Catwoman's Impossibly Contorted Cover Draws Criticism

catwoman-contorted-cover.jpg

This is the new cover of DC Comic's Catwoman #52, which is drawing criticism because it looks like she's just an ass with tits and a head. Oh right, I forgot -- because realistic human anatomy has been such a staple in comics lately. What's the big deal? If Catwoman wants to look like Ice T's wife Coco, I say let her -- I'm not here to judge. Well, not publicly anyways. What a f***ing freakshow. See? That was just my brain talking. After we post this what do you say we Google some fossil p0rn? Shit! *pounding button to turn off telekinesis machine*

Thanks to ChaosLex, who saw a girl arch her back like this at the circus once before climbing into a 2' x 2' plexiglass box. Man, those contortionists freak me out (I can't even touch my toes).

There are Comments.
  • Yeah. I really think this was either some extremely elitest artists that drew in criticism for competitive reasons, or a femist of some sort trying to make this seem like its just "An ass with tits and a head" to make it seem like the provocative pose is offensive some how. Because you know, Cat woman's character is absolutley never provocative. To be honest If someone hadn't pointed it out it would have never struck me as "Impossibly contorted".

    at least she's not jumping from rooftops wearing stilettos this time.

    Rob Liefeld has been around for more than a decade doing 10 times worse than this, and people Paid for more... This is nothing.

    Hah.
    1: I've seen a similar position loads of time. Usually in porn. Usually when she's taking it from behind.
    2: Read the comic. It's sexist friendly worse than any cover. She's a horrible character that's constantly ready to break down and cry, goes into emotional rollercoasters, and tosses her vagina at everyone.

    Ass with tits and a head and someone's complaining? Ass with tits and a head!!!

    OMG its called foreshortening, anyone who revues or creates comics should know that.

  • GreyGanado

    Her cleavage is actually one of those novelty shirts with boobs printed on them.

  • afterooster

    has anyone seen a male character in comics? Most are more distorted than this.

  • Nate Barrett

    That's not #52, it's #0 due out this September. They're not even to #10 on the new run yet so...yeah, definitely not 52.

  • eightcell

    Speaking of realism if there was a machine reading your thoughts it would be a "telepathy machine" not a "telekinesis machine". Agreed though people get worked up over nothing.

  • It doesn't look impossible. Improbable possibly. Maybe unnecessary too.

  • Azariel_z

    Check.
    Check.
    "unnecessary?" let me think about it...

  • Kaity

    I was so excited for this comic and as a female reader it has been nothing but let down after let down.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    That is not an impossibly contorted position. I am sure there are many women out there that can pose exactly like that. In fact, I am willing to bet there are some female Geekologie readers out there that can hit this pose and send us all a photo of it to prove it's very possible. So women of Geekologie the gauntlet has been thrown.

    ......(clothing optional)....

  • ass and tittays! ass and tittays! booty booty booty booty booty everywhere!

  • Crucial

    I hope that by clothing optional you mean a sweet catwoman costume

  • Yeeeeah...no.

  • you try it.

  • I'd tap- I mean buy that. And keep it in my secret stash. Forever.

  • dingus

    fucking feminism...
