Someone just shared this on Tumblr and it's so amazing I had to share it here. This photo was taken in the bathroom of Isotope Comics in San Fran.

No words can describe how awesome this is. Is it wrong that I want Amanda Conner to draw on my toilet seat now...? (I wonder how offended she'll get if I take one to a Con for her to draw on.) :lol:

That looks HYSTERICAL.

Can anyone make out what the bottom word balloon says?

It says 'and yes... I AM going to add snaps in this damn outfit.' Something tells me it may be difficult to get out of in a hurry.

Nothing to say except I wish message boards had a "like" button like facebook.

Damnit, I've always wanted to go to Isotope, and I completely forgot about it when I was actually in San Fransisco two weeks ago!

The thing I adore the most about that drawing is Amanda and PG both acknowledging how fucking hard that costume is to get in and out of.

Looking at her, pretty much naked, all of her costume down to her ankles, her gloves, cape and belt hanging around... It's just hysterical.

Er... yeah, that's it. That was the word I was going to use. "Hysterical." :scared:

Except when a Kryptonian poops... it shoots through the crust of the Earth, then through the mantle, the core, then back out the other side of the planet... :scared:

But yeah. Amanda Conner can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Ever.

That is pretty awesome. Ceebee sent it to me this morning and I almost snorted coffee out my nose.

I think it's great that this is going to be a thing. Because I'm going to bring one to her, too.

Heheheheheh. Classy. :lol:

So if Clark's...erm...equipment is called a Kryptonite shot-gun, would that make this a Kryptonite Oil Drill?


But yeah. Amanda Conner can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Ever.

Yes--at this point I'll pretty much buy anything with her name on it.

I was a little...under the weather when I did mine. Someday I'll ship him one that I'll do sober.

yeah one of the definite highlights is the wall of toilet seat covers. some amazing stuff up there.

I also love Storm....because he's ridiculously adorable. So storm and toilet seats, the best reasons to go to Isotope....

If you meet him you will know what I mean. One of my favorite people in comics.

It is indeed true. Everyone poops.And a Kryptonian effort could be difficult on the plumbing! (Think woman of steel, plumbing of plastic).

Is Amanda the only one who actually had the guts to make her toilet seat ABOUT using a toilet?

This is one of my favorite little things about Amanda's Power Girl - she treats Power Girl's outfit as if it was real clothing. This is actually extremely uncommon. Usually writers and artists follow this convention of "Let's pretend Clark Kent is wearing a Superman outfit including the cape and boots under his regular clothes, and this is in no way noticeable." Oh, occasionally there might be some handwave explanation given about super-compression or unstable molecules or somesuch, but by and large it's not something anyone wants to draw attention to. Occasionally it gets taken to really absurd levels, like Steve Rogers not only wearing scale armor under clothes, but carrying his shield on his back too!

I thought it was really neat that Power Girl does wear her outfit underneath regular clothes - but in a way that makes sense, and without "cheating" much! Karen wears these outfits that pretty much cover everything (and the high collar is accounted for too, hence her affinity for scarves.) Even the boots - she ordinarily wears her Power Girl boots as Karen, but sometimes with coverings of some sort. And despite being all covered up, she still manages to look cool, stylish, and sexy!

I'm on my phone so can't link, but amanda just put a bunch of her powergirl pages up for sale. There's a link on Jimmy's twitter which is jpalmiotti
