I didn't think it was possible for this book to get anymore problematic, but I stand corrected.

WARNING: for graphic eroticised violence.

4 pages speak for themselves

And then the inevitable confrontation with the Dark Knight himself.

Dear Winick,

Helena Wayne called. And right now she's feeling like unleashing her own personal brand of justice after the way you've shat on both her mum and dad by writing rubbish such as this. And "rubbish" is being *very* polite. This. THIS is just not "sexy" at all.

I don' see the eroticism either. But then I find neither blood nor breakdowns even slightly sexy so I guess it's possible their presence just prevents me from making any other judgemen

Well, I think these pages *are* eroticised, but that it's due to the art and probably not anything specific in the script.

But I actually do find blood and breakdowns erotic in some circumstances (not here, ick), so maybe that's colouring my judgement in the opposite direction.

To clarify, it's mostly the way Selina is drawn lying down with her boobs and ass twisted up on that first panel that strikes me as sexified.
