Cissy Koomen Declares Her Love for T&A

cissy3My name is Cissy Koomen, I am 42, I live in the Netherlands and am a comic reader. A comic reader? Not a Geek, or Nerd, or collector? Well, yes, yes and no. I read comics, I collect the ones I like (of course) but do not go out of my way to get EVERYTHING there is on a series, run or character nor for writers or artists. I am not Rockefeller, I have to make choices.

For me the fun started when I was 16 and my boyfriend in those days showed me his comics; X-Men and Wolverine. I immediately fell in love and never looked back!

Now, this was way back in the 1980’s, when comics were soaring in the Netherlands and we could get them on every corner. So I never looked past the normal bookstores and supermarkets, therefore always staying in the fringes and having just the ‘normal’ (mainstream superhero) comics on my shelves. This changed when the decline of the sales set in somewhere in the 1990’s. I had to travel to get my weekly comic fix and found out there was actually another kind of store out there: the specialized comic stores that sold ONLY comics! A Brave New World opened up to me, and so I found the genre I (secretly) liked best: T&A comics.

Now, for a woman in my environment this was, and mostly still is, a red flag that someone reading this kinda stuff must be gay. I am not. But whenever I’d got friends over and they saw posters on the wall of a gorgeous Crimson beauty like Scarlet Thinbault X, or a beauty from Danger Girl or Gen13, they must’ve thought that something was wrongly wired in my brain. Right? So I hid my quaint little obsession and stuck with the more mainstream comics. At least, in public, in my direct surroundings, in my house where peeps could see I loved comics but not shock them into oblivion with all the gorgeousness that I’m passionate a bout and is actually out there.

cissy2But more gorgeousness came into my life and the T&A genre came out of the hidden corners of the comic stores and began to flash itself on the front shelves, for all to see. And, me, in my mid 30s, decided to screw society and come out of hiding as well: I dig chicks like Red Sonja, Lady Death, Scarlet Thinbault X, Vampirella, Aspen, Witchblade and so on. Why? Because they are strong women that know what they want and go for it!

And so it is, was and will forever be. T&A is not about porn, it is not about sex fantasies, although something lush like Tarot can make the blood boil.

These T&A comics ALWAYS show strong women. Could that not be done without the bare skin? Without the huge tits? Without the supermodel-jealous-making-form? Sure it can. Look at strong women like Storm and Rogue from the X-Men. Look at Wonder Woman, Harlequin and Poison Ivy. There are plenty of gorgeous babes out there without any in-your-face T&A . But why settle for that when you can have Raven Hex from Tarot?

cissy5I say: T&A for the win!

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
