Adam Hughes always did the best Fairchild, at least in my opinion.  The whole Ordinary Heroes TPB is worth the money.

Even as much as Adam's art, I love the writing on Fairchild's character: warm and friendly.<br /><br />(And I love the last caption!)

What was the Wildstorm Comics' Thunderbook, and when did it come out?

It's hard to find pictures of her on the web drawn with any consistant musculature.<br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br />I know that last one doesn't have much muscle, but it's still something that has occurred in my dreams...

Delmo - The Thunderbook was a one-shot, released in 2000, featuring three stories by different writer/artist teams about different Wildstorm characters. Hughes' story "Wham!" was his last published take on Fairchild, thus far. <br /><br />Zimbra1 - You're right, Hughes is absolutely the best artist to ever take on Fairchild. He has a genuine love for the character, which I share. Remember, Fairchild was a petite, nerdish girl (5'3'', I think) who got a massive growth spurt when her powers manifested. Other writers/artists allowed her to become comfortable with her new body, flaunting it and so forth. Hughes always wrote and drew Fairchild as if she was aware of that, and uncomfortable with all the new attention she got from men.<br /><br />Hughes wrote, but didn't illustrate, the "Superman/Gen 13" crossover that's available in TPB. He handed it off to Lee Bermejo, who in my opinion is the second-best Fairchild artist. I can't find a great pic of his art, but here was one cover.<br />
<br /><br />You can't see it there, but Bermejo drew Fairchild with really solid muscles. The third best artist for Fairchild is arguably Art Adams. He tackled her in the "Gen 13/Monkeyman and O'Brien" crossover, which is still the greatest concentration of superhero femuscle in one place, ever. But he wrote almost no dialogue for Fairchild and obviously lavished more detail on Ann O'Brien, who got more and more muscular until he stopped writing stories with the character.<br /><br />I gotta confess, the crappy treatment of the Fairchild character is a sore spot for me. Gen 13 was a smash hit when the miniseries came out, and the original series started off strong, but they lost momentum thanks to issue delays and the boondoggle animated movie (which is really not good, I've seen it). It jumped the shark after Brandon Choi stopped writing it and the reins were handed to John Arcudi and artist Gary Frank. Arcudi wrote a bunch of long, uninteresting arcs, and Frank played down the sexiness that made the series popular. They were replaced around issue 42, and then around issue 56 Adam Warren come on as writer and artist and made probably the best issues of the entire series. When the plug got pulled, Warren killed Fairchild and the rest of the team off. However, Chris Claremont resurrected her (and not the rest of the team) for his ill-fated new Gen 13 series. I believe Fairchild is still alive in Wildstorm continuity, but it's a lame fate for a character that was once in the top 5 or 10 of female comics characters, in terms of popularity.<br /><br />Obviously, I could talk about this all night ...

I'm with DaveW. Gen13 got shafted. But now that I think about it - the only issues I ever enjoyed were Adam Warren's run, his two 3-issue minis on Grunge and on Roxy, as well as Adam Hughes' Wham! and Ordinary Heroes.<br /><br />The rest I didn't care for.<br /><br />I love Wham! though. I think it's really fun. :D
You can see some of my art here, here, and here.

yeah, Fairchild was one of the first comic-muscle-chics I layed eyes on (besides shulkie). And I was also really pleased with the stories. The mini was nice and interesting, and got me to read the regular series. I got tired about issue 50 (the last I bought) and then, i heard the were all killed. I guess they got the 15 minutes hippe. I believe that the change of artists is what made the series fail. There were so many different approachs to the characters, that one could never actually get used to one, that it was suddenly completly changed. <br /><br />I also believe that AH! interpretation is one of the best, and he was able to approach her like Lee and Choi had originally designed her.<br /><br />I feel that she deserved a better fate in the Comic Universe she was trully a FMG case in comics, and she was comfortable with that. That I like.<br /><br />On a side nite, I heard some news about a possible relaunch in 2006. Anybody got any news?<br /><br />I beleive that Ann O'Brien is worth of a different topic around here, what do you think?
