I've been debating with myself for a couple of months now about publishing a posting like this. That lovely illustration to the left actually came to me by way of a follower of this blog who happens to be of the fairer sex believe it or not. This now is the second sexually explicit illustration of Nightshade I've come across and I couldn't find out who the artist was on this one either. This is kinda weird to me because she's never really been that kind of sensual heroine. I mean I would expect to find this sort of stuff for Powergirl, Poison Ivy or even Starfire but Nightshade? By the way I hope the bare chest isn't bothering anybody out there cause I'm kinda partial to it. So I did a little research on the Squad's mistress of the night and found some comic book appearances in which artists had her showing off assets other then her shadow realm powers.
What your looking at below is some clip art from Justice League International #13 in which were seeing the Squad prep for a mission to Russia in order to bust Nemesis out of jail. Well actually we're seeing a little more then that here but you know what I mean.
And to the right here we have a scene from Checkmate #20 (Fall of the "Wall") featuring a non mini-skirt costume that is showing less skin but is more form fitting. Going back to the mini-skirt version of the costume I have to say it's pretty silly to think of a super heroine running around on dangerous missions and fighting crime in that thing. Not that I'm complaining however. And speaking of skirt lines, that black box was something I indeed did add to the original illustration before publishing it. The original doesn't leave ANYTHING to the imagination and even I have some standards of modesty for this blog. But they mostly apply below the waist, not above.
