My lineup for an All Female JUSTICE LEAGUE as suggested by Benito Cereno a while back. Originally I had Barda instead of Supergirl but then thought better of it and switched them out. #JusticeLeague

Hell yes except less Barda is never the right decision

anne-ching asked: Is it OK to ask if you've been seeing my messages? I just reblogged my Google Doc post.

Hello! I actually hadn’t seen your messages until just now because I was out of town this weekend and I haven’t been on my computer since Thursday night. I look forward to checking out the new work on your story!

[edit: Whoops, meant to answer this privately. Sorry about that.]

Over the last few months, I’ve seen folks start memes for Witchsonas, Elfsonas, Mersonas and Dragonsonas - drawings by the artist of the artist as all sorts of fanciful mythical creatures. 
Well, I’d like to start one of my own. I’d like to start a parade of … SANDWICHSONAS.
Here I am … as a burger.

Whoa, dang

We put out calendars in 2012, and so many people have asked for more!  I didn’t have time to put out a flip-book type calendar, so I thought I would make a poster one!  In the style of those tea towel calendars.  If I can source some tea towels, I’ll do that.  But a poster is good too!  I will let you know when it is in the shop!
I made Red Riding Hood sketches along these lines a while ago, and I like Dorito Person Red Riding Hood.
Just a little dorito, going to Grandma’s house.

Benito Cereno recently tasked folks with putting together an all-female Justice League roster. Well, I actually did that back in November of last year, so here it is again! 
Really into Beautia Sivana becoming a prominent character …
calamityjon:

It’s dumb nerd fantasy casting time again!
Back when Brian Wood was announced as the author of a book featuring an all-female X-Men roster, the news was met with a sizable contingent of contrarians who fussed about the gender-inaccuracy of the name. Personally, I thought that the debate underlined the problem with the name “X-Men” itself, that it’s an archaic structuring of an unnecessarily gendered form which is no longer accurate or appropriate for the people and personalities it represents. BUT - all of that being said, why can’t the X-Men be all women? What is this, the Dark Ages?
Anyway, the idea appealed to me, and I jotted down some ideas for what I’d like to have seen in an all-female Justice League, at the time. Just found the notes while cleaning up my desktop, here’s what I had, a team divided into Veterans and New Recruits…
The Vets / Trinity:
Wonder Woman • Big Barda • Power Girl
I’m bored with the usual “Big Three” arrangement at DC, so I wanted to create a new dynamic for its premiere trinity; three strong, distinct characters with very different backgrounds who nonetheless share a lot in common (an orphan, a zealot and a princess – warriors, every one of them). Besides raw power and experience, they also bring connections with almost every arm of the DC Universe from the Fourth World to JSA to the Amazons, the Titans, the Superman Family, et al. Bound to have personality conflicts, but professional enough to work through them, three natural leaders who’d struggle to craft nuanced roles as the team co-chairs. Likewise, this is a good opportunity to add some nuance to the personalities of some of DC’s highest profile female characters…
The Core Team:
Zatanna 
A thirty-something crimefighter who’s been doing this since she was a teenager, still trying to define herself in the shadow of her famous father and to come back after having been lost in the wilderness for a few years. World-weary but determined…
Bulleteer
A novice superhero who has lost everything and needs the League to give her some sense of purpose. The invulnerable Leaguer who’s nonetheless the most likely to break, she’s punching her way through her trauma.
Fire
Willful and fiercely independent, a former socialite and troublemaker turned secret agent and superhero. She’s been through the shredder and is desperate to prove to herself that she has what it takes to be a world-class hero. She’s her own harshest critic. 
Beautia Sivana
Empress of Venus and the daughter of the world’s wickedest scientist, Beautia possesses her family’s trademark brilliance but is hobbled by her almost-all-consuming loyalty to her father. Her heroism is the most in doubt, and half the team doesn’t yet trust her…
The Recruits:
RazorSharp • Sparx • Anima
Survivors of the Bloodlines event, who never got much of their due. Razorsharp acts in the capacity of Barbara Gordon’s ORACLE persona, managing communications and intelligence for the team. Sparx – an eager heroine from a long line of superheroes – is all-action and enthusiasm. Anima is sullen and withdrawn. The three of them resent being treated by the others as a sorority of Bloodlines victims, and initially resist forming emotional bonds with one another.
Steel/Natasha Irons • Spoiler
I like the idea of taking the Superman- and Batman-related members and making them two of the youngest, most inexperienced members of the team, instead of the stand-out characters everyone else looks to for leadership. Resourceful Natasha and indomitable Stephanie make fast friends and terrific partners and represent the best in the next generation of young heroes.
