What I Learned From My Comics This Week...

So, I got a bit of a late start on my new comics buying experience. But, I've finally gotten around to reading this crop. And, well I've made a startling discovery. It came after reading this weeks entry into the Messiah CompleX story arc, New X-Men #45

What is this startling revelation you ask? Well, brace yourself for this one, because it is a bit of a shocker.

New X-Men artist Humberto Ramos has never seen an actual woman ever before in his entire life. EVER!

The man is at a complete and total loss for how the anatomy of a female face is actually supposed to look. Let's take a peek at a few examples.

Here we see X-23. Looks pretty normal. 2 eyes, a mouth, even an arm. But, what the fuck is that thing on her face? Is she a snowman? Is X-23 some kind of pretty birdie? I guess it's supposed to be a nose. I dunno, I like the bird idea better.

I just... I just don't know what to say about this one. So much is wrong about this picture, I have to assume that Ramos is either:

A) Blind
B) A shut-in, who has never had a face-to-face interaction with another human being who looks something like this
Last but not least, we step away from X-23 to look at the other half of that big fight scene, Lady DeathstrikeApparently, her mutant power not only gave her claw fingers, but also altered the composition of her mouth so that she only has one gigantic tooth in the front. Guess what guys? Mouths don't actually look like that.

Humberto, if you want, send me your address and I'll mail you some pictures of ladies to, erm, 'study'.
