Uggghhh!!!! Why did Brian have to make me seem like the sane one here??? I feel like such a lame fuddy-duddy when up against Colonel Pokey-Nipples. Seriously, what is that lady's deal? I guess she said that she thinks she's "some gamer bro's idea of an empowered woman," but like, she wasn't drawn by a gamer…She was drawn and designed by Brian, who's just an idiot. What even is the message being sent here? I'm being skeptical of some gal standing there in a camo bikini with a bazooka while I'm wearing a miniskirt over fishnets! It's only the fourth time I've worn a skirt in my entire series and I choose to do it here?!? What the flying fudge cake was I thinking?
Actually, I'll tell you what I was thinking: I wasn't. What really happened is that Brian likes drawing the volumetric criss-cross pattern of fishnets (DC should hire him to draw something for Black Canary) and wasn't in the mood to draw my usual cargo pants, so I got to wear this, which is fine, but a little chilly for the First of December. (Huh…Maybe that's why Col. Bombshell's tits are all pointy today…) Of course, I'd still have a bare midriff no matter what, so maybe I don't have the best leg to stand on regarding the topic of weather…
Honestly, though, writing this Scribb1e is causing me to reflect and realize that Colonel Bombshell actually has a pretty fun character design, in that ridiculous, unrealistic-but-amusing sense. I would't be that opposed to her showing up again, but it'd need to be for a good reason, and she's got to get a damn hobby. Talking about your radioactive tattoo is never an interesting conversation. Also, like…is it just the radioactivity symbol, or did she get it done with radioactive ink or something? With that, the cigars, and all the bare skin, how many different kinds of cancer is she gonna get? (Oops! I've been told that cancer is one of those things you shouldn't joke about…Oh well!) These are questions that need not ever be explored, because, like me, she is a fictional character who can be exempt from consequences as the author sees fit.
Anyway, Colonel Bombshell is fuckin' ridiculous, and "Colonel" is a hilariously spelled word. What would be really funny is if it were abbreviated ":L", since then it would be colon-L. Get it??? Aren't I clever? Ah, screw you! Go buy something from the Libby Sk8er Girl collection on the Starry Knight Studios Threadless shop (link above)…Also, the series finale of Seinfeld is STUPID!
