Default Interesting Graphic Novel

"Fat Mitch" Twin Comics...October, 2006

http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=89586

"Fat Mitch is a good looking guy who simply is a bigger man. It probably doesn’t help that the man owns a bakery, but that is beside the point. ‘Bigger’ girls are way into Fat Mitch but Mitch just longs for a skinny girl. One particular girl is Karen, the girl who works over at the flower shop. When the big man goes in armed with cookies and a date proposal the mean See-You-Next-Tuesday blows poor Mitch off in a heartbeat, knowing full well that she would never date a man as fat as Mitch.."

Hard to say without reading the whole thing, but it sounds vaguely depresssing but with some element of realism in there...

Wasn't Fat Ninja turned into the movie 'Beverly Hills Ninja' starring Chris Farley?

I've probably got enough kicking about to make something approximating a medium sized haystack, something could probably be arranged.

Well, when I'm not drawing my big girl art, I also make comics. And as such, I tend ot over-analyze the stuff. It seems to me that most comics that have fat characters have them either as comic relief, or in the cases of the above examples, make fat the point of the book. Hell, it's in both titles as though that's what the story has to be about.

In superhero comics, fat characters are usually labled with gag names and powers directly related to the fact that they're fat. The X-Men villain who's power is that he cannot be moved once he's stood his ground is massively fat and called the blob. In the 90's there was a comic called HARBINGER with a young, teenage girl who could fly named Zepplin. She was fat, and so she calls herself Zepplin... A BLIMP!? She was written well overall, but the half-joke still had to be made. The powers had to be linked to her being fat, and it comes of as not dissimilar to Black characters in the 70's being called "Black-Something-or-other".

If you're doing a comedy, I can see the point of that. And "Fat Mitch" certainly seems to be a story where fat IS a key plot point because of it's slice-of-life description. Still, I wish fat characters could just be characters and were'nt ALWAYS defined by being fat. Sure, in any kind of realistic depiction, it's bound to come up, but it doesn't always have to be the beginning, middle and end, does it?

Sorry, I'm ranting. I guess this kind of is a pet peeve of mine. lol

You guys might like the relaunch of Harbinger - I just read a preview for issue 4 and that character seems to be calling herself Zephyr now. What's interesting is that the company Valiant was teasing the reintroduction of the character and they played it pretty low-key. But she used to be just a bit pudgy and now she looks much bigger - and the very first storyline involves her getting a date while stereotypically hot chicks look on jealously.
