Those are some mighty big boobs for kindergarteners.

I'd think the cover was a less extreme version of this

Meaning, the artist was probably going for Powerpuff teenagers than kindergarteners.

Though I do wonder WTF Cartoon Network was thinking by approving the cover.

See but that has both grown bodies and faces, a sort of "all-grow'd-up" vibe. The other one sort of looked like kindergarteners with boobs.

That's kind of how they'd look if you drew this:

To human proportions.
Personally, I'm not seeing a suggestive element being offensive so much as their supposed to be drawn as inhuman puffballs. That's why they're "The Powerpuff Girls" That's what really blows my mind. The joke is it's all cute and 2-D

The girls with the boobs must be removed because the boobs belong to girls that I do not like and because I do not like them, I , mojo Jojo, do not want to see their boobs.

Well...

They're not even human born. They're a lab creation. Regular age doesn't apply to them, although they are 5 years old. The Z version states they are 13 years old girls (but those were human born).

Ya, I'm fine with the girls growing up, I wasn't ever a fan of the show myself.

But that's overtly sexual. The costumes should probably be redesigned; they made perfect sense for super deformed kindergartners, but on a teen or older it's far too racy.

So what about kibsergardners does that complainer find sexual?
 
2014-01-25 10:50:28 AM
I think if the artist had drawn white tights instead of stockings and decreased the bust size ever so slightly, we'd be looking at a non-issue. Why are we letting a Comic Book Guy set the standard for overt sexualization anyhow?

Seriously -- this is the most benign cheesecake artwork you'll find in a comic book store. (And we have to remember that in comic book stores, even the action figures are often more sexualized than this.) I have a young daughter in the target demo and I wouldn't have any problem with this. I'd be more worried about a realistic Mojo Jojo because that might actually frighten her.

I'm just glad that, by complaining, the chucklehead in question just bumped the value of this particular collectible (it was, after all, meant as a collectible) well above the others.

Nah, he complained about the cover in the solicitation, so the art was pulled before the book was even released.

Sorry, but I can't fap to this.

1) they look like Bratz dolls.

2) Now this thread will devolve into rule #34.

4) Fano is it bad that I read that entirely in Mojo Jojo's voice?

Yes, girls with giant heads and eyes make me want to fark them, therefore, they should be suppressed.

This one is fine. The problem with the others is THEY HAVE FINGERS.

Fingers are for perverts.

Scary part was, as bad as the characters looked, the plot of the special was worse.

Weren't they originally known as the 'Whoop Ass Girls?'

Anyone else catch that episode where Bubbles sticks a condom in the Professor's pocket before he goes off on a date?

the cover from the TFA is not terribly different from some of the fanart posted in this thread...which is why it's probably not suitable for a licensed comic ;-)

WUT?  They have hands and fingers now?  No way!!  Stick with the original, it was much more interesting and less sexualized.

Not like it hasn't happened before!

Seriously, one guy got his panties in a wad over Derpy and Hasbro and the Hub had to go as far as redubbing the character's voice AND cut out her name being mentioned as well as making sure that all future merchandise didn't mention her name either. Not to mention that they had to re-do the DVDs and Blurays as well that mention Derpy by name or feature her talking.

Well, most of them have very low art skill, and terrible taste.

Assuming you were more angling for the sex aspect...meh? The drawings depict hilariously over-developed women in various fetish outfits like 'school girl uniform' (seriously, why is that like the default for the blonde one?). If it were a depiction of overt sexualization of the ORIGINAL characters (you know, 5 year olds) then yes, it would be creepy.  As is? Not so much. It's clear the drawers were picturing much more mature/older characters.
