Jables Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 So this poll has spawned from discussing Tulip in Preacher: something of a postergirl for Vertigo(the Colossus that stands astride true mainstream & indie) independant women. I personally feel Preacher as a story could have done without her bullshit front of forced machismo, especially when she still endeavoured to be percieved as a 'girly-girl', yet raked Jesse over coals whenever chivalry took the day. Another example(again, Vertigo) is Dizzy Cordova of 100 Bullets. A hood rat through-and through, she came across as not so much tough, but ready to do whatever needs to be done/unafraid of getting her hands dirty. I'm ashamed to say that in mainstream comics the best example/most interaction I've had with a female character is She Hulk. Nick should hopefully be able to discuss Spiderwoman or something, but She Hulk is effectively the fifth Sex & the City hag. Also recall that I just Finished the first Alias collection- Jessica Jones is another character who puts on a tough front, but is infact all ribbons & Justin Timberlake underneath(points for liking it rough & Cage-y though). Dr G will prove invaluable for indie knowledge here- you were a fan of that Strangers in Paradise right? My impression of that is that it's one big chick book.
