Why does Wonder Woman's skeleton have hair??!!

Seriously though, while I detest Frank Miller, I can't deny that those are some great covers.

Conan was by Robert E. Howard. And is it a strangled damsel in a fridge over there?

Ah, ye olde pro Frank Miller vs contra Frank Miller debate.
It's like all of his work: I like some of it, but I always have something to critique. For example: Batman Dark Knight Returns revitalized the entire Batman franchise. Undeniable.
However, there are mayor discussion to be had about Batman using guns, killing, etc.
So, while I find the Moon Knight cover pretty rad I do not like the Wolverine one. The "come-hither" gesture, combined with the grinning ..... it's just not how I perceive Wolverine. That's a pose I would expect to see on the Joker, for example, a psychopath who enjoys killing. Wolverine is more the animalistic killer, all fury and yelling, or seaking and cold blooded. Nothing about that says "grinning" to me.
