Breaking News: Superhero Statue Aimed at Horny Boys!

Last week, I posted a link to this item. Not only is it kind of funny and disturbing, but but I loved the sheer obviousness of the headline: It’s important for an expert to tell us that people who gamble so much they can’t take the time to take a bathroom break have a problem.

I’m reminded of that article by the latest furor over a rather gratuitous Mary Jane statue.

This comes from a company that hires Greg Land and Greg Horn. A company that seems to be pushing Frank Cho further towards soft-core porn with every cover. And yet it’s this statue, which is a fairly limited item aimed at an even smaller niche audience than its books, that betrays the company’s attitude towards women?

It’s an odd bit of timing, as it seems to suggest Johanna was right: This statute (along with several similar items DC recently previewed) pretty definitively shows who they’re publishing their superhero comics for.
