themaskedanimator asked: Gail, I was wondering if you could help me end a half a decade long quest I have been on? Are there any Portuguese or Portuguese American comic book superheroes/villains? I have searched all over the Internet and have turned up nothing. I was just wondering if you happens to know if any exist.
That’s a great question. But I am completely in the dark.
Anyone more knowledgeable have a thought on this?
"Strong Female Protagonist, written by Brennan Lee Mulligan and drawn byMolly Ostertag, is the perfect superhero comic for people who aren’t really interested in the superhero genre. Actually, it’s also a pretty perfect comic for people who are interested in superheroes. It takes a viciously fascinating look at what it would be like to be a super hero and also be a 20 year old young woman trying to find your place in the world. When it’s showing scenes of super powered brawls and people in costumes, both the writing and art slip perfectly into that style. It’s action packed, dynamic and stylish. When it’s showing scenes of friends going on a road trip, college students in class, or young people going to night clubs and bars, you would almost forget that they’re super humans if they weren’t constantly talking about mind reading, being invulnerable and their former super hero exploits.”
….I’d heard recently about this but reading about it has piqued my curiosity even more.
I mean… Woof. I really don’t know what to say. I’ve been going for years now, and that site is only marginally useful when purchasing tickets. I imagine it will be a bloodbath when these individual badges go on sale.
THR has it right in its article, when it calls the decision “particularly confounding”. I mean, in addition to the price increase, you won’t know what you’re purchasing your badge for in terms of programming and events, because the schedule hasn’t been released and as everyone who’s been knows, the schedule is ever-changing, with amendments and new announcements being made up until the show itself.
What a mess. I am grateful I already have an exhibitor badge and will be attending all the days but wow.
