Recently, the Comics Alliance and other blogs have been having some great discussions about how the over-the-top sexism in comics art can kill stories for female readers.

If you didn't get it already, check out these awesome sketches of superhero costumes where artist Fernacular drew male superheroes in the same kind of outfits their female counterparts are usually shoved into. The point of the outfits is to:

1) Make it so the first thing you think of when you look at them is sex, whether you want to or not. 2) Make it so that any male human who looks at this feels really uncomfortable. 3) Make it funny, because, well, it’s kinda hilarious really.
