Escher Girls

Escher Girls is a blog whose mission statement is “to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.” In other words, it’s the blog you feel like creating every time you visit the local comic shop or the graphic novel section of a brick and mortar bookstore and see what passes for anatomical accuracy on the covers. It isolates in concise snippets of snark the disturbing attitude toward women that pervades the comics industry. It won't make you feel better about the state of comics, but it will make you laugh.
