By Allison Senecal — Superhero comic art has evolved at a really impressive rate in recent years...so much so that sometimes it can be a lot to handle. First there’s excitement, obviously, but then that excitement turns into something else...which is why today we’re introducing a new feature, a different way to look at our favorite comic art. Welcome to Thirsty Thursdays, a sporadic examination of (as the kids say) the month’s thirstiest comics.
The Thirstiest Comics of September 2018
Captain America #3 – A Steve and T’challa team-up? *Eyebrow waggle* What do you mean “not like that”? Thanks a lot, Marvel. Still a 💦💦💦💦 out of 5 especially with Yu’s excellent Sad Steve.
Catwoman #3 – The saying is madder than a wet cat, but this month nothing is hotter than a wet cat, and any given month nothing is sexier than Joëlle Jones’s Catwoman. A perfect 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Sleepless #7 – SLEEPLESS IS BACK AND SO ARE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. Easy decision. 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Wonder Woman #54 & #55 – Atalanta has freckles. Diana, Artemis, and all the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall are drawn thick, muscled, and GORGEOUS. The art was juicy in September and this is a peak example. Everyone looks alive and beautiful, and also like they could kick my ass. 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Thor #5 – Christian Ward drawing the Goddesses of Thunder. Christian. Ward. Drawing. The. Goddesses. Of. Thunder. If you don’t know what that means GO BUY AARON’S WHOLE RUN. NOW. 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
West Coast Avengers #2 – Another juicy one. Bless Caselli and Farrell for making the whole team magnetic. Only content we’re getting for either America or Clint so go write letters to these creators and tell them you love it. 💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Justice League Odyssey #1 -- Sejic doing Jessica Cruz and Starfire equals the most breathtaking comic book experience this month. And if you don’t ship them, don’t speak to me. 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Extermination #3 – Extermination has ended up being my sleeper thirst comic every month. Both Jeans. Both Warrens. Classic X-Force. Brisson remembered Cannonball’s Kentucky accent. We’re truly blessed. Larraz and Gracia make everything pop. Hot and dynamic. eXXXtermination. Don’t @ me. 💦💦💦💦💦 out of 5.
Oh and I guess there was Bat-Penis or something this month. Call me when we’re back to full frontal Constantine.
Prep yourselves for October, when I become a walking, talking “Un-Follow Me Now” meme over Shatterstar.
