Artist Showcase: Danielle Corsetto
“Two girls, a bar, and a talking cactus.”
With a tagline like that, how could you not want to read the webcomic Girls with Slingshots? I know I was hooked. I started reading GWS about a year and a half ago and I’m pretty sure I read the first 500 comics in one night. The rest of it was done the next morning. The author, Danielle Corsetto, has a flair for pushing boundaries, but all with a sense of dignity – okay, maybe not so much dignity per se, but you have to admit, each strip is like a shot of vodka. You can’t stop yourself from taking another one just to see how far you can go. Or something like that.
Really, there’s just a lot of booze and sex, so dignity is probably not at all the word I’m looking for. Regardless, it’s an awesome comic drawn by an awesome artist. I got to meet Danielle for a very brief five minutes this weekend at Dragon’s Lair Comics for their webcomic weekend, and when I sadly lamented the fact that there was no McPedro button in the button pack I bought, she actually took the one off of her bag and gave it to me (and warned me not to smell it since her bag always comes into the bathroom with her – true GWS humor). So not only is she a great comic artist, but she’s a pretty freakin’ awesome person in general.
