The Magical Cleavage Window – It’s All Done With Mirrors

Over at Journalista!, Dirk Deppey has posted Darwyn Cooke’s cover for the next issue of The Comics Journal. “What do you see?” he asks.

Well, I see someone who can’t hold a mirror properly. It’s got a handle, young lady. I hope those gauntlets are clean, otherwise you’ll be leaving smeary marks all over the surface.

And, anyway, I thought it was the eyes that were the mirror of the soul?

(Technical note: the specialist vestmental-panelological term “Magical Cleavage Window” was coined and defined by Mr Dave Campbell. All serious scholars of sequential art are in his debt.)
