BGC's NENE and LINNA by AdamWarren BGC's NENE and LINNA by AdamWarren
An old-ish con sketch of Nene and Linna from BUBBLEGUM CRISIS. Yes, they indeed have lips, in this version of the characters; please, just DEAL WITH IT, those of you who are prone to conniptions at the very idea of an anime character with a mouth that's not entirely muppet-like. After all, shockingly enough, a burgeoning number of "real manga-ka" (that is, authentic Japanese artists) actually draw visible lips on their characters nowadays...

Amusingly enough, I turned to the inside back cover of EMPOWERED vol. 1 (my "sexy superhero comedy" from Dark Horse, on sale this Wednesday, March 21st!) and was stunned to discover that Dark Horse apparently still has copies of the TPB of BUBBLEGUM CRISIS: GRAND MAL for sale! GRAND MAL was my 1994 miniseries telling a new tale of the Knight Sabers; I'm quite surprised to find it's still available.

Let me take this opportunity to tell the rest of the Warren fans who haven't yet picked up Grand Mal the following: You'll love the warped presentation of the BGC backstory, the vocal stylings of Priss (I like to imagine Arch Enemy's Angela Gossow as Priss in that scene--Hail the Diva Satanica!), the wisecracks of Nene, the slam-bang action, the fan service, and how Warren can refer to the original Japanese lyrics of "There's a Hurricane Tonight" and to LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" in the same volume. I say: Pick it up NOW!

Nice pencilling... assuming you did this by pencil.

Regardless, I like the details you did for the entire piece.

Great art work men, love the way you draw Bubblegum Girls, and is really true what you says i don't see why someone have to complain about you drawing lips(by the way i love your way to do it) real goods manga-kas like Yukito Kishiro and Masamune Shirow draw lips in their characters, and so many more, that is better and looks more sexys the girls with that detail. :D

As a proud owner of 'Grand Mal', I've just gotta fave this.

You really should try to make more DP and BGC art, man. I mean, it has been my bad luck that I only own one DP paperback ('Sim Hell'. I also had 'Run From The Future', but it was stolen) and problably will never get the rest (woe me!).

But I try to get all other stuff. I'm also a proud owner of the two Emp paperbacks that has been released so far.
