I can see the headline now: "Parents Sue School For Bringing Super Heroine in Latex Suit to Assembly".

So...After four years, American Woman finally starts her second day on the job...AND she's legally parked this time!

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 9:17am
That's a bit clunky for a headline, but I could actually see the TNT leading with a story like this...And it's not latex...It's Enlightener™.

Is that car electric?

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 9:32am
Bio-Diesel...50MPG, and faaaaaast!

wait a minute....  invisible cellphone ?    From the corporation that brought you the invisible wonder jet ?

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 9:38am
Her earrings communicate with HQ, yes.  And that jet is not invisible, it's just Enlightened™. And how the hell did you find out about the jet? That was sooooo classified!

is it a body spray?  a deodorant style roller?  a cream?  a paste?  an atom-thin fantastic four fabric?

I like the idea of getting dressed via stencil

I believe there is a scene in issue 6 (or maybe 7? Anyway, in the future...) that will explain the suit's application/dis-application/etc process, but suffice it to say her outfit is very comfortable. Perhaps we can do a side-bar comic "How American Woman dresses for success!", that will follow "American Woman's hair secrets!" and "Star explains How to drive off-road and look Amazing!"

If any of you want to indenture yourselves as unpaid interns, we'll get to that part of the story even faster! Or figure out how to cash-in to do the strip full-time and we'll hire people as barely paid-interns!

guest strips?

by NineInchNachos on 6/21/2012 @ 11:35am
can you get pulled over for talking into your earring while driving?

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 11:56am
No, not guest strips (are you kidding? with our high editorial standards?!? Even most of my work isn't fit to print in this book, hopefully),

No, I need old-school "bullpen" folks, or rookies who want to learn "how-to-draw comics the slow, deliberate, MotherFather way".

Pencilers, Inkers, scanners, kid-sitters, colorists, meal-makers, house-cleaners, yard-maintainers, Adobe-ers, etc...All working in a friendly, super-charged, party-like atmosphere in my sweatshop in the basement, me cracking the whip and making sure the it all fits together nice-nice, not unlike a comic-book Chihuly!...You know, very rewarding work!

So apparently AW works for the City of Seattle?
It's a logical conclusion since that phone voice seems to be coming from the uppermost floors of the Seattle City Hall...

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 7:04pm
That skyline does look like our northern neighbor, but Subpopulis exists in it's own Universe...One not unlike our own, but separate.

You sir are as keen as anyone around, I'll give you that. You are clearly Enlightened™!

by L.S.Erhardt on 6/21/2012 @ 7:05pm
Hey, so why doesn't AW show up on the Feed main page or in the "recent chatter" area?
(speaking of being keen, right?)

by L.S.Erhardt on 6/21/2012 @ 7:12pm
I'm interested in what ways the AW universe differs from our own.

by CaptainBritton on 6/21/2012 @ 7:47pm
For one,  this Universe has a Big Foot  that talks, drives a getaway van, and is a baseball fan...(There is a new comic being launched very soon that will explore the Universe more intimately. Check the comics pages and stay tuned!)

Kevin assured me he'd work on the feed issue...Until then enjoy your own private viewing...:)

Work your magic Kevin!  (see my fb post)

There's nothing wrong with rotoscoping.

by CaptainBritton on 6/22/2012 @ 12:43pm
The figures are never rotoscoped. There are other instances I follow Wally Wood's advice. "Never draw what you can trace, never trace what you can cut out."
