Milo Manara's SPIDER-WOMAN #1 Variant Cover Is Bound To Stir Up Controversy

Milo Manara's SPIDER-WOMAN #1 Variant Cover Is Bound To Stir Up Controversy

But then, that's the point isn't it? Manara (who is known for his overly sexualized/erotic artwork) has put out a really good variant cover for Marvel's upcoming Spider-Woman relaunch. Really good? Try ASStounding! (sorry). Take a look after the jump.

CBR have posted a list of Marvel's Spider-verse solicitations for 2014, and among them was this little beauty below. Yeah sure the horny fanboys will love it, but with the major comic companies (apparently) serious about making a conscious effort to depict their female characters as more than just sex objects...well, Manara's cover doesn't exactly move things forward.

Oh, and here's the slightly less pervy regular cover from Greg Land:
