The Cover

Words like "sexist" and "offensive" are being used to describe this cover by artist Milo Manara for the debut issue of a new Spider-Woman. Since the variant cover for the upcoming Spider-Woman #1 was released for publicity, many internet sites are reporting that the cover is inappropriate.

For the life of me, I can’t what the problem is.

It’s Spider-Woman! She’s a spider, so she’s in a spiderlike pose similar to the hundreds of times Peter Parker has been shown in. What’s the problem?

Seriously, look at the picture. I say anyone who find this cover erotic need some serious help. Compared to a normal Vampirella, Witchblade or any comics from Chaos, this is nothing. I mean just look at her costume. You need to be wearing a burka or niqab to be more covered up than Jessica Drew.

Personally, I’m not for the new Spider-Woman series. We don’t need another Spider title on the shelf (even without the upcoming Spidervesus mini) but for all the problems, this cover is not one of them.
