Today Jojo draws Silk Spectre… sort of. Not really.
Today we’re having Jojo draw characters from Watchmen. As I said, Jojo has read part of Watchmen but not all, and Silk Spectre is a lot of the reason she abandoned it. She told me she remembered her as “super bitchy, with a gross costume.” Jojo was also frustrated that when Dr. Manhattan took her to Mars she was all like, “oooh I want to fight about our relationship instead of being amazed that I’m on mars!” (Jojo’s words, not mine. I love Watchmen, don’t lynch me).
So she drew what she remembered: a sullen, bitchy woman in a gross costume. I don’t know that you can say this is Silk Spectre though. The boots look kinda like the boots from the movie, and I guess the bathing suit-thing is not totally off. But in the comic she’s wearing a yellow, see-through dress over the whole outfit, and has flat hair. I think she’s remembering the hair of the original Silk Spectre, Sally Jupiter, who had a 40s style hair cut that was a little bit like this, a very little bit. And anyway, Sally Jupiter also wore a sort of yellow dress as a costume, and Jojo was trying to draw her daughter.
Also, there’s no excusing the hoop earrings and headband.
This does look like it could be a super hero from the 80s, a lot of them looked a little like this. I like this brand new character Jojo has accidentally created.
I call her Bitchy 80s Lady.
