A blog dedicated to analyzing comics from a feminist perspective and promoting female comics creators and positive portrayals of women in comics.


There’s nothing wrong with making art to titillate — that is the entire point of porn and erotica, after all — but it should above all be honest about what it is trying to do, and who it is trying to do it for. Superhero comics often ends up looking a lot like a really specialized form of erotica aimed exclusively at straight men, which is fine if it’s trying to be erotica aimed exclusively at straight men, but can be a pretty strange experience if you’re showing up for action-adventure tales of fantasy and drama that are intended to appeal to a wide audience for non-erotic reasons.
