Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #2
What is this cover
Why is Laurie’s head shattering
Why are angry hippies bursting out of her boobs
That’s a weird face.
Are those… psychedelic-themed villains? I’m having The Courtyard and Century: 1969 flashbacks. Maybe exploring themes Moore has used isn’t as good an idea as it used to be.
I feel a bit uncomfortable singling out Amanda Conner’s art, since she’s the only female artist on Before Watchmen afaik, but where’s the rest of Laurie’s abdomen that her fist is coming out of? And her other boob?
I’ll be even more weirded out, though, if all the Silk Spectre covers follow this route with… symbols, plot elements, like those figures, on her boobs. Is this supposed to make readers uncomfortable with how she was raised to be a sex symbol, or is it more about a hot young Strong Female Character(TM) kicking ass?
