In discussions about the great living cartoonists, the name Milo Manara is rarely bandied about, a state of affairs that is both impossible to believe and very easy to explain. Manara is a comics artist of uncommon ability, a master of linework and layout, whose storytelling chops deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those of Kirby, Crumb, Toth, Moebius, or anyone else you'd put in that same grouping. He also happens to specialize in pornography in which women are sexually dominated and abused for the titillation of the reader. Our erotic comics fortnight rolls on, gentle Comics Alliance readers, so let's get sexy. Let's get problematically sexy. First, let me show you what I mean when I say Manara is a great comics artist.

I am a huge fan of Milo Manara and his erotic works. But not only this, it also brought a much bigger and relevant issue back to my attention: sexism within superhero comics. However, with Manara admitting he drew his inspiration from the pre-existing images of the character, I highly doubt the later to be true. With Manara taking an image from an already sexist franchise, it was inevitable he would portray a problem present in all superhero comics: depictions of over-sexualised female characters. I would argue that not only are many of her attributes similar to those of fashion magazine and adverts, but also of mainstream female porn performers: big red lips, perfect caboose, long flowing hair and tiny waist.
