Hey! Obviously there was a bit of confusion initially over the story that inspired this page. So, please enjoy this updated version! -Moss
Hey hey, good friends! Before we get into the fun and games of today’s page, I want to let you know that later this week Sohmer, Lar, Will and myself will once again venture west through time. This time we are headed to Calgary for the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo! We will be there at Booth #725/825 with all the Gutters books, shirts and gab that you can shake a stick at! So do stop by and say hello if you’re in the area!
Now, as for today’s page, I can’t say that I’ve been reading Batwoman recently. In fact, I have to say I haven’t been reading Batwoman, ever. But, I know that those who love it, love it a lot.
My take on the impending Sawyer V. Kane court case to decide custody of Jaime (who I assume is a child) is that it’s an interesting development in these characters lives. But, what I’m mostly thinking is when will we stop putting “gay” in front of everything Batwoman does?
I have nothing against same-sex relationships, people, marriages, etc. To me, it doesn’t matter if a it’s a man and woman, or woman and woman, or man and man who are contesting custody over a child. It’s not “gay” child custody. It’s just child custody. Kinda the same way that if Batwoman eats a burrito, it doesn’t need to be a “gay” burrito. It’s just a burrito.
Maybe that’s idealistic and an over-simplification of a complex issue. But it seems the older I get, the simpler I get.
Today’s comic is on the docket thanks to Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
Have a good start to the week, friends! See you back here Friday!
