    Default That Amazing Spider-Man #601 Cover In Real Life



    It doesn't seem like a hundred issues ago that we had the outrage over the Amazing Spider-Man #601 cover. Still, where there's misogyny, there's brass. And cosplay model Stacey Rebecca is selling prints of her recreating that infamous pose...

    She could have photoshopped the background so it wasn't at an angle or take the pic at the same angle as the poster.

    Yeah, very pretty lady, nice picture, but the perspective fuckup gives me a headache. A somewhat more literal Escher Girl than was intended, I think

    Sigh. I accept the fact that the modern day MJ has a pierced lip.

    Issues with the original cover aside, can she legally sell this print with J. Scott Campbell's art in the print? That seems a bit illegal to me.

    That's a very cool idea. I'd like to see even more iconic covers than that one given a 'real life' treatment.

    I'm impressed that the coffee is swirled the same way.

    That's a very good question, actually...

    Putting aside the objectification issue and the double standards, this is possibly the most important question here.

    I found this link to J. Scott Campbell's site while searching Google for what the controversy over this cover involved. (I couldn't use this site's search engine b/c apparently Rich throws the word "misogyny" around more than fat kids eat candy.)

    I'm guessing it means Campbell's endorsing this image.

    Sidebar: What was the controversy behind this cover?

    I know that is how I sit when I am drinking a cup of coffee - with my arms squeezing my pecs together and with my legs in the most uncomfortable tangle imaginable.
