Added DiffLines:

* SexyPackaging: The covers of the original run were notoriously {{fanservice}}y, featuring well-developed women scantily-clad or [[SceneryCensor nude but obscured]]. While these covers appealed to teenage boys of all ages, the most prolific artist was the female Margaret Brundage.
