One of the biggest differences that the IDW Jem series has done is change the LOOK of the characters, not just updating them but varying the bodyshapes significantly, and none moreso than that of Stormer.

The original series, designed as it was to sell toys, used the generic bodytype of the doll line. It varied the charatcers, but everyone had the same shape. (One character, who wouldn't have had a doll, was Techrat, was originally intended to be deliberately androgynous, but ended up being definitely male).

The new series has given us Rubenesque Stormer, a more pear-shaped Shana, and a definitely buff Roxy, and it's just been accepted from the get go. How realistic that is, is another story, and this issue looks into it from Stormer's POV

Warning: This issue contains body shaming and fatphobia.

Here's another example of why I think Paul Jenkins is one of the most underrated Spidey writers around.

A while back I posted some scans from Marvel Universe: Millennial Visions, which told alternate realities/futures of various Marvel characters. That one wasn't the only one they published; this one focused on the then-current Marvel Knights Imprint.

The Roman Antonius Axia, tasked by the Emperor Nero to investigate goings on in that place, was in the thick of them.

A monstrosity loomed before him on a field of gore.

Then it resolved into a more pleasing shape- the beckoning spirit of his dead wife.

It was still what it was, though. )

Finally found some time to post this. Sadly, it appears that this series has been cancelled with issue #8 due to low sales. There's been hints on the Facebook page that we might get more if the trades sell well, but yeah, not holding my breath.

Anyways, in this story, DW and friends go to their local Comic-Con! What could possibly go wrong?

Marvel has been teasing this Generations event a while now, complete with a gorgeous Alex Ross image. However, we were given very little information about what exactly it was beyond a celebration of the legacy among various Marvel superheroes. That has now changed.

"I spent about 10 minutes in the pub last night obsessed with the opening of THE WILD STORM by Ellis/Davis-Hunt. The main cover. Lots to unpack, but the element I most admire is the explicit 1-24, showing the length of series. Immediately we have context, meaning, shape and all linking to the cool formalism - as in, chilled. The Watchmen of it.

"And then the first page, which is instant classic as far as I'm concerned. Once again, this is a novel opening, about control and confidence. 9 panel is murderously hard, and - if I had to generalise - artists generally hate it. Davis-Hunt is making it sing here. Tom King with his various collaborators have been bringing it back to centre stage in comics, recently. THE WILD STORM is a similar response to the present over-tired elements in the super-hero mainstream. Let us try control. Let us try comics.

"[...] Generally speaking, the problem facing any writer of superhero comics is finding a way to make this genre feel novel in 2017. I think The Wild Storm nails in." - Kieron Gillen

Posted this last year but I figured with the film coming out tomorrow (the trailer can be viewed here) it might be worth another look.
