Tandra Page 967, January 20, 2008

Visit : http://tandra.com 

I‘m in love! That has probably always been the case. But meeting Kenia again after so many years only affirms what has always been obvious. I love this woman! Certainly she’s a full scale bitch with less moral restraint than Hillary Clinton and she will slit your throat for the most trivial of reasons. She abandoned her son in a futile quest to save an empire that was already lost beyond hope and she married a man she cared nothing for with the same purpose in mind. But through it all she remained true to her heritage and fought to the last gasp of breath and the last measure of her strength to preserve a failed dream. Whatever else may be said of her, the woman has courage! And I love her!

She is older now, of course. This is a thing that does not often happen with comics characters. You will notice, if your memory is up to the task, her hair is no longer the bright yellowed blonde it was in her earlier appearances, and there are lines beneath her eyes and at the corners of her mouth. There are also other signs of age. Gravity has dragged down her body. But she still wields a mean blade and anyone who comes expecting to enjoy her favors by force had best think again.

I have always had this thing about the women many comics writers choose for their heroes. They can best be exemplified by the Dale Arden character in the comic feature Flash Gordon. As can best be determined, Dale exists for the single purpose of providing Flash with a convenient female to rescue on a regular basis. She is also around to remind Flash just how wonderful and heroic he is and to also pitch a jealous hissy fit any time another woman is written into the strip. A good many comics ladies are variations on this theme and the question immediately springs to mind, what kind of hero would find interest in such a creature and what good is she?

My personal preference is for a lady of her own mind and with her own path in life such that the hero is forced to exert some effort to attract her attention and even more to hold her interest once she has taken the trouble to notice his existence. A hero to my mind is much more heroic if he is able to hold the love of a woman of character. Kenia, whatever else may be said of her, is certainly a woman of definite character and it is only a man of firm stature who may arrest her affection and may hold onto it. Life with this woman would be an adventure of itself!

Which brings us to David Galon, last seen as the Wizard Ring collapsed and fell to the surface long years ago. Not only was he involved with a one way ride into oblivion, but he had been so damaged in the one sided battle with arch foe Lord Kilthane his prospects for continued survival were rather dismal at best, so...what is going on here in the final panel of Tandra Page 967? Have I pulled a fast one? Am I playing fast and loose with your willing suspension of disbelief?
