    “He raped me. …With sexual assault.”? Is that different than being sexually assaulted …with rape? At least the art is good. I’ve seen mainstream superhero books that don’t look so good.

    I think the defining moment came when Diane, fleeing her inner demons by running out of the classroom, almost runs straight into Mike’s shiny crotch. Hooray awareness!

    Art is great, indeed…

    OK, just checking, the line “He raped me. …With sexual assault” wasn’t actually on the original cover right? And the shiny crotch on p. 2 wasn’t there, because it’s just a closeup of p. 17 which doesn’t have the photoshop flare effect. I figure everything after p. 3 is the real deal though.

    You’re right. The “Your Letters” page shows the real cover. Pages 1 & 2 were photoshoped. Well done though.

    “He raped me. …With sexual assault”

    Is that like being killed with murder?

    Reminds me of an old sexual health campaign. I remember seeing the posters at the Aboriginal Medical Service, as a child.
    I found a couple of links. Check it out, it’s ‘Condoman’!

    Alexandre Rizos, if you don’t stop posting superficial comments that feature a link to your own weblog, I’m going to ban you for a week. As it is, I’ve removed the links.
