I sense an ass-kicking coming up soon.

Yeah, me too...:)

I'm really digging having a female superhero who isn't merely a plot device or a 13 year-old boy's fantasy.

American Woman is not a kindergarten teacher either! ;)

Damn straight!!!

What does the rest of her costume look like? I think we need a cheesecake pin-up show down! A superheroine cannot go very long without a whole fan art pin-up book of her own.

American Woman is a babe.  I'd let her mangle me with those gloves.   

by L.S.Erhardt on 4/9/2012 @ 8:06pm
I'd like to see her mangle anyone who ogles.
I really want to see a female hero who isn't sexualized for anyone's enjoyment (other than her own).

@ Chris - I think you see the majority of her awesome costume next week (her costume was designed by the author, Megan, BTW, I'm not rad enough to do that. I just don't have knowledge of what makes a good Women's boot). I've been drawing Star for four or five years, and she has yet to pose for cheesecake pin-ups. I'm sure she's flattered, but far too busy to bother with that  sort of stuff! ;)

@NiN, She's not a nun, either, and mangling is so uncivilized. Perhaps a quick elbow to the gut is all you really need? ;)

@Thorax, sigh, indeed....;)

I've never wanted to be an over the shoulder seat belt before.   hellooooooooo nurse!

She drives a manual. No biggie. Lots of women like manual transmissions. Manual transmissions typically result in improved fuel economy.
I also notice she is driving apparently a VW Beetle. An imported vehicle from Germany.

Clearly, AW is making two very powerful attacks on being "American". She's driving an import. But not just that, it's a fuel-saving import. Those are two things a true, red-blooded 'Murican woman would never do.

Only possible reason for the discrepancy is that she's a double agent for the eastern European socialist state of Fredoikizan.

Very astute readership! Impressed! Most Impressed!!!

First off, everything is by design. Nothing is an accident. The Beetle is on purpose.

Plus, What's more American than popularity? AW would definitely need to a popular car. The Beetle is an icon. And I have honestly not found a contemporary American car that is as fun to draw. Blame Detroit.

What would you chose as a high-performance car that a  American Woman would look good behind? And Star can really drive, so it had to be something that could say, win the LeMans or a rally race and excel at commuting 80 miles a day?...Enter the TDI. (Hers is not stock either, it's...altered.)

Actually the VW Beetle TDI is built in Mexico. Passing off an immigrant/import as an American? That is America, right?  Plus, that's what the paint job is for. And it gets something around 47MPG last we checked!

Great eyes, N-S!

North American Woman!

I think that NS wants to see her driving a Ford Excursion

Other cars will appear in the series. And for each character there is a perfect matching mode of transport...(I was always partial to the early GMC Suburbans).

by CaptainBritton on 4/10/2012 @ 5:40pm
I was just informed, 49MPG on the last fill up...So awesome.
