Which cover is illustrator, Dave Dorman describing here?
It seems that in today’s desperate-for-sales comic book market, nothing is sacred. In the midst of world-saving adventures.. What a wholesome, family-friendly image!
I find this image offensive, not only for promotion of a comic book, but specifically for a comic that Brian clearly states that he would like to see today’s younger generation pick up and read as he did when he was kid. Rather than a family-friendly heroic saga, this promo art is telegraphing to the world that it’s a series I cannot share with my 7-year-old son.
Is the comics industry really so dead that they have to stretch to these desperate, shock value measures to incur readers? Really?
Pictures below the fold. (Warning: seriously rapey picture below).
Is it the picture above that Dave Dorman drew for an adult comic book or is it the picture below drawn by artist, Fiona Staples, also, for an adult comic book?
If you guessed the breastfeeding picture is the one that Dave Dorman finds so offensive then move ahead ten spaces because the world is going backwards.
