According to wikipedia "good girl art" is:
"...found in drawings or paintings which feature a strong emphasis on attractive women no matter what the subject or situation."Whereas Young X-Men was a secondary storyline to the X-Men "Divided We Stand" story.
However, my interest really lies with Terry and Rachel Dodson's artwork!
And right there is the truth to why the Dodson's artwork is so appealing. The women the Dodson's draw are not weak, docile characters whose only strength is their exterior. The women they draw are fully realized both internally and externally and in essence are not just attractive women, but attractive characters.
Mantra. Judging from the cover art I knew why I purchased these comics as a 13 year old boy and looking at them now as an adult I appreciate them for much more than a prepubescent thrill they were then, but now a realization that even at 13 I had great taste in good girl art.
