A really fine mini-storyline here . . . deserves 5+ stars. However the execution of the art is less than 5 stars . . . perhaps 3+. Love it when a superheroine is helpless, yet fully conscious in the arms and hands of a captor. The greatest thing happens when the story and the art are both 5 stars.
To bobko -
I'm glad you love it, Bob. . . . this site exists to give all its visitors visual pleasure. However, not all viewers have the same response to every scene. . . . if they did the rating system would always be unanimous . . . same number of stars given to every scene. When I say the art is less than 5 stars, I am comparing it to the very best Wonder Woman art ever to appear in DC comics . . when she is at her very best . . . which admittedly is not 100 percent of the time . . . not at all. But compared to the best of WW ever to appear in DC, this private art is simply not equal to it. That's all I mean. As I already said, the mini-storyline is 5 stars for me. . . it's simply the art that could be a tad better . . . just a tad, but then a tad is a tad as I see it. Different strokes for different folks, I always say.
Hi paul - no I'm just curious what kind of art style you're in to mainly. While I know many other disagree, I've always found the WW from the JL animated series to be "attractive", therefore this art style too - since it's very cartoony. I'm just interested in hearing what you deem as "sexy art"
I am listing below several urls from sleepycomics.com which show you some of the Wonder Woman art I consider to be 5 stars. Not all are from DC either . . . some are original art which I also consider outstanding. Here are the urls:
I see what you mean . . . it is in the same style. But what I especially liked about the Sue Storm pics was frame 1 and 2 on page 1 . . . the arm carry pics. They were a cut above the rest of the pics, for some reason, perhaps plain luck, or maybe more care and skill applied there. Whatever . . . those two pics were outstanding to me and merited 5 stars. It's not a matter of style as much as care . . . though in truth, I do not like "cartoony" art nearly as much as "realistic" art. Not sure I can fully explain all of this . . . . when I like something, I just do, it's kind of a gut feeling. But 99% of "cartoony" art I can predict I will not enjoy. Red, on the other hand, likes "cartoony art", always has. As I said before "Different strokes for different folks".
Also, I might add: The arm carry pics on page 2 were, to me, less "cartoony" than some of the other frames, particularly the one where she is running. The arm carry pics seem more "realistic" and better illustrated. Again, it's just a gut feeling I have . . . can't fully explain it.
thnx for taking the time to walk me through it though. I know it's hard to explain these things. For example, this scene is almost "Donald-Duck-Like-Cartoony": http://sleepycomics.com/view.php?id=3174&img=6188
Yet it's such an attractive scene for me, cause the girl is so limp and helpless as all the action around her doesn't even snap her out of her nap.
Just the other day I was thinking about why I like certain heroines more than others.
If I had to assemble a top 5 it would be;
Storm (X-Men 90's costume)
It got me thinking..
then I read this great article about what makes wonder woman tick, and there's a lot of truth to that story: http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2011/06/wonder-woman-what-makes-her-tick/
The "Natasha 17" page you referred to is not a bad series of pics for something done in such a "cartoony style". So many full body shots of the sexy girl in a limp arm carry. I guess for me there is "bad cartoony" and "not-so-bad" cartoony in my view of things. This one is not so bad. 3 stars!
