In case you were watching The Big Bang Theory Llast night (Spoiler: we weren’t) you may have seen the gnag arguing over a sexist poster in the comics shop they frequent. And you may have guessed that it was the work of Amanda Conner (and colorist Paul Mounts.) The poster was created to show all the sexist cliches you can have in one unfriendly comics shop and Amanda hit them all…but let’s face it, it’s still a lovely piece.
The poster was commissioned especially for the episode, so I guess the producers are Amanda Conner fans…in which case they are lockstep with the rest of the world.
