And this is what happens when you hire an artist know for his erotic art to draw a variant cover for Spider-Woman

Maybe it's a parody of Nicki Minaj's Anaconda album cover?

There is nooooo way that Marvel didn't expect this to happen. Milo Manara is pretty famous for giving his art a sexual bent to it, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he did the same with Spider-Woman. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking his artwork in general, because it's pretty damn good. I just don't like his variant cover. The comic industry needs to stop sexualizing and especially over-sexualizing female characters just because they think it'll lead to more sells. Stop treating your female characters like masturbatory aids, you dumb fucks.

Here are some links to articles on The Mary Sue that can do this more justice than I can.

  1. Indeed, man. Some characters can be portrayed sexily (Emma Frost, Nightwing), but most of them--including Spider Woman--shouldn't be.
