THE TUESDAY TUSSLE: Paulo Siqueira vs Black Canary

The Tuesday Tussle; the biggest illustrators squaring off against pops biggest icons - icons you thought they'd never touch. This week Paulo Siqueira, the Brazillian who has everyone's spider-sense tingling with his work on Marvel's wall-crawler-verse, hits the true leader of the Justice League of America - Black Canary. Fight!

WINNER: Black Canary. Seriously, is this not the best DC's super-siren has looked? Lets see them have her play second string to Ollie now!

Since I discovered Paulo's online gallery, this shot of what I still consider DC's most unsung female hero has been my desktop wallpaper. And God help me if each day my wallet doesnt mistake it as an issue #1 teaser and bolt for the door, just so it can throw itself across the comic store counter to reserve a copy.

Check out Paulo's portfolio, just click DC's true 'Wonder Woman'.

  3. Thanks guys - glad you liked it as much as I did!

    I just like how confident and strong she seems too! I hate when she's drawn too soft or fragile - she's a martial artist for pete's sake! She should look like she could even take Bats on - and here she does!
