Here's How Anatomically Impossible That Spider-Woman #1 Cover Is (NSFW?)

A few weeks ago, our pals over at io9 showed the Milo Manara cover illustration for Spider-Woman #1 in all its as(s)tounding opposite-of-majesty. Now, a Redditor did a 3D rendering to show just how ridiculous that pose is, from an anatomical standpoint. Some nudity and a lot of weirdness ahead.

Yeeeeeesh. Torsos, necks, and heads do not work like that.

Marvel's decision to use this particularly porn-y illustration for an alternate cover is pretty tone-deaf. As Rob Bricken over at io9 puts it, "She looks like she's wearing body-paint, and that's a big no-no for an industry still trying to remember that women exist and may perhaps read comics and also don't want to feel completely gross when they do so."

Now that we've seen this pose from another angle, it also looks like she seriously needs a visit to the chiropractor. [Reddit via Oz Mills]

It's all been a huge misunderstanding. Marvel is designing a new line of holiday cards.
