Warrior Women Of European Comics Chapter II

Welcome back for another small selection of Bandes Dessinee/Fumetti/Comic covers from Europe starring fierce young women who seem to have misplaced half their clothing.

Clearly there's a big market for these otherwise there wouldn't be so many titles around but it does lead to one obvious question: How come this sort of thing never crossed the Channel to the UK?

Disclaimer: I do not claim to be an expert on this subject and I think I'm doing well just getting the titles right.

Yesterday we started with a scantily clad swashbuckler. I think today should have more of the same.


 La Corsara Nera (Italy 1976-1980)

 She took out four musketeers on her lonesome but can't quite find a skirt that fits properly. 

I should mention that on this cover the lovely Corsair is actually wearing clothes. 
Not normally the case...



Proving that the Europeans continue to love feisty females here's a more recent entry.

Les Guerrières De Troy (France 2013)





 Definitely less cheesecake on these and more "Wanna start something? Bring it!" 
Anybody else think there's a wee bit of ElfQuest in the character designs? 


Helga (Italy 1969)

 Having a boob-window in your armour is bad enough. having a bloody great gap in your breastplate just above your tit can be neither clever nor comfortable. 

I honestly don't know if Helga is an actual character or the name of the comic because going by the covers I've seen, she changes her hair, skin colour and time period on a weekly basis. 
The two things that remain constant are that she doesn't wear much clothing and somebody is about to die violently.

More covers here: (NSFW) https://comicvine.gamespot.com/helga


Odissea (Italy ?)

 Just for a change we have a statuesque Amazon instead of a Penthouse Pet and holy crap does she look murderous. 

I may continue this theme later.

That's all folks.

The Warrior Women Of European Comics

  What better way to get back into blogging than by sharing some pictures of women waving swords about?

  These are all from various European Comics sites I've found on the net. Sadly, I've never read any of them and most likely never will, so one can only wonder if the character lives up to the cover.

 

Moschettiera (Italy 1982-1983)


If there was such a thing as a "Sexy Musketeer" costume for Halloween it would still be less revealing than this.
Note that while she's kicking the downed duellist in the face she's also saying some very rude things about his..ahem...other sword. 

I found a wee bit more information and a cover gallery here: http://www.guidafumettoitaliano.com/guida/testate/testata/4753  (NSFW)

Even with my limited knowledge of French/Spanish/Italian comics I can't help noticing that there seems to be dozens of these scantily clad anti-heroines rampaging through European history with a combination of sex and violence that would make the UK tabloids foam at the mouth. 

There really isn't a UK equivalent at all. 


Lucifera  (Italy 1972-1980. Also published in France.)




Between the name and the blazing type-font I'm guessing that Lucifera is most definitely an Anti-heroine in the darkest sense. 
I wonder if she nicked Vampirella's costume or it was the other way about?
I'm also quite impressed by the way her armourer managed to make Chain-Mail skintight




Gengis Khana (Italy 1979)


So Gengis Khan had a sister/daughter/???  who apparently looked like a supermodel and invented Bikini bottoms 7 centuries early. 
Amazing how such little things slip through the cracks of history, innit?

She's looking a bit more warlike here although she's just discovered that getting your armour designed by Ann Summers is a bad idea. 

More covers here:
Needless to say this link is NSFW. 

Going purely by the covers it looks like the writers eventually gave up on the 13th century Mongol bollocks 
and turned Khana into a full-on porno title.  (assuming she wasn't a porno from day one...)

If any of you have read  these, let me know what you thought and whether they're worth searching on Ebay. 

See you tomorrow for more of the same.

That's all folks.

The Metal Project: Heavy Metal Tonight

metal songs about metal, ultimate metal songlist.

 Evening all. 

 I'm writing this on November 5th, which for all you non-Brits out there is "Let's let off sodding fireworks until the small hours Night".  I also have a stinking cold so I'm a bit grumpy.  Screw it. Metal Time!

There's no theme for tonight, just a small selection of songs chosen at random. Enjoy. 

Стальные нервы - Metal (Russia 2014)




Vesper - Metal Evocation (Italy 2015)


Honour to: FB Metal Groups 5


Luzifer - Heavy Metal Tinnitus (Germany 2015)

The vocals take a bit of getting used to but other than that, this is one for big fans of NWOBHM guitar runs.

 Honour to: Mr666Doom


Atomik Nightmare - Metal From Hell (Colombia 2013)


Honour to: camilodarkness


Thunder Steel - Heavy Metal Tonight (Colombia 2013)
