“Goodbye, reserve JLA membership”.
Birds of Prey #2, by Gail Simone and Ed Benes.
Again, Ed Benes knows what to bring to a panel. The costume here is a little unfortunate, but especially in context, you FEEL the impact. I cannot tell you how many times I have asked for a fight to ‘look like it HURTS,’ and the artist simply doesn’t bring that kind of kapow.
I really do love working with Ed. I always know I have a wide, wide range of emotions I can ask for and he will always nail them.
Now if I can get the butt shots down to a manageable level! ;)
I remember in one of the issues you two did in your first BoP run Black Canary and Cheshire fought in a giant hotel. During the fight, Cheshire got knocked out of her window and into a pool. And then I remember that Cheshire continued to fight despite the fact that she was wearing nothing but a soaked white negligee. I had a hard time reading that fight because it was so ridiculously over-the-top. I just couldn’t stop laughing. I love Benes, too. But did it ever get to a point where you had to pull him aside and say, “Benes, no, just…no…”?
