Super-rad redhead Lorraine Cink, host of Marvel's "The Watcher," took this week's episode to tell us all why the new female incarnation of Thor is important, both to women and to comics.

    After seeing Milo Manara’s recent, erm, anatomically improbable Spider-Woman variant cover, plus the regular cover by Greg Land, artist Karine Charlebois was compelled to take her to blog Less Tits N’ Ass, More Kickin’ Ass to do a little corrective work.
