The 13 Most Improbable ‘Sexy’ Comic Book Costumes [Original Art]
Last week, we here at ComicsAlliance brought you a look at the weirdest “sexy” Halloween costumes on the market, and as much as we poke fun, the fact is that they wouldn’t be making ‘em if people didn’t buy ‘em. The fact is, the Sexy Costume Market is booming, and we want a piece of that action. The problem is figuring out where to go that the existing costumes already haven’t, because really, once you hit “Sexy Elmo,” there’s just not a whole lot left. That’s why today, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims, webcomic artist Max Huffman and ComicsAlliance’s own Caleb Goellner have scraped the bottom of the help illustrate the 13 Most Unlikely Sexy Costumes From Comics!
