|This is actually the most mild of 3 different styles for one variant.|
Also, it helps that sometimes the stories in the comics are quite clever, and because readers probably go into these books expecting little, when something really smart or deep occurs it is all the more impressive. For example, the #0 issue of a series (with future issues coming, I assume), "Lookers," discusses the concept of the male gaze on its first page, and how the male gaze in 2016, "Is a webcam." I don't know about you but I didn't actually learn about the male gaze until during college when I was taking courses in the Communications Department, so this comic about a web-show girl who has a sister that beats-up internet trolls is actually coming from a intriguingly intelligent place. Plus there's boobs, so that's fun.

The comics that Boundless is putting out don't try to market themselves as high-brow literature--they know the audience they want to appeal to and do so with gusto--that said, these, "Cheesecake," comics often have been quite solid in their own right and during 2016 a lot of good stuff was put out. I guess sometimes you can judge a book by its (many) covers, but despite that cover the book can also be a pretty smashing read.
