DC sent out a five-page preview of Justice Society of America #1 that I found very helpful, because it confirmed for me that this is another comic that will annoy me more than entertain me.
You’ve likely already seen the cover, which as usual focuses on Power Girl’s boobs but takes it a step further by obliterating her face, completely hiding it under her hair.
And what’s going on with that picture of Wonder Woman? Is that supposed to be her shoulder? What’s with the odd strip of flesh attached to her back?
Then I saw the introduction of an old favorite, Liberty Belle.
Hourman gets to pick up a car; Belle gets to … caress his head? Why? Wouldn’t he find that distracting from his task of holding up a ton of metal directly over them?
I’m not very good with the graphics, but I do find it interesting that whatever compression I’m not doing quite right makes the artist’s highlights more obvious. The bright spots on her boobs and crotch aren’t that visible in the original… but it is interesting to see where he wanted to focus the highlights, isn’t it?
Belle was never that well-built, but it’s a new era in superhero comics. Sigh. Is the belt supposed to be around her waist? Why is it so skewed? Why have a belt on skintight spandex, anyway? I suppose no one remembers that those used to be riding jodhpurs.
