Anatomy Lessons


Reading comics in my formative years, two issues of the Defenders particularly drew my attention to the body types of the characters.

This image of Valkyrie, Hellcat, and Red Guardian from the closing page of Defenders #44 was the first time I noticed different breast sizes among super-heroines.

It goes without saying that Hulk is more muscular than the average hero. But I remember thinking how his super-developed torso on the cover of Defenders #87 looked like a face.

Both of these examples invariably say more about my age at the time I first read these issues than the artwork itself.
