Jessica Campbell Casts A Female Gaze On The Art World In ‘Hot or Not?’ [Love & Sex Week]

hotornot-feat

Jessica Campbell’s Hot or Not: 20th Century Male Artists has a very simple premise: which 20th century artists were bangable? And based on an artist’s work, can we tell if they were hot or not?

Published by Koyama Press in fall 2016, Hot or Not is a short but searing work of satire skewering the male-dominated world of art, and society’s desire to pass judgement on people based on their attractiveness --- which is of course subjective, as is art itself.

Since becoming the cornerstone of the DC Collectibles action figure line, the DC Icons series has been filled with some terrific interpretations of our favorite heroes. With Icons, DC Collectibles has picked and chosen some of the best iterations of DC Comics' massive catalog of characters, ranging from classic stories from the '80s all the way up through the New 52. Though the DC Icons figures have yet to truly touch the Rebirth era, a few New 52 holdovers have made the cut, including the newest deluxe edition figure, Batgirl of Burnside.

Based on the revamped Batgirl from Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr's run on her solo title, the DC Icons Batgirl of Burnside is stylish, well-sculpted and comes with a wicked ride. Most importantly however, Batgirl serves as an example of the greatness Icons could achieve.

There might never be a more perfect time to read Jaeger, the digital comic by Ibrahim Moustafa, published on the Stela app. It's a spy story in the mold of James Bond, only its protagonist is an Arab chasing down the Nazis who imprisoned him.
