Reviews - What do customers think about Good Girl Art?
Nice overview of a much covered subject Mar 23, 2008
Good Girl Art is a very nice book thats main problem is it doesn't cover enough. Odd to say as its primary objective is an overview of cheesecake art in the comics. It could have had more pictures and a little more in-depth text. Although it is a very good overview, sadly it needs a deeper look to appreciate the subject. Some area's are done in a fine manner while others are skipped over as if an after thought :( For the price of the book it could have been much thicker and it's not as there isn't enough examples out there to cover. I must give the author kudo's as he did use many examples which aren't widely seen. But for a novice looking into the subject or even a seasoned vet, I'm sure a thicker picture count would say more about the subject than a paragraph of text would.
