Art Share: "Tied Up Tuesday" / Canon Comics IV

Updated: Sep 9, 2023

#Tied_Up_Tuesday this week is going off canonical moments from the comics! While one would be hard-pressed to get the "most satisfying" #DiD-ness from 'official' artists, it is still no less enticing when we do get 'em. This time, we are going to be a bit more friendly with DC. So without further adieu, let's get into this week, shall we?

I love it when a Villainess/antagonist/anti-hero gets herself on the other end of the distress. While Talia Al Ghul usually acts as a lover role for Batman, it's no secret that she does bump heads with the Caped Crusader and crew. Well, in this issue of Batman vs Robin, she ain't gonna be doing much but hanging around. And she should be thankful, for sure!

There's an infamous Malibu Comics version of Street Fighter--it's not canon and it's detested by the majority of Street Fighter fans. I initially thought that the comic panels above with Chun Li bound and gagged were from that comic series, but I was wrong. I'm not sure what this is but it's Chun Li in some moments. Do check out the source to start somewhere if one wants to deep dive.

DC is a focus of this post and if we talk about DC, we can't leave off one of Wonder Woman's most 'recent' moments! And it's actually drawn quite well with some awesome gag and decent ropework! Then again, this is Wonder Woman: Earth One we are talking about where it seems that it tries to touch on Wonder Woman's bondage themes. Not sure how it tried or if it did it good or anything. I had the first issue and it didn't get really anywhere though I did see images off follow up issues where the bondage is there. These two images from #3 is an example, of course. And, again, they're well drawn, though Diana is just playing possum. Good acting, though.

I do have one qualm in regards to this Black Widow moment: her face is completely obscured. Though beyond that, it's a 'recreate', if you will, of her Avengers moment and they got her legs tied to the seperate chair legs which is always candy as far as I'm concerned. Didn't see this comic book so chances are that it may not even be Natasha and it's a 'gotcha' moment. Oh well. It's a Damsel in Distress!

This Elseworld actually looks interesting. Medieval DC universe and Canary's weakness carries over: being gagged. Alsso, she's got a unique contraption keeping her gagged. wish it showed more since the art is nice but it is what it is.

Ending it with Empowered! Issue 12 is out too so I need to catch up on my reading! But, yeah, this was one of the best #DiD sequence that Emp got herself in! Anyways, that's it for this week!

Until Next Time!
