I just discovered the art of Mike Lunsford, who, among other things, has drawn a bunch of female superheroes that are — gasp — fully clothed. As in no cleavage, no butt cheeks hanging out, no metal bikinis or corsets. As an added bonus are in positions that can be achieved without breaking one’s spine. And guess what? They still look totally gorgeous, even by America’s really weird standards. I’m really loving this art.
The only downside I see is that the outfits still don’t really look like clothes that would be terribly practical for fighting in, with the possible exception of Wonder Woman’s much more functional-looking upper body armor.
Here’s the link, and below is my favorite, his rendering of Supergirl without her usual cheerleader skirt.
What do you think, improvement or messing with the originals? What could make these even better in terms of both being practical and empowering the girls who read these comics?
