    Stretch from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    I was thinking while reading Carol Clover’s book, Men, Women, and Chainsaws how much of a badass the final girl is in a slasher flick.  And how she is probably does more against greater odds than any significant superhero male or female.  I mean when Wonder Woman fights I dunno, Cheetah or whatever, that’s largely an arms race of powers up against each other, and mortality is rarely on the table.  But the final girl is usually up against a force that is much stronger than her, and beyond that is terrified out of her mind because she’s seen all of her friends, family, and generally all structures that you would point to as possible points of safety—even her home itself, completely get torn apart by this unstoppable force, that seems impervious to anything.  But still you get things like Laurie Strode in Halloween trapped in a closet that her killer is quickly tearing through, fashioning a weapon out of a clothes hanger to jab in his eyes.  What’s cool about the final girl is that she(and it’s almost always she) takes all of the shit that can possibly be thrown at a human being, endures it all, and then overcomes it at the end and is the force for ejecting the slasher from the narrative.  It’s pretty amazing.

    The other cool thing with slasher flicks is that they prove that men will watch and identify with a movie where a woman is the hero.  Which is apparently an impossible idea for the folks over in superhero movies.

    Copra #16 exists — it is HERE! 

    I’ll admit that this was one of the most difficult issues to produce. I basically knew what the story was, what the dialogue lines and general staging would be, but… I didn’t really know until I started to actually work on it. It was very odd. The process probably didn’t help: I wanted to invoke a little bit of Jack Kirby in this chapter (being that Guthie is based on one of his creations). I’ve been running on a Kirby influence in a spontaneous, gut level, get-it-done kind of way, but this time I wanted to try it a little differently.

    I’ve  heard of Jack drawing a page by starting at the top left hand corner and continuing down to the lower right hand corner until the page was complete. The drawing sounded like it was more stream of consciousness and less obviously calculated. The planning was all in Jack’s head.

    So in the spirit of that anecdote, I decided to forego any layouts whatsoever. I also didn’t break up the stages into workload batches the way I usually do. This meant that I woke up with two blank pages staring at me, equipped with only a vague notion of what I wanted to do. By the end of the day, my aim was to have two complete pages, fully colored and ready to scan.

    Wake up, coffee, write, lay out, podcast, pencil, lunch, ink, coffee, walk dog, more ink, more podcasts, dinner, question life choices, stretch legs, more ink, color, pass out, repeat next day.

    Sometimes I nailed it, sometimes I was too wiped out to even erase a page. This issue kicked my ass, but I’m really happy with the results. You’ll like it.

    And of course, it’s about Guthie, whom last we saw crashing and falling through a window in some far off world. Looks like she survived and when you read the issue, you’ll know how.

  7. "Back in the day, Walter would, every once in a while, forget how to draw. Remember?" Louise said.

    “Oh yeah,” Walter agreed. “That still happens occasionally. It’s like, ‘Oh my god, nothing I’m drawing looks any good anymore. My life is over as an artist.’ And what I realized, because I was an editor at the time, and had seen a lot of work go past me, was that when you hit this phase where suddenly your stuff, which looks just like it did yesterday, doesn’t look good to you anymore, it’s because your mind has made a leap. Your brain has gotten farther than your hand has learned to do it yet. But eventually, give it a few weeks, keep it up and you’ve made a leap in your own craft. That was a big help because it was so depressing when you realize you couldn’t draw anymore."

    Incidentally, Wild 7 is about criminals who are recruited to be cops so as to murder other criminals because the rule of law is a sissy lie, grow up! Mochizuki has done variations on the concept for over forty years, but only six volumes’ worth of material have ever been legitimately released in English - by ComicsOne, back in the early ’00s. Most people just remember the anime OVA from 1994-95.
