PUNISHER v BATMAN, by Dana Obera (Nov 2014).

This one-shot was made as a tribute for Chuck Dixon and John Romita Jr’s PUNISHER / BATMAN: DEADLY KNIGHTS. It was the best Punisher book I’ve read sitting behind Greg Rucka’s series and Jim Lee’s PWJ. This story was already in the back of my mind for a long time. I’m glad I finally had the time to put it into a six pages one shot in November 2014.

My Photoshop is still very amateurish, I know. I have much to learn :b

This one-shot got me the honour to be interviewed by CB Cebulski in Nov 2014, ITGCC. His comment was, “I love how you draw the action sequence, it’s really flowing. You Probably got that from the manga. Expression and gesture are all there. You’re not shy on drawing hands. But there is one minus point: Frank here looks too manga. Batman and Joker don’t look manga, but Frank? Too manga.”

I’m taking the advice very seriously, and I’m planning to improve my facial characteristic in my next study/practice. I hope you’re sticking around for the ride :)

Ps. If you like it, please REPOST. Thank you :)

Let’s Talk Books (9/?)

Women in Vietnam

Scholars have been sparse in their study of women during the Vietnam War. Their writings on the service of women becomes even more scarce, and downright nonexistent, when other minority aspects, like race, are factored into the equation. This makes it all the more necessary to read those works available to the public (published books rather than dissertations or articles in scholarly journals), applaud what has received deserved attention, and ask questions where gaps exist. The following books examine the role of women who served in different capacities in Vietnam.

  • Beyond Combat: Women and Gender in the Vietnam War Era by Heather Marie Stur - (Cambridge University Press, 2011) It is not only the sharing of women’s experiences in Vietnam that must occur, but the study of their roles within the war from varied angles. Stur provides this insight by studying not only the jobs performed by women, but what was expected of them in terms of their gender. 
  • Officer, Nurse, Woman: The Army Nurse Corps in the Vietnam War by Kara Dixon Vuic - (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010) The main focus of Vuic’s work is to examine the effects of the “cultural climate of the era” on the Army Nursing Corps. The Army, and individual soldiers, sought to exploit the ideas of traditional feminine gender roles, even as nurses meaningfully expanded their medical experiences. Vuic utilizes official records along with interviews conducted with nurses.
  • Women at War: The Story of Fifty Military Nurses Who Served in Vietnam by Elizabeth Norman - (University of Pennsylvania Press, 1990) A result of her doctoral dissertation, Norman interviewed 50 military nurses in 1983-84 and from those interviews highlighted the common threads in their experiences. She also highlights common themes between female and male service members, and between experiences in Vietnam with earlier wars.

dixons-mama  asked:

Just curious if you think there is any significance to a particular scene I found intriguing. The scene was in the morgue, Culverton kept asking John if he was really a doctor, and after repeatedly saying he was, even said he was a military doctor. Idk why that feels like such an important scene to me. I think bc of the doctor=attraction to women/ soldier=attraction to men thing. Please tell me if I'm just crazy!

Hi Lovely!

I’ve actually discussed a similar topic regarding this scene before here. I actually think the odd repetition is Smith’s way of triggering a hypnosis response in John, since I think he may possibly be under the influence of TD-12.

“Are you really a doctor?” – repeating it then instills doubt into John’s mind, in turn making him then question “am I? I couldn’t save Sherlock… nor Mary… nor anyone. It’s why I was shot. It’s why everyone leaves me.” A man like John, with low self-esteem, latent PTSD and possibly having his defences lowered with the drug in his system, the soldier then takes over in that moment. 

I just have a very hard time with that scene at all, especially since in the past 3 seasons PLUS TAB, John is shown to be compassionate towards Sherlock’s foibles. I don’t know. 

I have, though, seen the comparison been made before about the duality of his soldier / doctor persona is a metaphor for his bisexuality, which could be plausible as well; this is fiction after all, and often fiction uses “this or that” type scenarios to explain something else. It’s a shitty stigma about bisexuality to explain it as being “either-or” because it’s not that simple AT ALL, but in fiction metaphors like that exist because it’s the simplest way to get a point across, unfortunately. 

But yeah, I can see where you’re coming from here. I actually started a meta a LONG LONG LONG time ago about a similar topic re: John’s sexuality being metaphorically compared to his internal struggle of doctor vs soldier (safe vs dangerous). It got really in depth, maybe I’ll finish it up one day. I simply wasn’t educated enough at that time about bisexuality as a whole, so I thought it best to leave it be.
