Controversial Spider-Woman Cover Gets Nicki Minaj “Anaconda” Parody (PHOTOS)

Was the new Spider-Woman comic cover inspired by Nicki Minaj?
Probably not, but there is an uncanny — and kind of uncomfortable — resemblance between the new art for Spider-Woman #1 and the rapper’s NSFW “Anaconda” video.
Designed by Milo Manara, the cover image features Spider-Woman (alternate name: Jessica Drew) down on all fours with her legs spread and butt high in the air.
While the pose does (somewhat) look like a classic Spider-Man climbing/landing position, many have commented that it’s also bizarrely sexual.
Now there’s a parody cover depicting Minaj from her sexually-charged “Anaconda” video as the web slinger.
For the record, the Manara version will be used as an alternate cover — there is a much tamer standard edition.
Check out the comparisons below, and tell us what you think.
