What with my regular gig at ComicsAlliance, some of you might’ve forgotten that I stay on my freelance hustle, which is why today, I’m proud to direct your eyes to what I hope is the first of many articles I’ve contributed to the SyFy Channel’s SciFiWire.com! For my first assignment, I was given a pretty enjoyable piece to write: a look back at five decades of catsuits in sci-fi!
It’s meant to be a comprehensive, chronological overview of the skin-tight outfits and what it means about our society that we’ve spent 50 years saying that’s what women are going to wear in the utopian/dystopian/video-gamey future. Which is a fancy way of saying “hey, go look at these pictures of pretty girls and enjoy my jokes about America’s most beloved astrophysicist.”
Seriously though, this was a fun one to write. Not just for the obvious reasons, but because they let me keep the punchline I wanted for the entire article. So here’s hoping I get to do another!
