|Good girl art|
Bad girl art is the superheroine art form genre that emerged during the early and mid-90s and lasted until the mid 2010s.
The first bad girl character was Lady Death, created by writer Brian Pulido and artist Steven Hughes in 1992. Notable bad girls included Razor, created by Everett Hartsoe in 1992; Shi, created by Billy Tucci in 1993; Angela, created by Neil Gaiman in 1993; Rob Leifeld's Glory and Avengelyne, created in 1993 and 1995 respectively; Witchblade, created by Michael Turner in 1995, and the early 90s Harris Comics revival of Vampirella.
The founding artists of Image Comics were a large influence on the visual style of bad girls. Artists such as Jim Balent on Catwoman from 1994 to 1999 and Mike Deodato on Wonder Woman from 1994 to 1995 continued the bad girl visual style during the mid to late 1990s.
