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

Eden Fesi-Stefano Caselli-hed

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!

Why Big Superhero Muscles Aren’t ‘The Same Thing’ As Sexy Curves

superchest

As a man who reads superhero comics, I confess that I share a commonly-held prurient interest in big-chested, long-legged heroes in skin-baring costumes that barely cover their naughty bits -- or as I like to call him, Namor.

Sadly, Namor is pretty much alone in his category. Contrary to the perception that male heroes in comics are frequently sexually objectified, it's my experience that even Namor is only rarely presented as someone to lust over. Yet I'm fortunate that my tastes run towards the Hemsworth end of the scale. Like many straight men, I admire the kind of buff dudes that are the staple of superhero comics, even though they are rarely sexualized. If I shared the tastes of most of the women I know, I think I'd find superhero comics an even more frustratingly sexless wasteland.

‘Inhumanity’ #1: Previously, In Comics [Review]

Inhumanity #1

Another week, another Marvel crossover. No sooner has Infinity packed its bags and left the planet than the universe is propelled into Inhumanity, a more nebulously constructed event that weaves between a dozen or so books this winter, all marked by the sound of a disaffected teenager who doesn't want to take out the trash, "inh."

The event will lead up to a new ongoing series, Inhuman, by writer Matt Fraction, artist Joe Madureira, and whoever takes over art from Joe Madureira halfway through issue #1. (The book has already been bumped from January to April.) But it all begins with this week's Inhumanity one-shot, by Fraction, Olivier Coipel and others.
