Kyle Baker posts a couple of pages from his wonderfully funny Plastic Man comic.
Like Baker says on his blog:
"Here's some classic material I found online. From PLASTIC MAN #20. The series was cancelled after this issue because DC felt I was taking their properties in too dark and depressing a direction. "Where's the fun?" sobbed Dan Didio."
You know he's deliberately juxtaposing the cheesecake with the narrative of being a positive role model for children is deliberate and a sarcastic attack on DC & other publishers for increasingly dark, sexualised children's books.
I know he's deliberately juxtaposing the cheesecake and the message.
Which makes this guy's Blog at Newsarama comments on this post all the more funny:
"She’s talking about being a role model, but she’s drawn in a classic cheesecake pose. Sometimes I think the writers have a different vision of the characters than the artists."
"If it’s a deliberate juxtaposition, than it’s not a smart one. Mary’s talking about being a role model, but she’s standing like she’s posing for a model shoot."
Yet again, it's almost impossible to measure just how dumb some people are capable of being.
