These Beautiful Oil Paintings Might Throw You For a Loop

The comics world has no shortage of artists who’ve made a name for themselves by creating very photorealistic paintings of superheroic subjects. In a genre with such lowered standards for realism, it’s understandable that there would be a demand, or at the least, an intense curiosity to see what characters would be like with more rigid narrative or visual demands placed upon them.

Doug Bloodworth, however, is doing something slightly different than that, even.

Instead of painting realistic comics, he paints comics… realistically.

Does anybody else suddenly really want an Oreo?

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
