    You make a good point.
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    And wasn't there a pinkish/fleshtone costume exactly like this one? I think that one looked even worse!

    I love this thread, but I'm running out of popcorn.

    While you have to be a bit of an old timer, X-Men #4 has a bit of this.

    While I know this doesn't meet the criteria, I'm just going to leave this here and not get into how problematic (I love that catch-all term) this thread is...

    A combined thread of that type would have the advantage of showing a wide range of the ways in which artists portray attractiveness, whether or not they are said to "objectivize" (lunkheaded word) the subjects.

    It does seem to me rather inevitable that you're going to see female subjects given more attention as long as there are more actual hetero artists in the business. It's not a big conspiracy as such, unless you want to call human reproductive nature a conspiracy.

    It's more to do with the market than the artists, IMO. If female readers suddenly the majority, you would be amazed how many panels spotlighting male butts would pop up all of the sudden.

    I'm surprised no one has used the semi-famous or maybe infamous Naked Lion Wrestling in the Doom mini series a while back. There was a whole thread devoted to in before the board was rebooted. And before anyone asks, no....I didn't start the thread.

    It's something of a chicken-and-egg situation: hetero male artists draw a lot of the characters because they can appeal to a base of hetero male readers.

    If a wealth of female readers thought they could find something relevant to their sexual interests, some artists would probably attempt to meet that perceived need. A "paranormal romance" comics line would be the sort of thing at which comics might excel, but one would have to overcome a long-standing cultural presence that comic books ought not to be overtly erotic.

    That would be cool too. I think a couple a of rules would have to be established though to keep thing balanced.

    @Iron Maiden: The panels for the Doom mini remind me a lot of the panels for a manga series called Red River. There's a scene in there where two of the male leads are in the river bathing and then they come out to deal with someone trying to kill them and you have a black shadow discretion shot in the front but the back side gives you plenty of butt shots.

    Mean time in regard to a thread on this, would it be allowed for Eastern comics as well. A number of female artist and writers in Manga do give, well to use an old phrase, eye candy of males in several shojo and Josei (girl and women) books, not to mention female artist that know girls are reading boys (shonen) comics and in the Seninen (men) books. There's also male artist/writers that add stuff in for women knowing that they read the books and try to at least include a few "pretty" male characters to appeal to the female demographic. Usually they're the rivals and such.

    How about alternate reality Hercules and Wolverine? They were a couple.
