One of my favorite things is comics. However, I've noticed that for some reason, artists put women not only in some of the dumbest, looking outfits but they also get placed in some really odd and awkward positions.

It honestly bothers me because sometimes, it can so jarring that I can't focus. I mean I understand wanting your character to be sexually appealing but there is a time and place for sexy. If she's battling, shouldn't she be wearing armor and trying to stay alive?

Lucky for me, I found http://eschergirls.tumblr.com... and there are people who agree with me. However, I wanted to know what people here thought.

And if you're trolling, you'll be ignored.

Women are more agile than men (especially in comics), and thus it would be harder for them to fight if they were wearing heavy suits.

Yeah but that doesn't mean they should be wearing high heels and tight fitting spandex

The primary audience/demographic for comics is male.

How do you get nerdy males to buy your product? Inundate them with scantily clad women.

How else would they be able to do all the flipping and fighting that they do?

Thats not completely true take one of the heroins from the anime fairly tail she has full armor and she cand still flip and stuff
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

That's anime. There is no such thing as logic in anime.

I beg to differ

I deny, because I don't want to get in another useless argument with you.
