A few Images 3 - The Best Trilogies Come In Three

I been looking for this picture for sometime now. Maybe a couple months. With no luck. It is an OLD picture. Then I recalled something. I dumped all of my old systems on my NAS a couple years back. Found it in about 5 minutes. WOW, I forget how many OLD pictures and stories I saved on my old systems. Guess it is time to share.  NSFW

And a drawing of the sexiest of all superheroes, Starfire. Powered by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. 

As a Tamaranian, when she's suitably powered up, she can hold her own against Wonder Woman in hand-to-hand combat, and can also drain a Kryptonian's power if they kiss. She's big into kissing.

The blacksmith's assistant.

When something big needs bending or some serious hammering, or some steel stock needs stretching and compressing, or just reshaping, or a heavy transport needs to be held off the ground while he replaces an axle, she's his girl. 

He treats her like his daughter, but all the villagers know that she's actually a Synth. Initially trained to be a new kind of Companion, she was dismissed when she failed to be able to control her strength. Some of the men down at the Pub try to forget that last part, given she drinks with them and acts so much like a human, but the blacksmith protects her like he would his own daughter. 

He might be getting old, but you don't pick a fight with a blacksmith. Or his young assistant with Companion training, who can work steel with nothing but her bare hands. 

(This image and scene inspired a story of village life in some outer rim planet, ala Firefly, but unfortunately it's in my very big pile of started but unfinished stories. )

From Adventure 414 , 1972

The way Supergirl was written and drawn in 1972.  The style of writing was interesting compared to now. Back when comics were escapism of the highest form.

Es muy cierto Shadar, en mi infancia en los 70 y los 80, los comics junto a las novelas de a duro, eran la forma que teníamos para evadirnos de la realidad gris que era la vida en España junto con las dos únicas cadenas de televisiónque había,  bueno con una sola, ya que en el pueblo o en la playa la segunda cadena no se sintonizaba o no llegaba. Ya que no todo era LA MOVIDA, o las películas de Almodóvar. 
Y que conste que no podíamos costear comprar muchísimo comics o comprarlos de continuo. Siempre eran de segunda mano, de ofertas 3 por 25 ptas, o cosas asi. Desordenados. Y siempre inconclusos no sabiendo como continua la historia o la adventura. 
ItAdemás en mi caso y de forma personal, los comics me sirvieron de refugio y tambien de prision del mundo exterior, al encerrarme en ellos para huir del bulling, de las traiciones y de todo el daño que sufria.
Y lo que es peor es eso fue en los años en que uno se va formando como persona, aprende a hacer amigos, lod primeros amores, etc. Y yo por el bulling la gran timidez no aprendí nada de nada de eso. 
No tengo familia, no tengo amigos, no se relacioname en fin que no se lo qué yo soy como ser humano. Y solo me queda mis tebeos y mis libros para poder enfrentarme con el  mundo exterior.
Por eso pido perdón si molesto.
Is very true Shadar, in my childhood in the 70s and 80s, the comics together with the hard novels, were the way we had to evade the gray reality that was life in Spain together with the only two television networks that there was, well, only one, since in the town or on the beach the second channel did not tune in or did not arrive. Since not everything was LA MOVIDA, or Almodóvar's films.
And for the record, we couldn't afford to buy a lot of comics or buy them all the time. They were always second-hand, offers 3 for 25 pesetas, or things like that. Messy. And always unfinished, not knowing how the story or the adventure continues.Also in my case and in a personal way, the comics served me as a refuge and also as a prison from the outside world, by locking myself in them to flee from bulling, betrayals and all the damage I suffered.
And what is worse is that it was in the years in which one is forming as a person, learns to make friends, first loves, etc. And because of the bulling and the great shyness I did not learn anything from any of that.
I don't have a family, I don't have friends, it doesn't relate to me, so I don't know what I am as a human being. And I only have my comics and my books to be able to face the outside world.
I'm sorry if I Disturbe.

