Best Abs Ever (This Week): An Appreciation Of Male Comic Book Eye Candy

In the process of writing my article about muscles vs curves, and how the big dudes of superhero comics typically fail to represent the tastes of most androphile women, I gathered a collection of images and recommended artists from my correspondents that illustrate the sort of art they’d love to see more of — but which there’s sadly very little of compared to all the T&A fan-service targeted at straight men.

I had far too many recommendations to put in the article, so I’ve compiled the collection (and a few personal favorites) into a very special one-off post. The collection includes pin-ups, fan art, sketches, and some traditional superhero art from artists who aren’t afraid to put a little male eye candy in their work!
