Jenna the Vampire Slayer

posted by on July 25 at 13:44 PM

My two favorite things, porn and comics, have formed an unholy alliance. Today, at the San Diego Comic-Con, Virgin Comics (haw!) announced that uber-mega-porno-superstar Jenna Jameson will star in her own graphic novel, titled Shadow Hunter.

According to the press release:

Shadow Hunter is the story of a provocative superheroine who survives a brush with death only to find herself fighting the legions of hell for her very soul. The story, while provocative and sexy, contains no nudity and is intended for a mainstream audience.

What what what??? No nudity? Legions of hell? Mainstream audience?

“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Virgin to bring this story to life, first as comics and eventually in film and other formats,” said Jenna Jameson. “Working with comics is creatively liberating – everything is possible. My character is sultry, sexy and kicks ass!’

I love it when celebrities half-heartedly endorse comics. Has Jenna ever picked up a comic before in her life? Do you think she’s a Marvel girl or a DC girl? Does she know that Batman could totally beat Superman in a fight?

I plan to ask her these questions, and many more this Friday when she’s kinda sorta in town.

Kinda sorta in town? Is she leaving her boobs or something?

A transition to comics makes sense, if she still want to be in the public eye. Have you seen what she looks like in real life, nowadays?

She looks like something that eats people's souls.

Why does she have cross-stitching in her hair? Is it supposed to look tuff?

Virgin Comics has been absolutely terrible. I saw one titled "The Sadhu," and I was instantly intrigued. I've been reading about sadhus for years, and they've always fascinated me. They live on the ghats among cremated bodies and use human skulls as their begging bowls. They bless weddings and no one will offend them, since they'll curse you as well, and they engage in bizarre rituals to achieve moksha, like keeping one hand in the air for twenty years until the fingers shrivel into stumps, or they cease sitting or laying down. It was written by an Indian, so I figured there'd be authenticity, maybe some badass sadhu driving out British soldiers with his trident and the powers granted him by the gods.

What did I get?

The hero and the villain were both white, both English, and India and the Indians were fucking backdrops, basically irrelevant to the story. It was the kind of thing Mudede could write a book about.

Batman beat Superman? Ha! I think not!

Yeah, as nonsensical as it may be, he did.

Let's just hope they use the hot Jenna from the late 90's and not the new underweight, over plastic Jenna of recent days. Have you seen her recently? She is starting to look like the cat lady with her pulled face and syringe filled lips! She used to be uber hot, now she's just a hot mess.

She actually has a Lady Death tattoo, I believe so yeah, she has held at least one comic book.

@5: Batman beats Superman with fair regularity in comics; it's because Batman is always written as being perfect. He's got a plan for EVERYTHING.

...which is probably why I don't read Batman stuff very often, with the exception of Simone's run on Birds of Prey, which has just been delightful.

@5 Yes indeed, because Batman is so fucking smart. That, and Superman gave him a kryptonite ring in case he ever lost control.

It's nice to see that there are other geeks on Slog.
