Lycra-Woman & Spandex-Girl #3
(Valentine Special #1)- This issue, more than any other,
proves that this series is not for young kids. It is the most
overtly sexual of any of the "specials". Heavy on sexual
innuendo. The main villainess is a sexy French chef by the name
of Oo-La-La. The other enemies are two twin pre-teen girls named
Passion and Ecstasy. They have the magic power to cause instant
orgasms in women and men alike. Lots of bondage and posing.
These comics would've benefitted greatly from
color. It's a shame that they couldn't make that happen. I
think illustrated women are far sexier when they are in color versus
black and white. I think teens and up could read this, as there
is no nudity or actual sex. But the content matter is certainly
not for elementary kids. I dig it, but it may not be for prudes.
Lycra Woman & Spandex Girl #5 (Jurassic
Dinosaur Special #1)- Our
two buff, athletic lovelies battle their old nemesis, a cavewoman named
Ug, who has seemingly gone legit by selling cloned dinosaurs as
pets. But in reality, missing author Robert Crichton is behind
the whole evil plot, using events from this incident as material for
his new book.
totally slams author Michael Crichton and his book/movie "Jurassic
Park". The name of the story is called "Jurassic Lark". The
writer was probably a bit too mean here, but the whole story is still
incredibly funny. If you're a Crichton fanatic, though, you may
want to back off from reading this book.
cast of characters is wild and hilarious. It's just so bizarre
that it's entertaining. The only thing that holds this comic back
is the fact that it's black and white. Color would realize it a
lot better, but this is an independent comic so you get what you get.
not scathingly) written by Bryan J.L. Glass, with artwork by Sky
Owens. Sky really knows how to draw a curvaceous, overly sexy
Spandex Tights (Series 1) #6 (Spandex Tights vs. the Mighty Awful Sour
Rangers #1)- The
numbering of Aerobic Duo comics was once again made difficult by the
fact that this issue is also known as "Mighty Awful Sour Rangers"
#1. As a matter of fact, this is how it is usually
referenced. Those who look for "Spandex Tights (Series 1)" #6
often hit a snag, when these two issues are really one and the same.
This issue was cover-dated July, 1995. It is
EXTREMELY difficult to find as a back issue. I'm one of the lucky
ones who owns an autographed copy. As a matter of fact, my copy
is signed by creator/writer Bryan J.L. Glass, artist Doug Slack, cover
artist Sky Owens, and artist/inker Bob Dix.
The front cover, done by Sky Owens, features the
"Mighty Awful Sour Rangers". This is the best you will see them
drawn. The art in the actual Sour Rangers story is very choppy
(intentionally), as it is really a "Li'l Frank" story in
disguise. Those familiar to the series know that Frank Boyd is
the dweeby assistant to the Aerobic Duo. In past issues, story of
Frank as a little boy, "Li'l Frank", were made as back-up
features. Those stories always show a cruder, more childlike art
style to reflect on the fact that this is set when Frank was younger.
The feature story is a brilliant satire on the
over-commercialized and rather lowly form of entertainment known as TVs
"Power Rangers". During the filming of "Mighty Awful Sour
Rangers: The Movie", spoiled Cotton Candy Ranger Kimmy wants
superheroines Flex Woman and Spandex Girl, the Aerobic Duo, to be the
supervillains! The entire production company of the Sour Rangers
coaxes the Aerobic Duo into fighting while the cameras are rolling.
In this story, the leader of the team is Kimmy, the
Cotton Candy Ranger, a spoof on the Pink Ranger. Denim Ranger
parodies the Blue Ranger, the Poop-Head Ranger spoofs the Black Ranger
(illustrated on the cover as brown), the Banana Ranger is the Yellow
Ranger, Ketchup Ranger is the Red Ranger, and Pea Soup Ranger is the
Green Ranger. A funny joke is that Pea Soup Ranger used to be the
"Clan Ranger", but his character "didn't go over well in certain parts
of the country". The henchmen in the original "Mighty Morphin
Power Rangers" TV series were called "Puddy Men". Here, they are
called "Pugslies", and they all look like Pugsly from "The Addams
Just when the story climaxes, we find out that the
"battle" was just play pretend between Li'l Frank and his sister.
Li'l Frank was on the side of the Rangers, since he did not like girls
at this time, nor did he idolize the Aerobic Duo. His sister,
actually, is the one who was on the side of Flex Woman and Spandex
Girl. This story is just imaginary, and never really happened.
I think this story is as funny as all get out, and
it's drawn funny, but I was really hoping that it was going to be drawn
more realistic like what we see on the cover. Still, this was
pretty satire-rich parody, and worth seeking out.
The second story is "Shrinking Violence", drawn in
the traditional way. It spoofs Sid & Marty Krofft
Productions, the creators of TV's "Electra-Woman & Dyna-Girl", of
which the Aerobic Duo was directly inspired. Throughout the
story, you'll see various villain characters from the now classic
"Electra-Woman & Dyna-Girl" series.
The third story is a Spandex Girl solo farce called
"Pie vs. Pie". In her teenage civilian identity, Spandex Girl,
really Suzie Strang, battles Sloppo, the living school lunch. Who
comes to aid Spandex Girl in the fight against the monster?
American Pie, a mock-up of Marvel's Captain America character.
The home-ec-minded superhero uses his super-strength and giant silver
pie pan in his battle against the creature.
Overall, a pretty funny issue.
