Swipe File: Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman… And Bleach

We are all very familiar I am sure, with this image by Milo Manara of Spider-Woman, a variant cover for the launch of the Marvel series… …but how close is it to the cover of Bleach Vol 17 by Tite Kubo from several years before that?  In Swipe File we present two or more images that […]

Frank Cho is most definitely doing this on purpose now. Can we start making requests for the Manara pose? If so I choose Despair from Sandman. He posts, “OMG! Frank Cho drew another comic book character for fun in a pose I don’t like. Somebody call Congress! I am OUTRAGED!!!” Got a link to an […]

G.I. Joe #6 Gets Milo Manara’d

This was the solicited “subscription variant” cover to GI Joe #6 by Dheeraj Verma, featuring the Baroness. Heavy on the butt, but nothing unusual. But on publication…. A little photoshopping on that machine gun. And IDW gets to swap buttocks for rifles.. Reminded me a little of how Marvel dealt with *that* cover…

When we first ran *that* Milo Manara cover to Spider-Woman under the headline “The Spider-Woman Cover That Will Launch A Thousand Headlines” we never thought we were being close-to-literal. We also pointed out how close it was to a previous image by Manara from his famous pornographic comic book, Click. The reason given for Manara putting his […]
