Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Sex and superheroes are a potentially dangerous combination, as controversies over the past couple of years involving depictions of Superman and Wonder Woman, Batman and Catwoman, and Starfire have demonstrated time and again. However, Stjepan Sejic isn’t afraid of jumping into the fire, and adding a dash of humor.
Sejic, artist of the Top Cow series Aphrodite IX as well as his graphic novel series Ravine, frequently posts amusing sketches, pin-ups and editorial cartoons such as the above on his DeviantArt page. He’s well aware of the fetishism aspects of superhero genre, specifically that of women, and even pokes fun at it in his work.
To date, Sejic’s printed work is primarily of the serious and sci-fi nature, but these superhero illustrations are a surprising breath of fresh air for both fans and, as it appears, for Sejic as well.
