Real Women? Not In The Tenebrian Dominian

Last week's Green Lantern: New Guardians Annual had Star Sapphire Carol Ferris being introduced to a bunch of smugglers in a hive of scum and villainy. This being comics, they all had their code names:

And yeah, the only woman among the crew has a name defined by physical attributes, but at least she owns it (as I believe the phrase goes):

Ouch! That's gotta hurt.

Trouble is, just a couple of pages later we get to see Wide Load walking with Carol:

And instead of a woman proud of her "real hips" we get another generic superhero female whose figure looks pretty much the same as Star Sapphire's.

There's no point in Keith Giffen making note of her hips if Scott Kolins and Andrei Bressan are then going to ignore them.


  1. At first I thought these were rebooted versions of the Star Rovers, but obviously not.

    You have a good point there about the artists clearly ignoring Giffen's directions there, but alas, that's how that cookie crumbles doesn't it?

    Finally, is it me, or does the art by Scott Kollins looks pretty horrible? The first artist seem a bit more decent, which shouldn't be the case in a usually fine artist like Mr. Kollins.

    1. I've liked Kollins' work in the past but yeah, here it looks a little chaotic.

  2. Kolins looks a bit rushed, maybe.

    This looked like an interesting mini, but in the end I didn't preorder it.

    1. Threshold (far as I'm aware) is an ongoing; this was a one-shot to lead into it and, honestly, not really tied to Green Lantern that much.
