I am no fan of platinum blondes, natural or peroxide. I am a sucker for long necks, though, and I have waxed poetic before about the difficulties of representing draped cloth, which Mr. Charles depicts with great effect here. Additionally, that must be the finest drawn ball of a foot I have ever seen, although uncharacteristic honesty forces me to admit that I cannot point to any other foot ball (foot ball, get it?) for comparison. And finally, low cut strapless tops with tired elastic have been known to draw my attention at times.

Can you tell that I like this cover?

Update (09/25/2013): Corrected the printing date.
