Artist's Description

This was turned in late, and so was not included in the 2011 Comic-con souvenir book – actually, it’s more likely that the reason is my use of both Marvel and DC characters. The theme was 1986, The Year That Changed Comics – but you can only show characters from one company. sigh

So, a few years have passed in the 1986verse. Silk Spectre II has done as she half-jokingly said at the end of Watchmen; gone in the direction of her father, The Comedian. She’s now the Steel Spectre (her shoulder plate has the happy face of the infamous button) – I’ll provide better shots of all 3 of these characters. Carrie Kelley’s Robin costume has evolved somewhat in the same direction as Tim Drake’s in the main DCU (this is before, or perhaps after, her stint as Catgirl in 2001’s DKSB). Elektra has left the jazzercise unitard behind for more traditional and functional ninja clothing and armor – in her favorite color, of course. The centenary of International Women’s Day was March 8th, and I misunderstood this to mean this entire year was the centenary of women or something, hence the conceit behind this piece.
