For the past week everybody talked about the cover of the upcoming Spider-Woman #1.
Some say that she looks like a creepy Michael Jackson or her face & head looks like it's on wrong. At the beginning everybody said it's too sexual. After that, they looked closely at the artwork and said it's bad.
We've seen Spiderman strike similar poses many times in the past. It makes sense for a hero(ine) with spider-like abilities to emulate spiders. I've asked some opinions on Reddit and here's what somebody said: "This isn't just an issue with this cover though. It's really an issue with the way most super-hero(in)es are drawn. Many artists really don't draw clothing right. They basically draw it as if it perfectly followed the contours of human skin. Even when it would stretch over gaps".
BUT: What if Marvel released sexy variant covers for male superheroes? Would you react the same? Take a look.
