what a variety of styles

the scribble fire and smoke among the more
controlled styles made me giggle

I think the design is fun Fun FUN !

I just wish the lady was already decked out
in her superhero gear as if the shoes distracted
her away from her attempt to deal with all the
situations at hand.

That's a little unfair, oceanna. The woman is being portrayed as a super hero.


Thanks for catching that, sammyb.

With the title, I thought she was the villain, shopping for kryptonite shoes after a hard day of crime. I like my way better.

Would you have also cried sexist if I had instead depicted a man neglecting his superhero obligations, because he was too busy watching a sporting event on TV? I doubt it.

The title and the spotlight (common words/images associated with superheroes) are only used to convey that the woman is a super hero. It is in no way comparing her, a fictional character in a fictional world that I have created, to Superman and Batman.

If I truly were claiming that women are inferior, as you are alleging that I am, I never would have portrayed one in the role of a superhero. A role commonly associated with strength and courage.

Ouch. Your black and white comment brings back memories of my chocolate milk submission that began not unsimilar to this, where a poster read far too much into a simple illustration and found it racist. That argument rambled on unproductively for quit a few posts, and I have no desire for that to happen again. So I’m going to try and make this my last post on this subject.

The signal in the background is an obvious distress call. It not only shows that our heroine has done her job before, but has done it so well that the city has come to rely on her. Half-off shoe sales are not a common occurrence. At least I don’t believe they are. This was intended to show a single occurrence not a reoccurring theme. It would be like if my local bookstore had a half-off sale. I’m sure I’d neglect all my responsibilities to spend the day there.

That’s it.

I’d like to thank everyone else for their positive comments.

Have a lovely day.

To clarify, my above post wasn’t claiming that you were turning this racist. I was only saying that I didn’t want it to drag on like it did in the other thread.


And no she’s not meant to be pregnant, millie. :)

Isn't that teh funny!? A woman as a superhero, and her kryptonite, are you ready? No, really, this is a real knee-slapper. Her kryptonite, oh my god, this is sooo funny! Her kryptonite is shopping for shoes!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! THAT IS SO FUNNY 'CAUSE WIMMENS ONLY LIKES TO SHOPS AND SHOPS, AND REALLY? HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES DOES A STOOPID WIMMINS NEED?

I think for the next one, you need to show a female superhero applying mascara in her rear-view mirror while engaged in a high-speed chase. Y'know, a kind of theme of slapping women around with their own silly femininity...
