Mary Jane? by Sephirosu-nechan

Deep in beneath the surface of deviantART lies the heart of comics creation. At the Comic Underground, we strive to bring quality comics to the attention of deviants everywhere. We accept whatever path you choose to follow, whether you create Death Note manga, make detailed drawings of Marvel superheroes, or simply doodle incriminating four panel slides of your boss as an angry badger in your spare time. We are not elitist, and we gladly welcome new comic artists. If you like contests, challenges, features, and surprises, join the Underground today! I guarantee you will not have to take a British subway.

The types of art that we accept are:
:star: Anything related to comics, including . . .

Contests!

Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!

This Month's Character

X-23
[Laura Kinney]

Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, we choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.

All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest; however, please enter all submissions into the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. It takes many hours to filter through the entire gallery, so please enter your work in the right folder so that we can post the feature quicker!

The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section. Everyone who submitted work will have their work in a group feature.

barbara gordon se quita la mascara
[English Translation: barbara gordon takes off the mask]

kaskajo is a pencil-and-paper artist who hails from Spain. He has been a deviantART member for two years and has quite an expansive gallery. His main subject is the female form, specifically those of Marvel and DC comics. You can really see his talent develop and grow through each drawing. If you have a soft spot for the heroines and villainesses of the comic book world, make sure you take a peek at his gallery! here.

... [about Artist Spotlight]

From time to time, we select one member to feature in this section. We include a selection of their work and a short description of them and their artistic style. They will also receive 10 deviant points and one work permanently displayed in the Featured section of our gallery!

DO NOT ASK TO BE FEATURED. If you do, we will not feature you. We choose an artist from the group based mostly on talent. Group activity is also a secondary factor.

A new artist will be chosen at random times.

Gone for Eight Days

Sun Aug 10, 2014, 11:39 PM
Hi guys!  I just wanted to let you know that I will be gone for eight days on a cruise to the Bahamas, starting on the 12th.  I won't have any Internet access (or even a working cellphone), so I will be completely absent for those days.  I'm sorry that I have to leave you guys for a little while, but I am very excited for this vacation!

- S.





:iconcomicunderground:


Hi everyone!  Thank you for your patience on waiting for this Comic Character of the Month due to some personal issues.   You guys have been amazingly supportive, and it has really helped make me feel better.

In addition, I wanted to officially announce that we will no longer be having the same characters for two months in a row.  I tried to do that this time (with Ms. Marvel being for both June and July), but I think people will find it better to have a new character rather than having to wait an extra month to see who's next.

:bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue:

If you don't know what the Comic Character of the Month contest is, here's a quick explanation:

Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, I choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.  All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest, but I'd prefer that submissions be put in the Comic Character of the Month gallery.  The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section.  Everyone who submitted work will have their work in the group feature (which is this!)

:bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue:


II am not my faith.  I am not my gender.
II am not the color of my skin, nor hair.

You can't see that, but I'm here to save

your ass anyway.


Marvel was adamant in announcing their first Muslim superheroine who had her own series.  The comic publisher is a renown for its supposed "diversity," particularly in the various versions of X-men.  Although there are many Marvel superheroes of different faiths and backgrounds, the majority of them are not presented as simply a product of their own differences.  For example, Magneto is a holocaust survivor, and though it make a lot of sense to treat him as a person struggling with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and perhaps having a religious attitude, very little is ever mentioned beyond the fact that it happened.  If he does still identify as Jewish, he is very secular and probably a Reform Jew.   I'm sure that when Magneto was added to Marvel, people did not start raving about having a Jewish character.

Part of the reason why Magneto can be Jewish without anyone really thinking about it or caring is that in the United States (where the majority of Marvel sales go to), Jews are often treated as anyone else.  Yes, there are still bigots out there, but you won't find a bunch of people claiming that the president is Jewish and trying to get him kicked out of office because of it.  No.  Islam is a religion that comes with a huge taboo in the US, and thus it is seen with a strong amount of "other"-ness.  As much as the comic book tries to advertise a certain amount of "normalization," it is a ridiculous oxymoron.  If Kamala was normal, if being Muslim was considered normal, then you wouldn't have to "normalize" her in the first place.

I hope that one day Muslim characters can grace the covers of comic books without being seen as simply "that Muslim girl."  Like Kamala, I am an Asian American girl living in New Jersey.  I know that people can look at you and only see the color of your skin, forgetting that you are an actual human being instead of some kind of ambassador to a country you've never stepped foot in.

Always remember that somewhere out there, people will think of you as the other,.  The important part of you isn't whether you can walk through walls or turn into a cheetah.  No, it will not be your "superpowers" that earn respect from ignorant people.  It will be your humanity; that is your real strength.
