Tess Fowler Shows Us Her Powerpuff Girls Cover Alternative

The Powerpuff Girls cover story that we seemed to break out the other day has travelled the internet like wildfire, now ending up in the Guardian (with a headline that would shame Bleeding Cool.)

But one comic book creator has her own take on the situation, rather than just railing against the image, she’s offered an alternative. Tess Fowler wrote,

Just because the erotic art in question was made by a woman, it does not invalidate the argument that one more piece of erotic comic book art might in fact be one piece too many.

“Dude. You’re so stupid. The artist is a GIRL.” is the overall commentary lighting up forum boards right now.

Really guys? Really?

We can’t even discuss the overall effect of what’s going on in comics? We can’t have a conversation that’s intelligent with multiple sides? We have to have the age old “well if a woman’s participating somehow at some level then we’ll just ignore the army of men being sexist on multiple levels” argument?

This isn’t about a single cover. This isn’t about boycotting or outrage in the streets. This is a simple discussion about what’s lacking in a medium that we love, and how to change it. “Quick 10 minute sketch. I think so much can be done with them without going *there*. Sexualization in and of itself isn’t bad in my opinion. I just think it’s terribly uncreative.”

But she’s not just railing against the system, she’s offering an alternative. As she writes,

 Quick 10 minute sketch. I think so much can be done with them without going *there*. Sexualization in and of itself isn’t bad in my opinion. I just think it’s terribly uncreative.

I’d buy this for my girls…
