This gem comes from Titan Comics, the publisher behind a couple of disappointments we commented on before (special shout-out to adding boobplate to Dark Souls, of all things). 

Probably saddest part is that Monster Massacre are comic anthologies, and while adult-oriented, most of the stories included do not have the erotic monster girl artwork the covers suggest they would:


There’s a Jack Kirby horror comic in the first issue! Imagine seeing this as you open a book with cover like that.


But why though? 


So, apparently they decided to make a Dark Souls comic – which is awesome. However the company they chose to adapt it to comic format is Titan, the people who brought us:

Now, presumably they received a lot of information such as source materials, concept art, etc but still took it upon themselves to give their heroine a ridiculous boobplate.

It’s impossible to even look into this matter without finding imagery that is both amazingly preposterous, and yet also perfect “reaction” images to the situation.


So what should have been a great positive example is now a cautionary tale about how even great properties can slide into ridiculous female armor territory as they expand markets.
