Getting stuck in quicksand at the same time you're being turned 2-dimensional and folded up must suck.

cover of Avengelyne Dragon Realm #2 with Avengeline (white woman with an orange/brown long high ponytail wearing black strips across her chest and thighs and fishnet on her torso and pulled up in an atomic wedgie on her uncovered butt) riding bareback on a spiky dragon with wings, spikes behind her butt and in front and presumably sticking into her

Dragons: not to be taken internally

Given where the spikes on the back would be and her lack of any kind of pants... OUCH. x_x  I'm getting sympathy pains.

cover of "Alan Moore's Glory" #1 by Avatar Press, in the background is a white skinned (literal white) woman with green lips looking to the left with her breasts pushed up together with no support by the sides of her outfit with a diamond boob window, to her right in the foreground is Glory (white haired woman in a backless red bustier and cape with red thigh highs and no pants, holding a sword on her far left hand with her right hand reaching toward the audience and her back bent at 90 degrees

Dedicated Math Teachers

These two women are actually math teachers.  They're trying to teach us about circles and right angles.  Especially Glory, she really wants us to learn about right angles, and she's willing to rubberize herself to do it.

cover of Avengelyne & Warrior Nun Areala #1 with Avengelyne (orange haired light skinned woman) in a black crop top vest covering her breasts and black arm coverings wearing a black thong, holding a sword with her butt pointing to the right intersecting with Areala (pale skinned woman in a nun habit and boob window and cropped black top showing her torso)'s butt, it looks like Areala's butt and belts are between Avengelyne's buttcheeks

Hungry Hungry Butts

It looks almost like Avengelyne's butt is devouring Areala's belt and possibly trying to devour her whole afterwards.
