MAC Cosmetics has debuted a commercial for its Wonder Woman themed makeup line, featuring animations by Michael Allred.
Call us nutso, but this seems to be one of the more successful attempts at a “mocom” — probably because it wasn’t just a comic book to begin with but was conceived as limited animation.
The Comics Alliance people found this video a troubling vessel for the message that women must wear makeup to be accepted…a message shared by 86 percent of all US media. Anyway, where’s our Russian Red?
