Rhetorical Question: Do Turner's Women Have Intrernal Organs?

Of course not. We all know that. Its just been proven once again by the sneak peak cover of JLA #10 the Meltzer has posted on his My Space page, that I've stolen and posted here.

OK, I'll be up front about this: I like breasts as much as the next heterosexual man, probably even more so. But this Power Girl is just out of bounds. Really. If they are going to be that big, than I want a body behind them that can at least look like it might hold them up and instead we literally have a chest cavity smaller that the mammary gland on top of it.

Obviously I'm wrong and the market place is correct because Turner keeps getting work, and I've never met Michael so I'm not picking on him personally, but this just doesn't work for me.

I'm clearly not a true fan boy anymore. I've lost my credentials.

Agreed. Not only is it poor artwork. it's unattractive.

Maybe someone should just tell Turner to use other sources for female body types, besides the Russ Myers films he obviously is used to using. ;)

This cover lacks the class that a book featuring DC's premier super-team should have. It's better suited for something like TAROT:WITCH OF THE BLACK ROSE than JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Get J.G. Jones on JLA's covers - STAT!

I agree that it looks offputtingly unnatural.

I also feel the need to point out that if there's one woman who should have zero problems supporting gigantic breasts, it's Power Girl - she can lift battleships! I'm guessing a large pair of breasts are pretty effortless...
