Everyblonde


I was as surprised as everyone that the Iron Man movie didn't suck. So I'm taken in by the hype and pick up Invincible Iron Man #1 and what do I find? I had to go check the credits to make sure the artist wasn't Greg Land, because the comic seems to feature his popular Everyblonde.

Doesn't matter what comic Greg is drawing, what company it is, if there's a blonde in it, it's her. Black Canry, Sue Richards, Ms. Marvel, Pornface Girl; they are all played by the same girl as far as Greg's concerned.

So I'm left wondering, is this a subtle homage to the king of swipes, or does Salvador Larocca just read the same porn as Greg?

Best line ever.

I haven't read Invincible yet, but maybe they just go through a Marvel stash of porn... like, Joe Quesada dictates or something.

Wasn't Pornface Girl originally part of the Legion of Superheroes during the Jim Shooter run?

Wow. Synchronism.

Before I came here, I read an article about complaints re: the new 'Maxim 100 Hottest Women' and how it is dominated by blondes.

Okay, that's apropos of nothing but it still amuses me that you only seem to see the pornface at Marvel with blonde women. You never see a vacant, empty headed redhead is all I'm saying.
