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 know the instinct is to feel bad for Black Widow for breaking her spine, but actually, Hawkeye’s the one in trouble: he’s about to go splat while Black Widow will spin like a helicopter and fly away to safety.

I tested my hypothesis 

I’m pretty sure I regret this

(inspired by this)

This is hilarious and awesome.  xD  To see the rest of gingerhaze’s project to replace superheroines with Hawkeye, see this tag.

So that “turn female characters into Hawkeye” thing I linked to has now apparently turned into a full blown thing, which is awesome. xD  For those that don’t know about it:

That’s the tumblr for it and

http://kotaku.com/5965037

That’s the Kotaku article about it. :)

It also makes me happy that a lot of pictures from the Escher Girls archives are there. :D  Part of why I made this blog is so that whenever people needed images like this, there’s a handy archive for it, and I’m glad people are using it!

You mean something like that?  (Just pretend that’s Hawkeye).

Oh my god that expression of hers you chose.

Jumping on the Hawkeye bandwagon here. Someone specifically asked for the Rob Liefield picture.
How do I shot anatomy?

The sad part is even with that level of snakey, he’s still like twice the mass and half the bent of the original.  Also, I think he needs pyramid pecs.

Paul Sizer’s HAWKEYE INITIATIVE submission
I love your Tumblr, and I wanted to share my take on poor Hawkeye having to pose in the manner of comic women, like Red Monika from BATTLECHASERS as drawn by Joe Mad!

OMG that’s great.  His pec isn’t as odd as her breast, but still, awesome.
