like and don’t let anyone else’s opinions get you down. Who cares what strangers on the internet think of an artist you like, you know?
