Many times, the artist who designs the cover for a comic is different from the artist who illustrates the book itself. Cover artists are supposed to make eye-catching and dynamic covers in order to grab potential customers’ attention. Usually, they draw the women in provocative poses with enormous chests. The men are often shown with rippling muscles and punching things. Cover artists take liberties with the characters they draw and don’t have to make them match what the characters look like in the books.
Cover artists don’t even have to draw characters that are in the issue. For example, in issue 3 of Blackest Night Tales of the Corps, the cover artist showed two scantily clad and busty women fighting a muscle-bound red monster. I couldn’t locate any of those characters in the book at all. I actually didn’t see any females in the book until the second story, and they looked like teenagers.
My question is how soon before comic book cover artists only start drawing pairs of boobs in order sell the books?
