New Catwoman cover is a vision of ridiculousness
Now, I’m not saying that DC Comics seems to be deliberately driving away female readers, but I can’t think of another way to finish that sentence. In this, its most recent effort to cram as much tits and ass into a cover as possible, the comics company seems intent on providing an extremely uncomfortable position for my favourite feline villain.
I can’t help but wonder if these types of postures would be just as appealing if a man was substituted in for a woman. Fortunately, fantasy author Jim C. Hines beat me to it. The results, while not as spine-warping as the above cover, do reveal that there is a certain bias as to what is considered attractive for the two sexes.
As for the above cover? While I appreciate that sex sells and that people REALLY like tits and asses, I also know that this kind of posture just isn’t practical. After all, it’s no fun trying to fight crime while wearing a back brace.
