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 work at a LCS, and when this cover showed up in the week’s new releases, the urge to draw a certain parallel just would not go away…
If I could’ve printed out a high-quality colour print of the Mile High Club poster and put it in front of the cover without repercussions from work, I’d have done it so fast. As it is, my little piece of paper stayed up for a decent chunk of the evening. Unfortunately, it was not busy and hardly anyone was around to see. If a feminist makes a statement in an empty room, does she make a difference? :P

Very fitting!  Those are some intense vacuum-sealed boobsocks in the Danger Girl/GI Joe cover.
