This. Well, maybe Dick Cheney has not expressed an opinion yet. Or the Dixie Chicks.
Wow. I have found that while they can cross over, the audience that loves anime and manga are not automatically the same crowd that likes American comics. Manga is often treated as a seperate creature from “comic books.” And I must say, in one fell swoop, DC manages to suggest the comic audience and the anime/manga audience are just horny teens who cannot get dates.
Seriously, out of all of those? Only one is not completely creepy. That would be the Batgirl figure, that borders on pretty cool-but the breasts kind of keep it from crossing the line into “totally cool.”
It’s already been asked as to why Powergirl has oven mits on (She’s a powerhouse in the kitchen, boys!). And this figurine actually makes Powergirl’s breasts seem reasonable in the regular comics. And yeah, all those complaints about Supergirls tiny skirt? Not made better by this model which features an even shorter skirt and top.
Thanks a lot DC.
