'Power Girl' #27 Cover - August Solicit

Written by Matthew Sturges • Art by HENDRY PRASETYA
Power Girl has 20 seconds to save the day – three times over! But who set up this dangerous game? Can Power Girl find a way to overcome not one but three disasters and track down the statistically-minded villain behind it all?
On sale AUGUST 17 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T 

[From ComicBookResources]

Here's the cover for that issue:
Cover by Warren Louw

Cover by Sami Basri

Comparing it with these two sample covers from Amanda Conner and Sami Basri who have both done a great job on their own runs with PeeGee. Conner's PG was a little bit cartoony but complete showed the feistyness and often times, cockiness of the heroine; while Basri's art was more anime/manga influenced, showing a more determined and "realistic" version of Power Girl. Both versions are still sexy, but they put more emphasis to the character and her unique traits, rather than depicting her as a mere sex symbol with the curvylicious body and big breasts. 

Cover by Amanda Conner

So based on that, I have to agree with dcwomenkickingass' statement that the cover by Louw is gotta be the "porniest" PG rendition ever. I'm a big fan of porn, and I kind of like the #27 cover to be honest. I'm a guy so its kind of automatic (I know a lot of women will hate me on this).

Yeah its all cheesecake art, with the tits and the private part almost showing with that thin covering, punctuated by the black maskara over the eyes that completes the begging "fuckface"/"sexface" tone all over PeeGee. It actually qualifies for Penthouse Comix.. I like it. Its not that bad to have a little bit of the erotic in mainstream comics, you know.
