By the way, you passed :).
I’ll try to keep this one short and sweet and under 10,000 words. No guarantees.
As I’ve said here and on Deviant Art, I’ve been seriously thinking about continuing the Blonde Marvel comic strip as an R rated series. There would be no depictions of hardcore sex. No nudity. Sex and nudity would be hinted at (teased) but not shown on panel.
I’m considering this change because of recent and ongoing troubles I’ve had with promoting the comic and selling comics online. I won’t bore you again with the specific problems I’ve had with PayPal, Project Wonderful, Drive Thru Comics and the like. I’ll just sum it up by saying that if my comics were simply about men in tights punching each other’s guts out then I wouldn’t be having these issues. However, since my comics contain graphic depictions of s-e-x, there are far fewer opportunities as far as promotion and sales.
So those older stories that used to be on the site, the ones with graphic depictions of sex, bare tits and ass, as well as male and female genitalia, were removed in anticipation of a kinder, gentler Blonde Marvel series come 2015.
For those of you out there who still would like to read that old stuff, I plan to bundle it up into a PDF for y’all to download at a website not called Drive-Thru Comics.
Note: No firm decisions have been made yet.I’m still mulling over the idea of an R rated comic. I get the sneaking suspicion of late that even if I were to tease the nudity and hint at the sex I’d still be in the same situation I’m in now. I think the above named companies would still view my comics as “adult” and I’d have censored myself for no reason.
Well, I’m coming up on 10,000 words so I’ll wrap it up. Have a nice weekend, America!
…if you consider 2005-2006 a Golden Age. So before I got down to drawing a Blonde Marvel series, I spent a good amount of time sketching, doodling and brainstorming what the character was gonna look like and be about. Here is one of the earliest drawings of The Blonde Marvel. Pencil and marker on Bristol board and colored in Photoshop 7. Professor Ultra? I believe he was supposed to be her mentor, sort of who Commander Marvel represents today. And the Yellow Devil was going to be her arch-nemesis.
A lot about Blonde Marvel has changed from my earlier concept. The flag-based costume for example, which was a major stroke of unoriginality on my part. What hasn’t changed is that I’ve always envisioned her as an older woman with a husband and kids, rather than the typical 20 something single gal. The character was kinda sorta based on Candy Samples and Chesty Morgan, real life women who had big boobs.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this trip down memory lane. We now join the year 2014, already in progress….
I probably should have asked this question back when I had more readers,lol. But the question is still valid.
Many readers prefer their erotic stories to get to the point quickly, where the sex act happens at least 2-4 pages in. They read the comic for the sex and not so much for things like plot and characterization. If the main characters aren’t doing the nasty by the fifth page or thereabouts they tune out and find something else to read.
Other readers prefer erotic stories that allow for things like plot, motivation and logic. They’re turned off by stories where characters who have only just met inexplicably engage in sex. They’re willing to wait for the writer to flesh out the story and make the sexual encounters more plausible. Well, what kind of reader are you? There’s no right or wrong.
