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.

Some Silver Age butt and boobs
Poor Carol!  With everything else she had to put up with during the Silver Age, she doesn’t deserve to be torqued around like this on top of it.

I think we’ve figured out why if he loses, he wins, because she had to injure her back to shoot him.

Earth 2 - Where your gay male superheroes are treated just like your female superheroines.

I really hope that this isn’t because he’s now gay.  Though, to be fair, Green Lanterns seem to end up in boobs and butt poses an unusual amount for male superheroes.

You got your reboot in my au.  Based on



Awesome!
(This is part of the draw women in heroic guy poses thing that was suggested a while back by a reader. :)  I think right now people have decided to use Psylocke for the redraws, but I like variety so I encourage people to use whoever they want.)

My first redraw!  When I saw the original cover on Escher Girls I thought that it would be fun to alternate their poses.  So, I flipped the two and used that as a reference for a “new” cover.

It was tough to draw Hal in that pose ugh, and then even Star’s new pose is pretty odd too.  However!  I think I made my point by it.  Please enjoy!

This is great. xD
