In short, the first cover?
1. Smaller than the average Power Girl
2. More clothing coverage than Lady Death / Red Sonja
3. From Forbes.com’s coverage of the series ” The story, while provocative and sexy, contains no nudity and is intended for a mainstream audience” – which means DC and Marvel could learn something here. Mainstream? With no nudity? Surely this can’t be a comic book.
I’m torn. Seriously, and genuinely torn. I mean, I don’t want to typecast and do the “Oh, a porn star, therefore the comic has to be about the sex and nudity and the standards”. Yet, if there was ever a comics book developer, writer and franchise holder who could make an out and out sex comic (4 colour porn on paper), Jenna Jameson would be that person. A full industry load of contacts, a production house, match experience and a Greg Land field day where porn tracing would be a feature, not a bug.
Yet, at the same time, I want to highlight the fact that Virgin comics takes pains to explain this isn’t a comic with nudity.
Sure, the odds of it being a comic that’s, well, a comic with the usual level of gratuity that’s been pushed in the four colour book market are pretty good. But what interests me is the prospect of a comic produced by Virgin Comics, written by Jenna Jameson, and produced with less gratuitous female flesh per page than mainstream DC / Marvel.
That would be most interesting indeed.
