Ivy's Baby

Doodling after work. 

DC is in the news lately for not letting Batwoman get married to officer Maggie Sawyer. It's not hard to recognize that flat out stinks. 

What else stinks is that in the Nolan trilogy, not once did Batwoman, Poison Ivy, or Harley Quinn make an appearance. I get they "didn't fit into his [realistic] world," but that fact makes me sad nonetheless. Batman is one of the few hero franchises with multiple recognizable female characters - both heroines and villains - and yet we managed to see only one in the three films. (Rachel Dawes doesn't count. She was pretty rad, but she ultimately dies for "the greater good." Uhg.)

As many people have said: we're getting an Ant Man* movie, plus a movie about an armed raccoon (both are Marvel, I know, but bear with me). Yet we can't have a Wonder Woman movie? It's "too complicated"? 

Not cool, universe. 

*I could care less... that is until Simon Pegg was mentioned to star in the eponymous role. Then I was SUPER excited, you have no idea. But with his name being retracted from the role, I regain my "mehh" stance on this movie.

ETA: Really, DC? Really?!


  1. I know I've been to your blog before, but I don't think I've ever left a comment. Nice work here!

  2. @Katia - Thank you! :)

    @Sam - Thank you! That really means a lot coming from an artist of your caliber, Sam!
