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:
New Ongoing Series/Spider-Verse Tie-In! Jessica Drew has been an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and agent of S.W.O.R.D., an Avenger and so much more. But nothing could prepare her for the multidimensional insanity that is Spider-Verse! A war is brewing, and every spider-character in the multiverse is a target! But being a target is something Jessica Drew just won’t abide. She’s a woman with a mission and with Silk, the newest spider-character on the block at her side, she’ll have to put all her training to the test if she wants to make it out of Spider-Verse alive! SPIDER-VERSE KICKS OFF A NEW ONGOING SERIES! • Dennis Hopeless (CABLE & X-FORCE, AVENGERS: ARENA) and Greg Land (UNCANNY X-MEN) bring you a universe spanning adventure starring Jessica Drew Spider-Woman and the newest spider-hero, SILK!
