The link to it isn’t up yet on the Wizards site menu as of this post, but if you guys want to check out what’s going on in the Multiverse in the new flavor column “Uncharted Realms” (the successor to Savor the Flavor), there you go. There’s only two articles so far but looking at this pattern I’m guessing they’re working on stories for all of the M13 Legendaries.

We got a big response to my last piece on sexualization in superhero art, and I’m back today with another look at the same premise: that comics art tells a story, and on a certain level, you can judge it according to how well it tells the story it’s trying to tell.

Still, well worth a read for anyone who wants to understand the idea of story expression through drawing.
