Comic Book Burlesque: A Geek's Wet Dream

Attention Geeks:  You no longer have to wait for Comic Con to see your favorite sexy Superhero, and Sci-Fi vixens in person.  Devil's Playground, an LA based burlesque troupe presented by sexy mastermind Courtney Cruz, takes some of your favorite characters and spices them up.  They had a huge success recently with Star Wars Burlesque (and the sequel, The Fempire Strikes Back) but they've covered everything else from comic book characters to video game vixens. While some characters like Princess Leia, Poison Ivy and Metroid's Samus beg to be in a burlesque show, others (like Jabba the Hutt) took some creative work.  Here are some of the photos from their previous shows.  We've come a long way since the pixelated beauty of Princess Peach. Enjoy!
