Welcome to Cover Girls. Each month, we gather a team of WWAC contributors to analyze a new and notable comic book cover featuring one or more women. This month, Louis, Wendy, and Kayleigh share their thoughts on the cover of Unnatural #9 by Mirka Andolfo from Image Comics.
What is your initial reaction to these covers as pieces of comics art?
Kayleigh Hearn: UHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Wendy Browne: So it was the sexy pig girl and the dangerous wolf cover that first got me into this series, and I don’t regret that choice. This cover has me both confused and intrigued by the power dynamics going on here.
Louis Skye: This is the kind of cover that I would run a mile from. I love the art style, but the content is super weird. I also don’t like animorphs in general, so this is not for me.
What do you think the artist is trying to achieve?
Wendy: Little pig, little pig let me … uh … never mind.
Louis : Actual conversation in artist’s head – I need to feature this piggy character and this wolf character. But they’re hot. And they’re connected. But they’re rivals. They’re fighting. But it looks like they’re also ****ing. Yes, this is a great idea. 10 points to Gryffindor.
The ninth issue of the 12-part series from Image Comics is available now.
