When I think of gratuitous shots of female characters, my mind doesn't wander to the many "boob shots" available. It goes right to this lovely shot of Hawkgirl on the cover of issue #56.
To me this is just sad. Yikes. My husband thinks that maybe I am desensitized to breasts but that shots like this are a whole 'nother level. I have to agree.
Characters that make me cringe right now because of their artistic portrayal are Hawkgirl and Supergirl, but mostly for the outfit created by Michael Turner. As much as I apreciate the legend of Howard Chaykin and have been a fan of his past work, his portrayal of Hawkgirl leaves me cold. Actually, it makes me want to scream and avert my eyes, but that is splitting hairs.
Can I say yikes again?
