Quicksilver
[Pietro Maximoff]


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.

Well, this is going to be brief, but it has to be said. There has been a lot of buzz and a lot of discussion about the former Bruce Jenner's transition to Caitlyn Jenner, and my two cents comes from the fact that the voice actor of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the current Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, Drake Bell, is himself the subject of controversy on account of a tweet he put out saying that he'll still call Caitlyn "Bruce."

Really? Really? While I am aware that transphobia is a major problem in our society, I still can't help but feel disappointed that Bell would go that low, mostly because he's voicing my all-time favorite comic book superhero and somewhat fictional role model. Ok, so he's only voicing one incarnation of Spider-Man, and there are plenty of others out there, and what the actor says or does in real life has no reflection upon the character (s)he portrays, but it still disappoints me. He's since deleted that tweet, but in this day and age with screen-capture so widely available, just because you delete something you posted online doesn't mean someone else hasn't already preserved it on his or her computer somehow.

So yes, I am disappointed. I might not care that much for her family's TV show, but goddammit, have some respect for the struggle she went through to be true to herself and who she really was. Or to boil it down in simpler terms, "Is it really so hard not to be a douchebag?"

What is the Comic Character of the Month?


OMG MOAR POEMS! 

Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, ImpulsiveSpidercide chooses 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 we prefer that submissions be put in the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. 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!)

Sadly, ImpulsiveSpidercide has been too ill to write his usual contribution to this feature.  He had the adult chicken pox.  I hope he feels better.

So, instead, I (SavvyRed) will do my best!

I've got too much work to do. 

I have to admit I don't know much about the villain Mad Hatter from the Batman comics.  He doesn't seem to be a very popular character.  It is probably because he is so similar to the Joker, a villain who has a bigger following and also a more interesting personality.

Madness is a common theme in the world of Batman, particularly modern versions.  Batman is the Theseus of the DC Universe, the man with the money and the mind.  With a focus on brains rather than brawn, his enemies are often malevolent geniuses or the vengeful victims of circumstance.

The Mad Hatter is one of Batman's most savagely technological villains.  One aspect of his persona that is similar to Batman is the dependence on gadgets and personalized inventions to wage war against his nemeses.  Batman and the Mad Hatter are rather helpless without their intelliects and their utilities, and they both have a certain amount of angst.  But the difference is that Batman has a code of honor and a rational (though painful) sense of reality.  Jervis seems to be severely and legitimately mentally ill and reflects the stigmatic stereotype that people suffering from psychiatric disorders are insane and dangerous.  Some of his personality quirks can be found in Abnormal Psychology textbooks.  For example, the repetition of certain words and phrases is a real symptom of Disorganaized Thought.

Interesting fact:

--> The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland was inspired by the commonality of mentally ill hatmakers in late Victorian Britain.  The process of making hats required mercury, and no one had any idea that mercury was poisoning people until much later.
