You don’t believe me when I tell you that I like the noises you make when you sleep
And I don’t believe you when you tell me that my voice is your favorite sound,
Not when you can sing like that.
One of your ex’s name tastes like stale coffee
And the other one burns as if I’ve swallowed a scalding pot.
You don’t understand why I don’t discuss my first love with you
But how am I supposed to tell the sun that I once fell for the moon?
If I could, I’d pay rent for the spaces between your fingers,
So if anyone else tried to intertwine their hand with yours,
They would be trespassing.
I’m very good at useless metaphors
And very bad at telling people how I feel
But on our worst nights, you’re snow in the month of March
and even though I’m sick of winter,
I will never stop appreciating the beauty of a blizzard.

Spider-Woman Cover Sparks Controversy
It was announced during Comic-Con last month that a new ongoing Spider-Woman series would begin in November. Helmed creatively by Dennis Hopeless & Greg Land, it immediately came under scrutiny by comic fans/Spider-Woman fans (me included) because those aren’t exactly the two best people qualified to do a straightforward Jessica Drew comic without sexuilizing her somehow. 
Now this new cover by artist Milo Manara, an artist well know for drawing women with little to no clothing in compromising positions, has been released. Causing even more controversy. It reminded me of a similar incident with DC and the Catwoman #0 cover by Guillem March. But with a couple of big differences. The main one being this Spider-Woman cover is a variant and won’t be available everywhere. The other being that Marvel must’ve known what the cover would be like based on Manara’s portfolio.
So here’s the deal. Despite the advancements women have made in comics behind and on the page. Despite that there is way more female charters heading up their own books than ever before, this seems like a “one 1/2 steps forward and two steps back” kind of deal. I understand heterosexual males are still the comic book industries’ biggest demographic, at least that’s what comic publisher’s must think. And while I do think sometimes these kinds of complaints are just people getting upset just to get upset. This one  they may be right about.
As I’ve grown out of being a horny teenager, these types of comic covers just don’t appeal to me. I would not be reading this in public for fear of embarrassment. Even the covers of Sex Criminals, a book about having sex (and stopping time) aren’t as graphic. Once again, this is not the cover being forced on us. But how can I convince my young niece to start reading comics when she sees that on the shelf with the other books? 
I don’t know, maybe I’m way off. What do you guys think?
