panel from Witchblade #2 showing a blonde woman in a green top with boobsocks and a blue short skirt holding onto a pole with her back arched over 90 degrees and rubbery but the rest of her not leaning in any way

Taffy woman gets another job

cover of Spiderman vol. 4 #1 comic book showing Spider-Gwen with big puffy red lips with boobsocks and a tiny waist the size of her neck

promotional art for Dolphin Wave showing 4 anime style girls in black wetsuits, on the left side is a purple haired girl with tan skin jumping in the air in a centaur boobs and butt pose, next to her is a blonde girl bending her back in a 90 degree angle

Maybe their poses represent the waves

cover of X-Treme X-Men vol. 3 #2 showing a pale woman with short orange hair and flaming wings in a red and black leather jacket with spikes wearing a black bikini top and black leather pants, next to her is a green haired pale woman in a green bikini top and green leggings with laces down the side, the green woman is in a wormy organless centaurish pose

X-Treme Torso Rubberization
