I like stuff. I like to share stuff. Sometimes, I even draw stuff and like it enough to share with the other stuff.

... And there's a lot of Dazzler. #mystuff

Starring Gentry Roth, directed by Arvin Bautista. Costume designed by Leetal Platt.

This is cute. Major kudos for being obvious Dazzler fans.

X-Girls - Storm, Psylocke, Rogue, and Dazzler by Marc Silvestri

I’m so torn between the nostalgic giddiness of Silvestri returning to his X-Girls and the strange porniness to it. Okay, it’s still kinda hot… I guess.EDIT: I like Ali better in his earlier draft…

Well it’s been posted, so I guess I can show it. Say hello to the all new dazzler! Debuting in Uncanny X-men 24

Here’s the thing: y’all are free to love or hate or like or be indifferent as you want about this.
This is part of a story. You know there’s a reason for this (especially if you’ve been reading All-New X-Men). If you for some reason don’t know, you aren’t gonna find two more thoughtful creators in comics than Bendis and Anka.
There’s a point to this.
If seeing a design you ain’t down with leads you to harass creators (aka human beings) in even the slightest way, then, I dunno, check yourself? Check yourself.
And also know that comics are cyclical and Dazzler will probably be wearing roller skates again in six months time.

AGREED
And honestly, if you wanted Dazzler to be in the spotlight again that bad you should have been preparing for some shit to happen to her. Who wants to reads the story of someone doing good by him or herself without any ups and downs? Not me!

a) She’s not on All New X-Men
b) 
she can have good development without turning her to crap
c) redoing Ultimate Dazzler in the 616 isn’t “developing” it’s mimicking, mimicking crap since it was horrible the first time around.
d) if the “creators” couldn’t handle the heat then they wouldn’t expose themselves to the rabid fans. I have faith they are smart enough to understand and learn from both criticism and praise, and yes even downright hatred. 
So in short. Bendis you’re doing a horrible job with the franchise, I can’t wait to see you out and all your shit retconned like in Avengers. Anka you should practice a bit more sometimes. 

Educate ‘em, Val!Oh fuckyeahdeadxmen, how you make me laugh. Maybe read books with Dazzler in them before making such silly, uninformed statements?

Well, this is going to be an awkward amount of people to unfollow.

It’s no secret I loathe the Kris Anka Dazzler redesign and frankly, I enjoy that I am CLEARLY not alone in my feelings. I don’t care how anyone rationalizes it, it’s not her, but the majority of my disgust over it is what I fear it means for the character and how some angsty, angry makeover negates much of what she’s always stood for as opposed to just “ZOMG she’s fug now!”… but another time on the writing of Dazzler.

While I think he should be able to handle a certain level of criticism, not once have I thought anything remotely close to the heinous personal attacks I’ve seen taken on him. You’ve no idea what kind of person he is and why some of you think I’d join you in that behavior proves you don’t know what kind of person I am either. It’s gross and you suck.

And “Dykkler”? Seriously? That shit wasn’t funny with NEX Dazzler why would you think it’s any better now? That some of you claim to be Dazzler fans is hilarious. You think Alison would stand for that shit? Grow the fuck up.

My heart still hurts. I’m wallowing so I needed some pretty pretty Dazzler. Okay, so it’s MY pretty pretty Dazzler. Whatever. I said I was wallowing… Sh’up!

Sidenote: I really need to branch out beyond the ‘hand on hip’. Yeesh.

trollbananacrust asked: Can you talk about dazzlers design process?

kristaferanka:

When I was brought onto uncanny, the first thing I was asked to do was design a new “punk” dazzler that was specifically easy to cosplay, that Bendis had been keen of bringing into the book from the storyline he was creating for her. After a few rounds of notes, this is where the design fell.
I can go into more specifics into the process when I get home next week, but it doesn’t seem like people like it enough for me to elaborate on it.

The comments. SMH.

He’s a professional artist, he doesn’t need coddling. Not everything is instant win and considering his stellar track record, I’m pretty sure he’ll manage the strength to carry on. Newsflash: Not everyone that disagrees with or dislikes something is a troll.

He made a drastic design choice for a character that has suffered abuse for years by those who don’t “get” her image, a character often written as a dated joke by those with limited imaginations, a character with a very loyal, very vocal fanbase that has endured alongside her and feels every knock she takes yet continues holding out hope that she’ll one day get the recognition she deserves only to absorb yet another hit. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Fans already have a bad taste in their mouth with Bendis’ current handling of Dazzler, this is just another knock. Shocking that some people aren’t doing back flips over this next installment! Pfft.

ifirstavenger asked: Can I just say you have outdone yourself with the new Dazzler design. I congratulate you on your incredible talent of reinventing characters yet still staying true to who they are.

"… Also, who is Dazzler?"

Figure I’d finish his thought since he was obviously cut off.

Anonymous asked: Since it's Friday and that's when you show upcoming covers, can you reveal to us the cover to Uncanny X-Men (vol. 3) #24?

boom!

ladies and gentlemen, the new dazzler! by kris anka

… Because you can’t convey the deep ramifications of a character’s trauma without it being splattered all over every single inch of them.

This was not the day to see this.

Newsarama just posted a bit of a preview for Uncanny X-men 23

This is the first time the entire art duties (pencils, inks, colours) are done by me.

Here’s a Newsarama-exclusive preview of next month’s Uncanny X-Men #23 - Original Sin tie-in and chapter one of “The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier” - what Brian Bendis calls “probably the most incendiary X-Men story, maybe ever.”

UNCANNY X-MEN #23
BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (W) • KRIS ANKA (A)
Cover by CHRIS BACHALO
ORIGINAL SIN tie-in!
• Charles Xavier’s last will and testament is discovered.
• But is something concealed within the pages that might be the X-Men’s ultimate undoing?”

Yay for angry Dazzler! Not so yay for blonde Dazzler!… But mostly yay!
Dazzler Redesign #6,723,127… Give or take a few. For the latest CBR X-JamTried to give the blue era some props since I always work off of disco silver. I’m sticking with silver.