I just saw a video and article from Mens and health magazine on Facebook about actress Brie Larson's training for the next Captain Marvel movie.
It is impressive, it seems that it is not from the earth.

Sorry I can't find the link to put it. Since it impresses.

I spent a year and a half in Portugal in the early 70's (on the Azores, thanks to Uncle Sam) and got a pretty good understanding of how repressive the Portuguese dictatorship was, so I probably have at least a vague feel for Spain at the time. Went to Barcelona in 1971 to get motorcycle parts for my Bultaco dirt bike, but only as a tourist. 

I took some of my own refuge in the comics of the era, and was completely entranced by the Supergirl comics of the day, such as the Adventure issue this image came from, but we had to ask buddies to fly in with them from the US when returning from Leave. Once in a while the base PX had comics, and I think I might have bought a few Supergirl issues that way, but nothing was available in the Portuguese economy. They were fighting their equivalent to Vietnam in the African colonies at the time, and things were screwed down pretty tight. 

For me, the pure escapism of that era's comics was wonderful and allowed me to go far away in my thoughts. So I still have a huge amount of nostalgia for that era of comics, but like all things, I try not to get too obsessed with it. There are many other areas of interest too.

But there is still a simple joy that comes when going back to read those issues, all of which I still have. 

Here are a few more images from that time period.

thanks Shadar, in the Spain of the last years of Francoism, of the transition and until the mid-eighties, by tradition comics were divided into boys and girls. So for the children they were "Superman, Batman, Mortadelos, Roberto Alcazar and Pedrin, Inspector Dan". Those of girls were of princesses or those of Esther. Supergirl, wonderwoman aka Marvila, Batgirl, when Novaro stopped publishing in Spain and Bruguera got the publishing rights, he put them in parts (2 or 4 pages) in girl comics; Or they appeared as filler in their male partner's comics, or as a guest.
Except for those of Joyas Ilustradas, and those of marvel published by Ediciones Vertice, with the label for those over 18 years of age. It was like that. And you were seen reading Esther and her world o girl comics was falling on you ......

On the beach I secretly read the comics of my cousins ​​and wanted to have as playmates and classmates CATY THE CAT GIRL or ATLANTA THE GIRL OF TOMORROW.
Look this link
www.internationalhero.co.uk/a/atlanta.htm
www.internationalhero.co.uk/c/catgirl.htm
Those of us who read the Warrior in the mask dreamed of being the crew of the Pirate Captain's ship. now I'll put a link to a pinup of her.
A question does not give an air to the wonder woman, that if with more clothes. Here the censorship towards lowering skirts and raising necklines, among other things.

Esto lo he descubierto, y parecia real. Pero lamentablemente era una inocentada o como se dice en english  una  april foot.
Ojala, fuera real como las cintas de correr antigravedad Alter g.
Ya pensaba en ponerla en mi lista de regalos imposibles a pedir a los reyes magos, junto con el vuelo en gravedad cero, una cita con una superheroine, montarme en la atracción del rotor, volar o levitar.
This I have discovered, and it seemed real. But unfortunately it was an innocent or as they say in English an april foot.
I wish it was real like Alter g anti-gravity treadmills.I was already thinking of putting it on my list of impossible gifts to the wise men, along with flying in zero gravity, a date with a superheroine, riding the rotor attraction, or flying or levitation.

A photo of a Velorian after being shot with some armor-piercing .50 cal. No costume, just ordinary clothing and completely bulletproof skin. 

If the shooter is smart, they would give up now. But if not, well, the blouse is already ruined. Fire away. Eventually, one of the ricochets is going to find its way back to the shooter and ruin his whole day.

I've shared a few frames from this book before, but this one kind of sums the writer's take on Kara pretty well. Which is to say, she uses too much force, has an attitude, saves the kid, but is also insecure about what to wear. 

Basically, a rebellious, teenage Supergirl who is trying to figure out who she is. Hard enough for any teenager to grow into an adult, but when you're from Krypton, both by history and by abilities, its a lot harder, given the possibilities are far greater. For good or bad.
