Here’s a closer look at the Special Forces cover that was in the previous post.

(Cover of Special Forces #4, Image Comics)

According to some notes, this is supposed to be a satire comic.

How about then we compare it to an eerily similar NON-SATIRE comic cover by J. Scott Campbell?



Hint: a responsible satire doesn’t straight-up reproduce the satirized thing, but puts some sort of twist on it. And I don’t mean a torso twist.
Also no, using the Disney font for the author’s credit doesn’t yet make the whole artwork “ironic”.

We truly live in an era when deliberate sexualization can’t be told apart from gratuitous sexualization.
