This cover is truly baffling, since they managed to create an Irene Adler that frankly I am very impressed with… and yeah one of the weirdest interpretations of Dejah Thoris I have ever seen.
Now, I understand that Dejah has her own unique challenge in that her original outfit bare butt naked with jewelry… because her culture eschews clothing (and obviously has no nudity taboo). Yet pretty pretty much every design is focused on trying to push society’s nudity taboos and sexualization.
Seriously, would it kill people to consider making a design where it just looks comfy or one that looks really alien (she is a Martian) in design priorities? Just once?
