Former animation student at Algonquin College, currently embarking on a bit of soul-seeking to figure out what kind of art I'm really called to make. I have a love for sequential art and animated short films.
What you can expect here is an eclectic mixture of illustration, animation, some good music and some silly fan-stuff. Eventually I'll be adding my own work to the mix, although I'm not sure yet what form it'll take. Just bear with me, you'll see some fun stuff.
Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 By George Perez and Marv Wolfman
When I was a kid, I don’t even remember how long ago… I remeber going into my first Musty old comic shop and thumbing through some back issues. I had always loved the Linda Slater Supergirl movie (at the time i was unware how cheezy it was, still has a special Place in my heart though) so when I saw this issue it intruiged me. I bought and I started reading it in my dad’s car. As I read it I remember getting to these pages. And as I read, I thought to myself “THIS… THIS is a hero. THIS is HEROIC” as I read it, I felt a lump in my throat, even at the age of 10 (i think) I knew where this was going. I sobbed when what I knew what happened happened. But all through the encounter and even after i finished reading it I thought to myself “THIS is what a Hero is! This is who I want to emulate. THIS is who i want to be like” Never mind that I was a little boy of 10, who says my role model or favorite Hero has to be male? All I knew was that This person, not only inspired the people in the comic, she inspired me! Her selflessness, and her heroism STILL inspire me today.
I felt the same way when I originally read this, back in the day. This scene elevated Supergirl from A hero to THE personification of hero to me. Batman? Superman? Even Wonder Woman would have to look up to this woman and say “There is heroism.”
