Remember this fun movie? Available at youtube for only $1.99.
A fun Friends/Guardians of the Galaxy Mashup is here! Enjoy!
A little over a month ago, the casting news of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, sent a stir through the Internet almost as bad as Ben Affleck playing Batman. I think it’s time to get over that.
I remember feeling the same when they cast Christian Bale as Batman for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. So, if you want my input. I say let’s give it a shot. At first, I was skeptical. Now I’ve accepted it, and I’m ready to move on.
I know, I know.. She’s no Lynda Carter.
Dear Hipcomix Facebook Fan:
Facebook is apparently about to ratchet down organic exposure of page content to 1-2% at best. Valleywag reported it last week based on an anonymous and internal source with Facebook marketing. It has since been reported by the likes of Time and others.
Ogilvy & Mather has even tested and found that organic brand page content on Facebook was exposed to about 12 percent of those that “Like” the brand in October. That number dropped to six percent by February. Facebook is basically eliminating the chance your pages’s content will be seen by your Facebook fans. Unless, of course, you pay to have it exposed.
What many of you may not know is we already pay Facebook a lot of money each month so that more people see our content. Yet if they move forward with racheting down organic exposure of page content to 1-2% we will not be able to get enough traction for it to make sense for us to continue paying.
At that point, if nothing changes, we would likely stop or tone down our efforts (since why bother if no one see’s or reads your work)!
However, if you do like our content you can:
1. Visit our facebook page each day by going to: https://www.facebook.com/Hipcomix
2. Visit our web page every day at: http://www.hipcomix.com
3. Go to our deviantArt page at http://hipcomix.deviantart.com/
4. Follow us on Twitter
Unfortunately, you can no longer control if you get all the posts or not. It’s now under Facebook’s control.
One other thing you can do to help us is to share our content. If you share a post, Facebook considers that post as coming from you so it will increase the exposure of the content. Please share a lot!!!
Justice League: War – A Review.
I’m just going to go ahead and say it. I don’t know how many times DC comics is going to try to sell us an origin story. Maybe it’s a directive from Warner Bros., I really have no idea. Whatever it is, it’s getting old. Within the last 25 years I’ve seen them reboot Spiderman twice, Batman twice, and Superman three times. On a side-note, I have yet to see a Wonder Woman movie once.
Which brings me to Wonder Woman in this movie. My largest complaint. They really need to decide how they want to portray her. Either she’s an obnoxious warrior, or she’s a helpful naïve pushover. In this version, she’s an obnoxious warrior. I liked the Lynda Carter portrayal of her best. Please keep her that way. Also, Please, pick a costume. Superman and Batman have only had slight modifications. I’ve seen wonder woman’s costume redesigned probably 16 times since I was a child.
When I was growing up, DC comics was always the heroes that fought evil. Marvel comics spent their entire episode dealing with internal issues. If I wanted to read a teenage heartthrobs story, I would grab a Marvel comic. If I wanted to read stories about a hero dwelling on his internal struggle of not being able to have a girlfriend because he was a hero, I would choose a Marvel comic. If I wanted to see a hero break a giant robot into two pieces I would choose a DC comic. However, nowadays the lines are so blurred because DC is spending its time trying to copy Marvel comics. The worst struggle Sup had was whether to tell Lois. Batman’s? Daddy issues, but they didn’t dwell on the internal thoughts allllllll through episode after episode. Marvel does. Well, now DC does too. Ugh.
With that said, I can continue my review. It’s obvious with this newest addition to the Justice league lineup, that Warner Bros./DC Comics was trying to capture the comedic banter between the heroes that “The Avengers” so triumphantly succeeded in last summer’s blockbuster. However, the bantering between the Dark Knight and Green Lantern fell far short the cleverness that The Avengers seamlessly delivered.
To sum up this review, I will summarize my complaints. Please stop selling us origin stories. This is probably the fifth or sixth time I’ve read how they’ve come together. Pick it up already… we know how they all began.
Stop changing their costumes. They’re not a baseball team. It’s fine to modernize, but it does more harm than good to try to reinvent the characters look. It just makes the die-hard fans angry.
In closing, although slightly entertaining, Justice League: War was a dismal failure. Next time a little more ass kicking and a little less ass kissing.

Congratulations to Scarlet Lass, winner of the 2013 Character Creation contest sponsored by MitruComix!
We received a lot of entries, and it was incredibly difficult to pick a winner.
Scarlet Lass will be featured in an upcoming adventure from Mitru Comix, and his new Hip Gals series this winter, exclusively on Hipcomix!
I had a really nice talk tonight with a female member on our Facebook page. When she asked if she could talk to me about the posts, I was like “Uh oh” I pissed off a women’s rights activist. However, it wasn’t like that. Not one bit. It was a lovely conversation.
She started by asking what the comics and this page was about… what we stood for. I explained to her that we love bondage, peril and “How will she escape?” storylines. She responded in kind, and asked if we did this because we liked to see women abused. I was a little put back by that question.
Here was my response.
“The world of Hipcomix is not tangent with the real world. The ‘heroines’ are bondage, danger, sex, thrill seekers, and we write them that way. In the comics, we put our characters on a pedestal. They are our creation. We love them. We write the into peril. We write them into danger… but then we write their rescue. We give them victory. No, we don’t like or support the abuse of women. We do however, offer an alternative reality in where the villains can be ravenous , and the heroines can be ravaged. It’s all in good fun. We are a ‘Catch and release’ bondage and peril comic company.”
Her response “Thank you for your time. I just needed to make sure I wasn’t supporting women haters. I’ll be signing up tonight.”
I asked her if I could post this, she said yes. I felt this was important to share. We have a lot of female members in this facebook page, and I wanted to share this conversation with everyone so the people here knew our creed.
No.. we don’t hate women, we adore them, admire them and wish to push the limits of pleasuring them. We wish to see no harm come to them in reality. However, We would like to create an alternative reality though where we can experience the limits pushed. A reality where no victim is created.
That is Hipcomix.
Last week, I received a notice that Pret-a-3d was accepting all submissions to their deviantart gallery, so I submitted a raw version of this image. Raw meaning with the reality tag instead of the Hipbondage tag.
It was rejected because he said it was obscene. Below this picture I’m posting a image that’s a comic book page. Someone please tell me the difference as far as a “rating”. Both are PG.
So I accused Paolo of rejecting it on taste. It’s not obscene. Unless of course DC comics is now in the obscene image business. So he HAD to have rejected it on taste.
I’m upset. Paolo has offended what I guess is his base clientele in fear of offending major studios which now have taken an interest in his software. He’s forgetting about his original customer base. I’m willing to bet a majority of us don’t use his software to render pots and pans, so I’m talking about us that use it for nudes and similar.
So I’m boycotting Paolo for 2 reasons. He put Poser people in front of us that use Daz Studio, and now he’s turning his back on the artists who took a chance on him in the beginning, and used his software. You know us perverts I guess.
Below is my horribly offensive image. and something the equally perverted DC comics had in their children’s comic book. (detect the sarcasm?)
Tonight from Approx 7pm till 11pm CST, the server hosting hipcomix, MCcomix, and hipbondage went down. We were able to get it up and running again without failure. Please accept our apologies for the hassle.
Well, it’s really not, but let’s talk about this site.
I’m very happy with all three of the sites right now. Hipcomix, Hipbondage and McComix. I think we got some great artists. It’s going to be a fun summer!
I made this site so there was an off site web location to let other people know what was going on, in case the site went down, and so I can blog a little about stuff. Today it’s this.
Thanks for reading!
