  1. I got some serious Deja Vu with this episode. I could have sworn I heard this weeks ago… anyhow hey have any of you guys read Alan Moore’s Fashion Beast? It was tragically overlooked and is kind of a masterpiece in its way, I’d be interested to hear your guys take on it. Should be available in trade and hardcover now.

  2. Kelly Sue DeConnick hit the nail right on the head here. Great interview. People seem obsessed with this idea that people in comics can’t write a good female character and comics are sexist. The fact is that for every cliched, horrible female character there is in comics, there are equally as many male characters. Last I checked the males I knew weren’t 8 feet tall, ripped, flawless, perfect people just as most of the females I know aren’t Barbie dolls with impossible posture in unzipped jumpsuits. A bad writer is a bad writer, if a writer can’t write a good female character, the chances are his male characters are just as terrible. The only sexism in comics are the people who seem to constantly drawing attention to that fact. So far every comic I’m reading has brilliant female characters and the writers are people like Scott Snyder, Matt Fraction, Gail Simone, Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka, Ed Brubaker and obviously Kelly Sue. And they are all great writers. Everyone needs to stop bringing up that people can’t write good female characters and paying attention to the fact that they can’t write good characters PERIOD. It’s got nothing to do with sex. Just talent. But then again the day comic fans stop complaining about nonexistant problems is the day I shoot lasers out of my eyes and punch Buddha in the groin.
