So that’s what people are talking about when they say “smh”…
"Is this the power you seek?"
This is an alternate cover of Spider-Woman #1 (the other cover by Greg Land has been on this blog earlier).
I assume in this issue, Spider-Woman fights a villain who makes decoys of heroes using plasticine, but he forgot to factor in that people’s clothes aren’t bodypaint, and he messed up her head positioning.
Oh wait, this is Manara?
WELL WHAT THE HELL DID THEY EXPECT HIRING MANARA TO DO A COVER.
The dude draws porn. It’s like his trademark in the comic world.
Actually maybe that was exactly what they expected :/ Who had that bright idea??
It was probably intentional. Everybody knows the interior artist just traces from porn screenshots. He doesn’t even slightly try to hide it.
Also he can’t draw black people.
Or hips. When I say he traces, I mean faces and parts of a pose, but it ain’t a lady until her hips are 2/3 the width of her shoulders. EMPOWERING.
If you grow up the type of woman men want to touch,
you can let them touch you.
Sometimes it is not you they are reaching for.
Sometimes it is a bottle. A door. A sandwich. A Pulitzer. Another woman.
But their hands found you first. Do not mistake yourself for a guardian.
Or a muse. Or a promise. Or a victim. Or a snack.
You are a woman. Skin and bones. Veins and nerves. Hair and sweat.
You are not made of metaphors. Not apologies. Not excuses.
