Guillem March Tells You How To Draw The Muscles On Wonder Woman's Legs

Superman Wonderwoman cover

Guillem March has been breaking down the cover to Superman/Wonder Woman #3 cover that caused a certain amount of controversy on release.

Notice post-coital Superman, who must have expended a lot of "energy" here judging by the super-stain on his pants, is absorbing solar radiation to "recharge," while Wonder Woman appears to have visited Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon for a nose job, and had her eyes replaced with those of a Japanese anime sex doll. – The Outhouse.

So what was happening 10 minutes before the moment depicted in this Superman/Wonder Woman #3 variant cover by Guillem March?

And in space no less!? – Newsarama

Let's ignore that March still draws his characters as if human anatomy is a loose guideline. Let's ignore WTF is going on with Wonder Woman's legs. Let's ignore that Wonder Woman is drawn with more make-up than a Khadashian. Let's ignore the fact that they have Wonder Woman apparently wrapping herself in Superman's cape which is basically one of the most iconic Lois Lane images ever. But, hey, maybe it's not his cape. Maybe it's hers. Oh wait, she doesn't wear one. Okay, maybe it's a sheet. You know because they just came across one in space. Space sheets – now in aisle one at Target.

But what I can't ignore is the cliched gendered poses they've gone with. – DC Women Kicking Ass

Well, on the leg point, Guillem March would like you to see what muscled women's legs actually look like. We're talking heavy on the calves…


But he also looks at the covers that could have been..

I'm guessing the "Hey, Don't Look At Me" cover with Superman on the Daily Planet logo staring at Wonder Woman's butt was just too much for DC?

Here is the Superman-added version of issue 3's cover that they went with. Interesting, the original sketch wouldn't have been interpreted as an "I've just had sex in space" shot at all, would it? More like "I've just been flashing Greenwich Observatory."
