They hired an acclaimed raunchy porn artist and he drew them a porn-y cover like yeah I know people are trying to say “Spider-Man just poses like that it’s not porny” but like, the first image result for Milo Manara is a girl in one of his porn comics striking basically the same pose.
Like, people can fight all they want about it, it’s a fact he drew one of his stock porn poses and coloured it red to say it was the costume fabric.
That aside, I think it’s generally a subpar Milo Manara drawing, the head is awkwardly placed on the neck with unappealing proportions to the features, the hair isn’t draping attractively, the colour seems rushed and almost scratchy compared to his other stuff and it’s just generally below the quality bar anyone who’s familiar with his work would probably expect to see. I almost feel like it looks like it was a rush job he did as a favour or because he had to replace a water heater ASAP or something. Although in his more recent stuff he seems to be really into giving his women almost… like… ape-ish faces with extremely small,flush noses and large mouths so maybe that’s just what he’s into these days
I mean I guess he’s always been all about those little stylized dot noses, but it feels like now he’s balancing his faces in a way that makes them appear disproportionate in a way that doesn’t seem flattering, the way they used to.
Granted I’ve only got the same passing familiarity with Manara that anyone who grew up reading heavy metal and the occasional volume of Sandman does, so maybe he’s always drawn weird chimp faces and I wasn’t paying enough attention before.
