After showcasing the official cover art for Avengers vs. X-Men #0, Bleeding Cool says they received this comment from a “prominent comic book writer:”

Has anyone pointed out that Frank Cho drew the Scarlet Witch and Jean Grey (or whoever that is) flying out of a vagina on this cover?

(It’s actually Hope.)

Anyway, Cho had pretty much the best response.

It never occurred to me that I was drawing a giant vagina when I drew this cover. I could kind of see it now in its final colored form. It’s funny how people project their fears, concerns and fantasies into other people’s art.


He continued:

Okay. Rebuttal.

Like Georgia O’Keefe, I love vaginas. What’s wrong with vaginas? ;-)

Nothing at all, Mr. Cho. Nothing at all. Voluminous swirling red capes? Also fine. Also Georgia O’Keefe.
