Im a big fan of Andrew Loomis' swork and book as is Steve Rude.  And both knew how to draw women well and sexy without tending toward freakish.

Oh, and as for PG not wearing a Kryptonian symbol, don't forget for 20+ years she wasn't Kryptonian, and given DC's slippery grasp on continuity, it's probably better they leave themselves an "out" for the next time they change her origin, probably by Christmas.




it will turn out that she was, in fact a Skrull all along.

The original reason PG didn't wear the S-shield (which pre-Crisis *wasn't* a Kryptonian symbol) was that she wanted to stand out on her own as a superheroine, and not be confused or compared with her famous cousin, Superman.

Judging from the alternative "chest window" choice Kara made, I gather she found another, erm, "manner" to "stand out"... Undecided

She's such a "bouyant" personality.

It's hard for her not to keep her chin up.

She faces her opposition "chest forward", and "torpedoes" to victory.

Her "assets" speak volumes about her.

I guess one could say that she found a much more *ahem* "classic" symbol, then.

I think Nightwing is right on the money with this.  I've never found any of Ross' faces particularly expressive or interesting (or appealing, aside from maybe his Superman).  He is at his best when his faces are doing that sort of mournful, frowning, anger thing.  His costumes show up the riduculous nature of superhero costumes (that's why his best are armoured or "toga'd" heroes).  He has no gift for portraying action --unless you enjoy the spectacle of falling statues.

To his credit, by copying the faces of models, he at least is giving a sort of variety to the heroes he portrays (now if only he could use more models).  In one way, the plain-ness of his characters is more realistic:  who (besides How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way and 1950s Madison Avenue) says heroes always have to be classically beautiful?

I think the actual Wizard cover is not the worse thing he has done --E2 Superman and Power Girl are related, no?  Why shouldn't they look similar.  Power Girl is a ridiculous character anyway --nothing to get upset about at this late date.  Just sad.

And I think that Wally Wood liked to draw over-endowed women and didn't need a grudge against DC for an excuse, no matter how he may have tried to rationalize it later.
