for the record, i think the heroes for hire #13 cover is sexist and disgusting. bravo to divalea for the remix of it. it improves it 100%, but IMHO marvel would be better off with a totally different cover altogether. not to say that cover artist, sana takeda, isn't a good artist. it's just this cover concept that i don't like. i don't look at that cover and see strong, female characters. i see fanboys drooling and, and...ewwww. >.<
there are tons of better and far more eloquent posts against this cover out there on the web than i could ever write. go check out When Fangirls Attack and scoll for links about H4H.
so, upon hearing tentacle pron being discussed in lots of places due to this cover, a visual pun entered my head. truly, i have a twisted mind when it comes to bad puns. 9,9 true tentacle pron is squids and octipi ogling magazines featuring other cephalopods in suggestive poses. this is as close as i will ever get to tentacle pron manga or anime. i will go no closer.
i'm thinking of inking and coloring this sketch. i love bad puns.
