Is This Gratuitous? Catwoman #70
So here I am.
As a huge fan of Adam Hughes' art, and as someone that knows he draws the ladies a bit gratuitous to begin with, I was a bit unsure about selecting this cover. What made me finally decide to is the pose. Catwoman is doing a bit of a Janet Jackson imitation. The only thing different is the lack of men's hands and the fact that she is wearing a top. Otherwise, that is what this cover reminded me of.
I was a bit surprised at how exagerated her proportions were compared to normal as well. It made me wonder if this was a bit over the top. As an Amazons Attack crossover, I was very surprised not to see another woman on the cover pointing a spear at Selina or doing something with a weapon. The basic nature of this cover caught me off guard.
I have to ask you: Is this gratuitous?
