        I don't think it was the nudity so much as it was the feeling that these characters could get hurt or die whereas mainstream heroes almost never die, unless its an imaginary story.

      I'll admit that I'm not a fan of the artwork. It did transfer well to
      the film though.

      I suspect it was the nudity that was so unusual at the time that made it
      "cutting edge"
