Devil's Due: Fanservice Hat Trick!  
While other Manstreamers are chillin' with Prozac and a cardboard jug of Boozy Quik, the rest are working tirelessly to beat each other to the punch.
This is Sheena, in her first appearance in her own book. We are in awe of the invisible fastenings of the knife, ankle bracelet, arm bracelet, and smart Michael Jackson single yeti-fur arm cuff. But we digress.

Behold a not-too-rare Fanservice Hat Trick: TITS, ASS, and CROTCH! Manstream wonders why there was even a effort expended making the bottoms like leopard granny panties.
 Manstream does grudingly add points back on for Sheena debuting in her own book looking like she's flying at us in an invisible Love Swing.

HowEVER, Manstream believes if you're going to go for the crucial TAC Hat Trick, to commit to crotch all the way, like so:

Or even so:

It's not accurate, but at least they tried.

C'mon, Marble Comics Devil's Due! You gave us Heroes for Hentai! Can't we also have fly-at-the-face-cameltoe? Why does DC have to lead the way on a girl-friendly book?
You're Devil's Due! No one expects much, so why not aim high?

Credit where due: SHEENA is being published by Devil's Due, and is a revival of the old Fiction House/Irish McCalla character.

Marvel publishes the not-at-all-similar-please-don't-sue-us-jungle-girl SHANNA.

I really like the way her face is obstructed, too.
After all, as every good artist knows, you want to de-emphasize the unimportant stuff in your scene so that people will focus on the mission-critical bits!

Number 2 is from the August cover of Birds of Prey...

Are you trolling your own site?

Re: Uhm...
The Manstream appreciates you signing you anon post.

Now. What do you mean, "trolling your own site?"

Actually, the single arm cuff makes sense, as your bow forearm gets chaffed to hell during archery.

But why oh why is the cuff furry?

I cannot answer that question in a PG-13 manner. Use your imagination.

I was drinking out of a bottle, thank you very much! Despite appearances, I DO have SOME dignity!

Chalk my relative Manstream silence due to the fact that I'm still shell-shocked about there being currently 70-something comments discussing the post on Storm's hair.

We bet that bottle also had a hose and funnel involved.

We, too, are shocked at the hair discussion. It has brought us a new understanding we did not have before--which is that there are others just as frustrated by the lack of a reflection in paper mirror as we are.

the only thing you can't see is her face. That bit isn't important.

Well, you can see her mouth...
