Before we get into today’s page, I’d like to mention that somehow when we weren’t paying attention, Convention Season came upon us again!
That’s right, this year’s first outing is the one and only Megacon in the lovely burg of Orlando, FL. Should you be in the area, please do stop by Booth #331 (under Blind Ferret Entertainment) and say hello to Sohmer, Lar, Becker and Randy! The boys will be there all weekend with Gutters books, lanyards, mousepads, hugs and kisses, and I know for a fact they’d love to see you.
Now, on to other earth shattering news: Power Girl has a new costume.
As part of the “Second Wave” of New 52 titles, DC are launchingWorlds Finest which will feature (amongst other characters) the first post-Flashpoint appearance of Power Girl in a redesigned, more modest costume.
I know I’ll be accused of having leacherous ulterior motives, but I have to say, I don’t like it. It seems very plain to me, and takes away some of Power Girl’s appeal.
And again, I don’t mean that the way you think.
Much has been said about Power Girl’s more… ample, attributes over the years, but in spite of that she always wore that uniform proudly and didn’t let that little snicker here or there hold her back. To me that was an important aspect of the character. Maybe they will find a way to make the “new” PG just as fun, but we’ll have to see.
At the very least, they can have her fight magical dinosaurs with machine gun arms like she and Superman did in Power Girl #23. Seriously.
Today’s page was put together by our own Rus Wooten, around the wonderful art of Fabio Redivo:
Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Fabio Redivo developed an interest in comic book art and drawing from a young age. This interest is what drove him to take classes in basic drawing, and later in life, pursue a degree from the University of Fine Arts of São Paulo in Graphic Design. Shortly after earning his degree, Fabio moved to America to further develop his skills at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art.
Subsequent to his graduation from the Kubert School in 2003, the comic book publisher, A Wave Blue World Inc., hired Fabio as a graphic designer and comic artist. His work can be found in their graphic novel, Adrenaline, and in soon to be released, American Terrorist. Through A Wave Blue World, he was invited to work at a Joe Kubert studio, Tell-a-graphics, where he was involved in Joe Kubert projects and PS Magazine for the army and at Archie Comics as an inker.
Currently, Fabio is contracted to the Kubert School as an instructor. In addition to his jobs through A Wave Blue World, he is an active contributor to Punchline, a humor magazine. In his spare time, Fabio experiments with giant, man-eating bugs in his comic creation, The Wagga Squad.
Have a great weekend, my friends! Stop by if you’re in the Megacon area and we’ll see you back here Monday!
