drawing of the day color special: iowa’s mary marvel twin set

It’s no secret that Iowa Ginsberg’s character design is based in part on Fawcett’s immortal Mary Marvel. (All of Kekionga is strongly informed by Fawcett’s Captain Marvel Universe of the 1940s and 50s, but that’s a bigger story.)  Anyway, Iowa and I were looking at this classic cover for a Mary Marvel paper doll set, and I pointed out that she probably wouldn’t be caught dead in any of the outfits.  Nay, nay, said Iowa, and she pointed out that she would personally rock a yellow and black plaid skirt with a process blue twin set with matching anklets and little pompom cap.  And her red Doc Martens.

I should know better by now than to argue with Iowa.
