Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

I don’t know if this is escher material since she’s not all twisted about, but…what.
I was trying to imagine the several explanations for what might be going on underneath her, and they ranged from hilarious to horrifying.

A skeleton with boobs.  Is she meant to be entirely skeletal or just her face (like Ghost Rider) and hands? 
Either way, it reminds me of this:

Boobs (especially large ones) are such an important marker of femaleness in comics, that apparently they need to be there even on corpses… or skeletons. 
Also reminds me of this submission.

    Because she’s Death. She can look however she wants, and looks however the dead person chooses to see her. Deadpool in...

    I have to correct this. In the comic, Deadpool sees Death as “attractive” as a more of an inward metaphor of him...
