Contorting a dead, sexy horse

Okay, I know, the whole "women's poses for comic books are completely unrealistic and over-sexed and so contorted as to defy belief" thing is so last month. But I ended up on a chain of articles, all of which were funny, outrageous, sad, and funny (again) in their own way that I had to share. Some of them come complete with Real People trying to strike those poses to show off how silly, stupid, and/or anatomically incorrect they are.

These articles mostly talk about fantasy book covers, but it's almost entirely the same conversation.

So skip it if you're tired of the subject, but if not, some good stuff here.
