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.

Frank Miller, ladies and gentlemen. I don’t even know how to tag this.
I hope this hasn’t been submitted too often.

Interestingly, I don’t think anybody’s ever submitted it because so many people were turned off by the writing in All-Star Batman and Robin and just tuned it out.
But yeah, it’s a cover that’s entirely Wonder Woman’s butt.

I saw the post about Frank Miller’s Wonder Woman on your blog and thought that these might of interest to someone.

Here’s an article about how Vicki Vale is portrayed in DC Comics’ All-Star Batman and Robin. What I find most interesting are the script notes the writer Frank Miller wrote to Jim Lee (the artist):

And here’s a picture of Vicki Vale from the same album (All-Star Batman and Robin: The Boy Wonder #1), a picture of Vicki Vale after a car accident, and she is about to die:

There’s nothing sexier than broken ribs.

Priorities.
