Editor Bobbie Chase on the portrayal of women in comic books:
Comics in general have taken a lot of heat for not representing female characters fairly. As a successful female industry professional, what are your thoughts on this?
I think in many worst-case scenarios the heat is absolutely valid. In those cases women are drawn and written from a fantasy perspective.
What changes should be implemented to turn that fact around?
The most obvious would be anatomy. A more realistic anatomy and more realistic posing of female characters would be an immense improvement. Also, too many women characters are written as helpless victims. Although some stories might call for that type of character, because of the fact that there are too few role models for women in comics, I think it’s important that writers stay away from that.
Would it be fair to say that the anatomy element applies to male characters as well? That much muscle is also the stuff of fantasies.
True, but I still strongly believe it’s worse for females for the simple reason that the male characters celebrate physical power in their stature whereas the female figures celebrate sexual presence.
—interviewed by Robert Piotrowski in 1998.
A fabulous and unique autograph questionnaire page, 7.5 x 5, completely filled out in fountain pen by Hepburn. At the top she writes her full name, “Katharine Houghton Hepburn, February 13th, 1945,” adding a self-portrait caricature in the upper right corner. Underneath she adds her street address, date of birth and birthplace. She lists her likes “eating,” and dislikes “not eating,” and answers four other questions: Favorite Pastime “Tennis in spite of my game”; Favorite Boy’s Name “Thomas”; Favorite Movie Star “Spencer Tracy”; and Life’s Ambition “To be a tennis champion who retired unbeaten.” Eddie Duchin has filled out the reverse of the page, with his life’s ambition to be a “Champion Slot machine player.” In fine condition. An insightful and candid offering from the usually private Hepburn, who at this time was dedicating much of her time to Tracy and his personal issues. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
