Right, my twitter followers will have seen me gushing about Animal Man recently. I finally read Grant Morrion's run, then devoured the other 60 odd issues in that run. It's awesome. Especially Morrison's run.
One question tho. It's about the first few issues in the first trade. Ellen gets attacked and nearly raped in the woods. The bad guy kills a cat, but the cat's litter survive. Ellen and her daughter take them back home and try to nurse them back to health. Ellen gets very upset when one by one the kitten's die, but then she's then very relieved when one survives.
Now, I don't really pick up on metaphors that often. I only got the Karolina Dean as a lesbian and a living rainbow thing earlier this year when James Ashelford pointed it out to me. So, if you think about certain slang terms for lady bits, and a colloquial name for a cat, am I seeing a metaphor in Ellen's predicament where there is none? Do y'all reckon it was a deliberate metaphor?
And isn't it just a bit crass??
Or is it just me?
