The dark blot on June Brigman's career

Artist June Brigman, whose past credits include Power Pack for Marvel, was at the SDCC on Friday, where she got an Inkpot award, and towards the end, a major disappointment of a revelation turns up:
Brigman wrapped up her spotlight panel by showcasing illustrations from a number of recent projects as well as some personal art and sketches. "The 99" was a book she drew for Kuwaiti company Teshkeel Media Group, but it's not the only work she's done with ties to the Middle Eat. "Aramco Magazine," which Brigman described as the Saudi Arabian version of "National Geographic," has also commissioned her services in recent years.
I wasn't fully aware before that she'd ever made contributions to a propaganda vehicle for a belief system that hurts women, but now that I know, I'm hugely disappointed with her for lending her services all for a paycheck. It's disturbing, and downright embarrassing.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
