The Women of DC Comics by AdamWithers The Women of DC Comics by AdamWithers
This was a massive undertaking; 24"x32", Photoshop color over inks/pencils. The Black & White piece was finished early in 2006 for a Gallery show Comfort Love and I shared, and the color was done that summer.

This piece could be seen as the Women of DC Comics the month before Infinite Crisis hit, since many of them have been removed/killed/drastically altered since then. It's heavily influenced by, and a sort of tribute to, my personal Artistic hero, Adam Hughes. The man has done more to drive my art than any other single person, and continues to inspire with each piece he produces.

The characters included here are (L to R): Back Row-- Stargirl, Hawkgirl, Fire, Starfire, Supergirl, Wonder Girl, Jade, & Raven. Front Row-- Catwoman, Batgirl, Huntress, Black Canary, Oracle, Zatanna, Mary Marvel, Donna Troy, Power Girl and Wonder Woman.

This needs some Ice (Especially since Fire is included here!), Vixen, Aquagirl, Kid Flash (Iris West), Artemis (Not an Amazon an Archer one!) And Miss Martian - and this would be a complete line-up!...

If you note the date this was made, Irey West, Artemis, and Miss Martian didn't yet exist, Ice and Aquagirl were both dead, and Vixen hadn't been given anything significant to do in the comics in decades. Granted, she had a pretty good turn on JLU. I probably could've found a spot for Vixen. You got me with that one. ;)

As in Young Justice Artemis? You'll note by the date posted that this piece was made many years before Young Justice was released. Artemis didn't exist yet, so I couldn't have included her! :D

Ugh, don't remind me. The show nobody wanted is getting a brief YJ cameo and that's supposed to make it all okay? It just makes us all think of what we lost.

Exactly. Theres like... NO WAY to use yj in a teen titans form. Now if they were to use tbe original form it might accually work, but its not.

Is Raven that blue thing in the sky?

Raven's the one at the center of the big blue Raven-shape back there. It's her projecting her soul-self, sort of like how Phoenix has the big, fiery phoenix shape that surrounds her sometimes.

Hmm. Mostly pert' cool, but what's with the dark, exaggerated smile lines that extend over an inch (by comparison) from the mouths of Catwoman, Zatanna, MaryM, Donna, and especially Power Girl? Makes them look like the Joker.

what about CatWoman ? shes not a hero , no matter how you look at it she was meant to be a villain
Reply

AdamWithers Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013  Professional Artist
And Batman was meant to run around with guns murdering bad guys. Things change and you can look at their first appearances or the aggregate of their presentation. In the aggregate, Catwoman is more often hero than villain (even if it's more the Robin Hood type anti-hero). ;)

So you're telling me you've never read Catwoman comics, then. Makes sense. But regardless, even if she WERE a villain, that makes one in the entire piece. And one who is arguably among the three most recognized and iconic DC females in history. That buys her a spot, but Giganta still doesn't fit the intention of the piece. :shrug:

I'm so sad that almost HALF of these awesome girls aren't in the "New 52" DC universe, or if they are they've been changed so radically as to be completely different people entirely. Very sad... but phenomenal work. This is how I prefer to remember them.

Thanks. One of things about comics is it's one of the rare media where so many fans love the characters but hate the books themselves! I certainly fall in your camp - and there are many other characters, male and female, that I prefer to remember the way they were.

No I didn't - I'd NEVER forget Ice! But I did this piece a loooong time ago, and she was dead at the time. I felt like it had to represent DC as it stood when I made it, not as I WISH it had been.
