A Tale of Two Asses: Why Can’t Comics Learn?
Let’s walk through the scenario - A large comic publisher seems to have an opportunity or desire to expand their readership to include more women and thus increase revenue. They issue a cover that shows one of their female characters in a highly sexual pose with a distorted ass.
You may think I am discussing this week’s web explosion over Milo Manara’s variant of the first issue of Spider-Woman. But I could just as well be discussing the 0 issue of Catwoman from two years ago.
Ladies, I read comics as a young girl and this type of art is just one reason as to why I have a distorted body image STILL at the age of 31. Manara, how the HELL you gonna draw a woman that has an ass that looks like a separate pair of bountiful breasts? I have NEVER seen an ass that looks like that and if you have, you’ve seen some fucked up shit.
Come together, comic book lady readers. NO WAIT come together ALL comic book readers and don’t buy into this bull shit. I’m all about being sexy but come on. This is absurd.
