The battle can only end one way:

If Michael Turner, Greg Land, and Frank Cho all leave comics, Manstream will lose eighty percent of its material. Thank you, Turner, Land and Cho, for providing us with a steady stream of painfully amusing pictures. We love you guys. No, really! After all, you only hurt the ones you love.

As a sword fighter, all I could think was, "Hmm, she left herself way exposed. I don't even have to use a blade - a solid kidney punch will have her out."

There's no sense even getting started on her technique. Once started on that long and dreadful road, you'll only give yourself a migraine, and no one will draw her sword work any better. Trust me. It's been this way for thirty years.

It looks like Spider man is about to grab himself a hand full of lady parts there. NICE.

How much do they pay Turner to draw covers? Could we match it? Cause I would totally pay Turner not to draw. We could all pitch in, have a "Pay Michael Turner Not to Draw" fund.

...Failing that, we could get a bunch of us to chip in a few bucks to buy Turner a copy of Dynamic Anatomy for the Artist, and maybe hire a goon or two to beat him over the head with it.

Yeah, what's with the long stretch of pipe-cleaner abdomen Michael Turner draws? It's weird. It looks like a giant hand grabbed her around the middle and squeezed.

Saddest of all: this is one of the best Turner covers I've seen! Most of them are much more hideous! At least Spider-Man looks good, and Red Sonja has thighs thicker than her knees.

greg land + pornface
Please see Land's cover of Ultimate Power #8 - Captain America is clearly enjoying having reached orgasm there. It's made a bit more freaky than usual by his chinstrap.

Yeah, but calves much narrower than her knees.

And Spidey, IMO, looks A) too thin and B) his head's too enlongated. This isn't a superhero fight, it's how they settle arguments at Anorexics Anonymous.

I'll pay him to make covers for Yaoi Press.

This works only if you pay him so much and give him so much work that he never does regular comics again.

Both of those characters look like they have birth defects.

Although in defense of Frank Cho, at least his cheescake makes an effort to be well-drawn.
