As a grown up kid who got to be a grown up kid on a diet of Marvel comics, drawing Spidey, Hulk, et al, I've always been fascinated with the process. As a grown up kid with male genetic make-up, I've come to appreciate the way the female form is represented in these comics. Um. In a purely arty way, of course.
This book turned up and I flicked through it faster than the latest edition of Wild Waterfowl of Norfolk. Which is pretty damn quick, I can tell you. Some of the Babes looked as if they'd been drawn before Mickey Mouse was invented, and seaside postcards were still considered risque.
Still, if you're an absolute beginner and you're not expecting too much, it's a good start, which is the only reason I gave it any stars at all. Just goes to show...never judge a book by its cover...or its title, in this case.
Seriously not frothy. No. Not a bit.
