Glad to see Jack Kirby's characters are still alive and well. I like your selection of characters. But I like even more that you did your own style of the Kirby Krackle for the background. I really like it when people throw in a little Kirby-ism into the art.
Barda is pretty awsome, and while Scott Free has often come across as the smarter of the two, Barda probably is just as smart, she's just more direct and passionate. DC have so many great characters, i wish they would make better use of them, it was cool when they were the focus of an episode of Justice League Unlimited.
Oh, God, HEART! I'm so glad you posted your 2011 retrospective -- I would've missed this one! I love how huge and pleased she is with life. And Scott looks just as adoring as he should. *ahahahhaa* So hot!
Barda's stronger and taller than Scott, but she's not smarter. How they're a flip is that she's the muscle and brawn, but he's the wily and clever brains. He's much more reasonable and cerebral than her. That's not to say she's stupid, just much more volatile.
Aw, that's both incredibly good-looking AND sweet! Big Barda is such a great looking character (such a shame that we don't see more tall and stronger girls in comics like that), but her marriage is the real bonus here; they have such a loving relationship matched on by...well, can't say Spider-Man's, thanks to freaking QUESADA, and...okay, my point is, Big Barda and her husband are awesome.
