More Cover Appreciation: JSA #8 Cover by Ross

JSA 8 Cover by Ross

Wow. Power Girl is crossing her arms over her chest and the focus in not boobage. She looks regal and strong without the cheesecake. I love the muscular arms and thighs, which accentuate the "power" of her name.

Alex Ross has been quite controversial from time to time, but I feel that this is a cover we can all agree kicks ass. Power Girl looks like the hero she is.

I love this. I hope we see a poster of this down the road, because I am framing it and putting it up in my office.

Other than her head being tipped back so far I agree that this is great. It should be made into a poster. Alex uses live models - so his art tends to be a lot more realistic than some of today's other comic book artists.

Lisa, I hadn't noticed her head until you mentioned it! I was so happy that she was looking fierce rather then doing a porn face! :-)

Heh heh.

I do love this, and I agree that Ross' use of live models makes the difference.
