In Comic Book Cover Cliches II we look right between the legs of these covers. I don’t know when this trend began but if I had to guess, I’d say it was when the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only hit theaters. Just check out the sexy movie poster
You will also see variations on this theme (i.e. half a leg showing, or maybe just the arms) but it still followed the same formula of “Just who do those legs,arms,hands, etc. belong too?” Most of he time the mysterious figure would be silhouetted for that added suspense. I guess the best point of view is from behind a pair of sexy thighs!
Well without further adieu here are the covers. Enjoy and remember
“They’ve got legs and they know how to use them!”
