BOOB WAR WEEK CONTINUES! The Four Points of Contact Principle
Aaand we're back.
One of the things I've noticed as a collector and connoisseur of Boob War comics is what I call The Four Points of Contact Principle. In essence, the principle states that if a hot Boob War chick standing is sexy, a hot Boob War chick who is on her hands and knees is even sexier. The more points of contact with the ground, the sexier.
Nothing says, "Hey kids! Boob War!" like a half-naked woman crouching down on your cover. The Four Points of Contact Principle is versatile enough that it can cover many different scenarios. For instance, the heroine and her breasts can be getting zapped by mystic power like Mantra (below), or she can be swooning at the feet of her butch opponent like Wonder Woman (below), or just striking a vixeny pose under a gauzy Star Trek filter like Shanna the She-Devil (also below.)
Okay, okay, Shanna really only has three points of contact, but she has a knife, which boost her right back up there on the Boob War Meter.
There are many variations on the Four Points of Contact Principle, which usually involve lounging seductively like the woman from Codename: Knockout whose name escapes me, or by crawling on one's belly like a reptile like Vampirella in chains (below).
Regardless of the form, the principle remains the same: Four Points of Contact makes for some quality Boob War.
