Okay, so we've seen quite a lot from a certain Italian artist drawing a certain female arachnid of late. And with such sexual exploitation, there needs to be an attempt to redress things.
Taking a bunch of images from the Marvel Swimsuit Special from twenty years ago and giving the images Marvel's new trade dress is all very well. But what about the actual comics? Could we even get a teensy weensy bit of balance?
Thankfully Batman/Superman is all up in that today with a Superman and Batman stripped of their memories and dumped in Gotham. Batman is in his Batsuit, very handy that, but Superman is dressed in what he landed on Earth the first time…
And is subject to the most clichéd of pick up lines, especially crass given his current presumed condition.
Seriously Catwoman, don't you ever put it away? This is an apparently vulnerable man in a vulnerable condition, you could show a little decorum, respect or consideration. You know they'll be writing graffiti about you if you keep this up.
Too late. But even after all that, the fellow still wants to help.
What a doormat! At least he found a handy scrap of red material, I mean this guy doesn't even sleep naked – as we discover in Superman #34 also out today.
Or course for an even more naked Superman, you might just need this week's Futures End… more on that later.
And although on the cover of her own book, Catwoman's own costume is starting to disappear, inside the comic, she stays very covered up….
And if you need a little balance back the other way? Well that is what Darwyn Cooke is for over in the final issue of All Star Western…
And Jimmy, with Amanda Conner and Marco Failla are doing similar in Harley Quinn today as well.
Is it skinny dipping day in the DC universe and nobody told me?
Batman/Superman #12 by Greg Pak and Jae Lee from DC Comics is published today.
