Welcome to the Legion!

Hey Legion! Jenna here. You guys responded in huge numbers when we posted the variant cover for Spider-Woman #1 by Milo Manara. Some of you defended the artist and his right to work in his style. Some of you were upset with Marvel for the decision to use his work in the first place when they’re trying to reach out to female fans. (I agree with that, by the way.) Like me, some of you tweeted and commented that, cloth doesn’t work like that! One other criticism was that this particular pose isn’t exactly anatomically correct.

I’ve spent the entire week talking about this from an appearance on Nerd Alert to writing pieces and tweeting, when I wasn’t fielding horrible comments on articles about Anita Sarkeesian and lamenting the rampant sexism that we’re facing in the geek community. I was actually blasted on Google+ for daring to run a piece on the fact that women are now almost half of gamers. How dare I? Seriously, what the hell are you afraid of? No one is taking your toys away!

Anyway, our friend Kim Horcher send me this 3-D rendering of the Spider-Woman cover from a Redditor this morning. Whatever you think of it, it looks pretty painful!

Anyone want to weigh in on this week?
