Guillem March Parodies His Own ‘Catwoman’ Cover in the Style of R. Crumb
A ComicsAlliance favorite for his typically excellent pin-up artwork, Guillem March alarmed readers recently with an uncharacteristically strange cover illustration for September’s Catwoman #0 for DC Comics. The cover depicted Batman’s classic love(-hate) interest in such a way that caused some of his fellow artists to comment upon the anatomical realities of the drawing — Catwoman’s face, chest and rear-end are all visible from the same angle — in the form of parody artworks. Plainly aware of the humorous nature of the Catwoman cover, March has parodied his own work with a new drawing in the style of cartoonist R. Crumb, who is of course well known for his work with sexual themes.
In a later blog post, March agreed that readers have the right to criticize the Catwoman drawing, but he had some words for fellow professionals who joined in on the fun.
