Hopefully very soon. A new one was just approved.
Comic Fusion is the comic shop where I work in NJ. Are you asking about fabrics because you have a fetish? I'm not about to encourage this conversaton.
I can't remember specifically but one year I dressed up at Comic Fusion for every car show in town and that's during July & August. I'm sure it would have been in that time frame. Masks while sweating are particularly annoying.
I recently found your web site and through it Guns of Shadow Valley. I will be writing a review of the web comic on my own blog (Slap Bookleather) and would like to include a note about you. Would you mind if I put up a link?
I'm ok with it but I think you should ask Dave & Jim too. Since my work is a range from PG-13 to adult, they might not want the association with me.
Not my thing. I have very strong opinions on the subject. My modelmayhem inbox is 90% "photographers" whose portfolios consist of only bondage despite how there's nothing in my own port or profile to indicate I ever would consent to it. I consider it my role as a journalist to present it as a valid form of entertainment and educate people but on my own deeply personal level that should not reflect upon my fellow models, I think the idea of a woman being treated that way is vile. I don't see a single empowering thing about it unless the photoshoot tells the story about her escaping (like the way Princess Leia eventually kills Jabba). I'll never discourage my modeling friends if that's what they want to do but I'll usually chime in that they'll need an escort with them unless they have absolute trust in the photographer.

Kristina Uriegas-Reyes wrote this somewhat inspiring piece for bust.com about the Vogue Italia cover featuring three zaftig models looking as elegant and sexy as any stick-thin counterpart. I completely agree with her sentiments here:
"This cover is big, yet conflicting news for me. I’m not sure if it makes me really happy or just want to roll my eyes. It’s a great step by the fashion industry, but the fact that it’s such a big deal is kind of annoying. Someday I’d like to see an integration of plus-size models among normal ones to showcase all body types rather than having a special “Plus-Size Model” issue."
The link to the article is NSFW but there you find the most glorious black and white photos of bigger size fashion models.
