Read comics.

I love her. You know why?

Because she's FAT.

There used to be lots of fat people in comics. They weren't stupid or incapable. They were just big. Nowadays, even supporting cast members have to be model beautiful.

It's kind of like what happened on "The Real World".

Man, I miss Suicide Squad.

What's John Ostrander writing these days?
Ostrander's doing new Grimjack Tales for IDW Publications.
I also love her. But I'm not sure if the blue strappy heels they have her in are really in character for her. And they don't even match the overly heavy eyeshadow. Maybe it's a scare tactic...
