learn the history of this cover and why Dwayne McDuffie was freakin amazing as a human being.

The cover isn’t even that explicit. And it even has condoms!

I remember hearing Mr. McDuffie talking about that. People are afraid of Black folks being affectionate towards each other?
*sigh* America … am I right?

Here’s McDuffie’s quote from the linked article:

“Here’s the sad part, if I had commissioned a cover where Daisy was wearing a thong and kicking one leg high in the air so everybody could get a really good look at her crotch, or if she had her back to the camera and her spine arched at an improbable angle toaccentuate her ass, or if her enormous breasts, miraculously immune to the effects of gravity, were positioned so you couldn’t quite tell whether those shadows were her nipples, there would be no problem. Problem>? Heck, we’d probably have a “hot book” on our hands.”

It fucking kills me that he’s gone. Comics are so, so much less for it.
