This is the cover of DC Comics’ upcoming Justice League of America #10. And apparently, making the rounds across chat rooms, message boards, and blogs across the internet, is controversy regarding this picture. I don’t see what the big hubbub is all about. This is nothing new to comics and there have been far worse examples of physical exaggerations (male and female) elsewhere.
This is Michael Turner. This is why he’s a “superstar”. This is why he’s a “hot” artist. He draws T&A. Remember Witchblade, everyone? So it’s odd to me that so many people are upset over this picture when this is his bread and butter and it’s nothing new to comics in general and there were certainly worse examples during the mid-90s “Bad Girl” fad (which Turner had a boob or two in creating).
I’m not offended by the gigantic boobs (hey, in a world of big boobs, Power Girl’s are supposed to be *really* big), I’m just offended that after all these years, Turner STILL can’t draw the human figure correctly. Great line about the Popeye forearms.
