| SUICIDE BLONDE
BEST COMIC WRITING OF 2003
BY CINESCAPE MAGAZINE
Chris and artist George Broderick, Jr., began collaborating on
SUICIDE BLONDE in the pages of COMIC LIBRARY INTERNATIONAL #7 - BIG
SPACE COMICS in 2001, they had no idea that it would be such a sci-fi
cult favorite among fans of the genre or that a mere two years later
CINESCAPE MAGAZINE would be awarding it honors as the BEST WRITTEN
OF 2003! The magazine originally announced the win via an e-mail press
release during the Summer, but made it more than official in issue # 74
when it published photos and a Q&A with Chris and the other winners
of its annual contest.
“I was surprised to win CINESCAPE MAGAZINE’s award for the BEST COMIC
WRITER OF 2003 , but I wasn’t surprised that it was with SUICIDE
BLONDE,” Yambar stated. “George and I put a lot of thought and creative
sweat into this title. The
project was extremely personal
for us and I think that it shows.
"I’m glad that our efforts were taken more seriously than most of the
bad/good girl comics out there today. Rather than be exploitive, George
and I set out to create a character that was just as intelligent and
individually empowered as she was beautiful to look at. We’ve had a
of positive response to the character from female readers who are glad
to see the direction of the series. Readers are catching a lot of the
social and political commentary of SUICIDE BLONDE as well. I’m glad
that some saw beyond the yummy chocolate coating and got to the
free prizes hidden inside. That alone was prize enough.”
Chris and George were further honored for their efforts by having
SUICIDE BLONDE act as the official convention shirt mascot of the 2003
Mid-Ohio-Con where the two debuted the second half of the series to
a very enthusiastic convention crowd.
