Read full description of the books:
the 90s were an interesting time for mainstream comics. and by "interesting" I mean shitty. well not completely but there were some trends that were so cringey that I almost had to take a break from one of my favorite nerdy passions.
Offender Number One was Rob Liefield. he helped to usher in a new era of mindless violence, mindless narratives, and art that made every male look like Hulk Hogan in disco drag and every woman look like a sex puppet for junior high school boys. he had his respectable accomplishments, here and there, but basically he was what one calls the worst. such a pernicious influence on comics.
on the other hand there were writer-artists like Jason Pearson. and by "on the other hand" I mean he actually had some talent with dialogue and narrative, and quite a large amount of talent with art. the intermittently published Body Bags is his semi-classic cult hit: a series of stories that made waves whenever he was (and is) able to publish them. Pearson and Liefield are worlds apart as far as talent goes, but they played for the same team.
here's something else about the 90s: it hated this thing called "political correctness". that hate often manifested itself in an in-your-face attempt at triggering and/or hand-jobbing audiences with stereotypes about race, gender, class, culture, sexual orientation, etc et al. much like any God-fearing, red-blooded American male with a certain tendency towards hair-trigger defensiveness, I also have issues with political correctness. namely, I hate that fucking name. it's a misnomer. it shouldn't be about being politically correct, whatever that even means, it should be about being decent, respectful, and empathetic to our fellow fucking human beings because really it's not that fucking hard, right?
so yeah, Body Bags. it's set in some grimy but still colorful near-future world where DARKNESS is de rigueur. or par for the course. or whatever phrase equals predictable. it's a crazy sort of world that features a whole lot of colorful bounty hunters performing a whole lot of contract killing. normally this is my kind of fun because hey who doesn't like contract killing; I've been mentally signing those contracts for years. fun! Jason Pearson feels his cartoony death-lovin' world is also one where he gets to have a leading character who is a 14 year old girl drawn as a porn star. because why not, right? he also gets to indulge in his other interests: sadistic violence, crassly racist stereotypes about low-income black people, fag-hating homophobia, rampant misogyny, a father beating a daughter (our two heroes, aww!), the whole anti-PC works. he also gets to feature a heavily pregnant woman getting a sword rammed into her belly by our father-hero because haha why not, the PC police will get all worked up about this amiright?
how audiences should view his product: a direct quote from fan favorite Jason Pearson: "they need to be able to take the heat. This book is not for the weak." hey Jason Pearson, I know you are the sort of heavily muscled dude who looks scary and probably practices martial arts and keeps up-to-date on all of the latest military weaponry because of course you do... I have a very special secret message for you and your supporters:

also, I'm sorta drunk now because Happy St. Paddy's Day! and I came home with not much to do. just thought you should know that. come fight me, Jason Pearson!
