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.

(All art featured on this blog belongs to their respective artists)

Annie Wu is illustrating the new Batgirl Beyond and looking at the illustration I can’t help but feel satisfied by her design. Truly, and really, satisfied. This is a heroine representing how all heroines should look like. Athletic, tough, will take no crap from anyone, and looks like has an actual spinal cord.
I know that this isn’t a regular Escher girl submission, but I was really happy when I saw this and thought sharing this would make someone else very happy. If only because one of the main DC female characters is finally being turned around.

I don’t think “all heroines” should necessarily look like any one thing, but that cover is indeed very cool. :)
(I didn’t read the OP carefully.  There was phrasing that violated the submission guidelines that I’ve taken out.  Thanks to those who pointed it out.)
