DeviantArt update

Here we have one I posted a few days back and forgot to put up here...

Page 3 from issue 3

Uh, lotsa boobs on this page hunh?
...but it's all for the story folks, enjoy it while you can.
Actually this issue will have the cast sportin their nano-skin suits for the first time, so you can expect all of them to be decked out in their rubber nano jumpsuits from here out.

Yeah, this is actually the most graphic the book has been, nudity wise - with the half exposed breasts in the second "flashback" panel. They were going to be fully exposed originally, as it didn't seem they'd have a gown on the enhancees during the procedures (logically), but I just didn't want to take the book there, at this point necessarily. This issue has enough exploitive elements...

I dunno, I hate the whole dilemma of violence vs nudity, with violence being pc and accepted, with nudity not, so I don't want to censor that, but the book isn't about cheesecake, and it's got enough of that in it already, so I try to curb it where I can.

Thoughts?

More BOOBS!!! That's my take for what it is worth. I am actually loving this book for the story, but there is something about Holly ...

So you don't think there's too much cheesecake in the book as is, or is it that there's so much already, why hold back?

I really don't see the book as a cheesecake, t & a, exploitation thing, but more that it plays with those aspects of comic books (among many things), in the context of the story. Of course, my worry is, that by doing that, that's all it's perceived as anyways. That is to say, those that actually read it, might know otherwise, but those who just see it, jump to the wrong conclusion, and consequently it costs me sales...

I dunno

You don't ever have to worry about a lack of boobs though, that is for sure!
