Oh, yeah, I get all that, and I'm not saying that there isn't a huge amount of such stuff in comics today, or that it's not something that should be addressed - I'm just saying that one should keep a sense of proportion. If something is almost omnipresent, then getting outraged at every example of it does no good - one should save one's ire for the really bad stuff (and yes, the MJ statue definitely qualifies, although I confess that my reaction was largely 'good grief - who would WANT a thing like that?' Then again, I'm not female). If a comic looks to be otherwise well-written and well-drawn, as this looks to be, then the occasional ass-shot can be forgiven - if a comic is a badly-written, badly drawn piece of dreck whose only PURPOSE is to deliver such titillating details, then outrage should by all means be rained down upon it. (And then there are ones that are neither one nor the other - such as 'Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose', which is arguably the latter, but is so BLATANT about it that it's actually quite a lot of fun to read.) It's the same general reaction I have to racism in Golden Age comics - it's pretty much everywhere, so you have to either develop a sense of proportion in regards to it or not read Golden Age stuff at all.
