So I’ve started reading Gail Simone’s run on Birds of Prey and enjoying it greatly. And you know what, if you want to draw butts in taking up 3/4ths of every panel, okay, I can actually handle that pretty well. But JESUS FUCK, ED BENES. WHAT THE…

Oh, we definitely need more female artists, but yeah, a female artist is absolutely no guarantee that you won’t get tons of cheesecake fanservice. I have had female artists who made Ed look like a puritan in comparison, sincerely.

Ms. Simone that may be true. But I have not seen them.


In some cases, it may be because some things get edited before they go to print. The first couple that spring to mind are both great artists, I loved working with them, but the cheesecake was far greater than what Ed does.  Adriana Melo in Rose and Thorn, we had to change a LOT of poses that were not supposed to be sexualized.  Adriana is a fantastic artist but some of the stuff came to us looking very, very sexualized at inappropriate times.

The other in the front of my mind is Joyce Chin, whom I worked with on Vampirella/Magdelena/Witchblade. GREAT artist, but holy mackerel, even fully clothed, her women carry a parental advisory!

And to google I went. I looked around and…Holy Crap there is a lot of Fan Service in the panels. And a lot of this just comes of as unnecessary cheesecake. It’s a shame that the art is edit before it comes to print.
