Didn't he draw mega-boobed women before it became an industry standard?


I didn't read much of his stuff, but I do remember that. 




...yes, I was going through puberty at the time.

Hoopla!

He even drew mega-boobed men.

So the target audience is /marsupial/ juggalos.

I think that, unlike Liefeld, juggalos know how feet work.

Having only read the OP, may I suggest checking out "The Tick" on Amazon? Maybe someone has mentioned it already, or maybe, being almost an outright parody, it doesn't quite fit the bill. In any case, I fucking love The Tick so I figured I'd shill it, seeing how it was somewhat relevant to the topic.

I enjoy superhero media, tbf, but i'm just gonna point out that Umbrella Academy is a deconstruction imo of the child superheroes thing, like the X-men Academy: they're all horribly fucked up and awful as adults. it's certainly got its faults - there are about six interesting characters and everybody else is boring - but i like the angle myself.

also, on the note of captain marvel, i have a lot of feelings about arc re: carol getting away from the supreme intelligence and yon-rogg. the gaslighting and "you need us" are classic abuser tactics and she kicks them to the curb like the trash they are when she comes into her own. it's also fundamentally about intense and important relationships between women (Mar-vel/wendy to carol, carol to maria) and that's important to me, at least. we don't get to see that very much.
