Ah well. Free comics aren't impossible to come by this week, however, as Virgin Comics has an insert teaser for John Woo's 7 Brothers in this week's Onion. This half-size comic by Garth Ennis isn't quite my cup of tea, but it's a clever promotion and a good place to put it. But what caught my little stuffed eye more than everybody kung-fu fighting was the teasers for other Virgin Comics, especially this one for Walk In by Dave Stewart of Eurythmics. Despite the title, I don't think it's about Dave's spacious closets:
Wow. Annie Lennox sure looks great these days, doesn't she?
That's some weird-ass anatomy, though, isn't it? I'm not certain what kind of bra Miss Walk In is wearing, but that's some very serious lifting and separating action. I don't know much about art, but I do know you generally draw the eyes the width of one eye apart. I didn't know, however, that you were s'posed to draw breasts the width of one breast apart. Why, I haven't seen breasts that goofy since Kitty Pryde in the I-still-don't-know-why-it's-titled Mekanix limited series.
Funny, if there's one superhero you think of as not being particularly buxom, it's Kitty Pryde, but apparently she buys her supportive undergarments at the same place as Walk In Girl. Or...ah ha! Here's the answer: both covers are drawn by the same artist, Celia Calle. Whoa. I think I might be afraid to meet Miss Calle.
Oh wait a minute. I forgot one vital element in this post. Lemme post that cover again:
