Comic art uncovered
Jess McCabe // 11 May 2006
Superhero/ine comics are notorious for cover artwork which objectifies women. Annoyed by this latest example, one blogger has turned the tables, drawing mock superhero covers which objectify their male characters in the same way.
It’s very revealing. Just how incongrous these drawings look is a sign of how much it really is true that superhero covers featuring female characters often position them as nothing more than a slab of meat. Or.. um… paper and crayons.
