Spider-Woman's Big Ass is a Big Deal!

Maddox who you might remember from the early years of the web and the website The Best Page in the Universe Posted a pretty epic response to the critics of Milo Manara's Spider-Woman #1 variant cover. I don't 100% buy into what he's saying here, comics are a commodity, a business. If your customer says something is offensive, guess what? It just became offensive. They might be totes wrong but if you're marvel would you rather be right or would you rather sell comic books.

However I LOVE the rant he goes on about sexuality and sexism. The knee jerk reaction to "OMG this cover is to sexy women won't like it" is TOTALLY sexist. I'm not saying that doesn't mean there's some merit to it, I'm just saying that assuming all women are asexual flowers who only like playing with My Little Pony and Easy Bake Ovens is total horseshit. Also horseshit is Elle complaining about ANYTHING. What a giant bunch of hypocrites.

And with all that being said, I still don't like the cover.
