Amanda Conner’s Art Appears in Latest Episode of The Big Bang Theory
On last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, comic book fans may have spotted a piece of artwork by Amanda Conner, one of the most popular artists in the comic industry.
The piece in question was called “Girl on a Leash,” and it was drawn by Conner and colored by Paul Mounts. And we absolutely, swear to God, that most comic books are not as fetish-y as this pinup.
The pinup appeared as part of the subplot of Stuart (Kevin Sussman) trying to figure out how to bring female customers into his comic book shop before he awkwardly hit on Amy (Mayim Bialik) the moment she showed even the slightest sympathy for him. Oh…and the diagnosis was that Stuart’s creepy behavior scares off women. That’s pretty typical for The Big Bang Theory’s representations of geeks and women. Way to go, show.
But for their part, Conner and Mounts were very excited to see their work on television. And just to be clear, there is no “Girl on a Leash” comic book. It was just a one-off illustration for the show.
WooHoo! I have artwork that’s gonna be on the Big Bang Theory tonight. SO. RIDICULOUSLY. EXCITED. Eeeeeeee!
