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.

It’s like the artist just got bored when he got past her waist.  (What’s holding them up by the way?)

There are an infinite number of things that are wrong with this picture, not the least of which is that she may not have any genitals, all of her body mass appear to have gone to that one leg and apparently women have to be sexualized even during brutal death scenes.

Here’s another one to add to the pile. You might think about adding a Zenescope tag because pretty much all their titles are like that (or at least the covers). I don’t think I’ve ever seen an overweight or unattractive woman grace their pages. It’s like they don’t exist in the Zenescope universe.

Sadly, I don’t think they exist in DC or Marvel’s universes either.  It is pretty cruel of that grey guy though, to pose his victims after he’s snapped their backs.

In death, they are even creepier than in life.

Woman unconscious. Woman orgasming in porn.  *shrug* What’s the difference?
