What a difference one week makes, eh? I went from Negative Fridays to Elasti-Girl Fridays. Bloggery is so fickle.
At any rate, here's the first salvo of Elasti-Girl Friday. This is the art from the 1990 Who's Who series that was presented as loose-leaf pages with binders so YOU could make your own logical (or completely illogical) order to the entries of your Who's Who. Lorraine Szramski and Alan Smithee teamed up for this art, and I gotta tell you, that's quite a nice retro-modern, glam-pinup take on Rita Farr. Szramski leaves no doubt about Rita's feminine charm, striking a movie poster pose while single-handedly stopping a jet before it could destroy a bustling neighborhood. Down in the bottom right corner, one person is so amazed, his arms disappeared at the elbows!
According to this, Rita clocked in at 5'6" and 126 pounds. Of course, when she's role-playing as the 50-Foot Woman, she's obviously a little taller and a whole lot heavier. We all know it's not nice to talk about a woman's weight though, right?
That's it for this edition of Elasti-Girl Friday. Have a spiffy weekend.
Happy 100th to "Waiting For Doom"!
