But I know that it's not. Sad, really.
That's the ad what showed up when I visited the Planetary #18 preview at PopCultureShock, pointed out in a Bad Signal mailing from Warren Ellis. Lots of interesting posts at that last link recently, with a variety of writers and artists taking a whack at the theme of what Zero Four will bring, artistically.
And visiting the Toys link at PCS. . . I'm still not sure if that was deliberate. But I am very, very grossed out.
I suggest starting with The Bizarre Breasts Tutorial: How to Draw Breasts:
Bizarre proportions are nothing new to comics; be it the desire to cater to the cheesecake crowd or simply the preference of the artist, distorted anatomy has become commonplace. The fact that "professional" artists may utilize distortions in published works is a bit disappointing, but frankly, if they've gotten the job the odds are they aren't going to feel the need to change their style. That's fine, the world needs laughter. However, what does bother me is the possibility — hell, the reality — that amateur artists are copying this exaggerated anatomy and making these mistakes their own. So, in hopes of reaching those for whom this advice may actually have some impact, I have utilized my meager knowledge of anatomy and admittedly unpolished art skills to bring the world a brief tutorial on one of the comic artists' greatest challenges: the breast.
But that's just me.
Update: On the other hand. . .

See our breasts!
See our breasts!
Jutting pertly from our chests!
Let us focus on the mammary,
And disregard the rest!
See them swing!
Watch them bounce!
More fan service to the ounce!
We think tits are a lip-smacker,
Nothin's better on a cracker!
Like balloons they float on high!
Topped with nipples taller than Mt. Everest!
