I feel like I should clarify something about my thoughts on battling sexism in comics. I’m saying that I’m uncertain how I feel about it. I’m glad to see others with more energy or different opinions taking the fight wherever they feel it needs to be.
Someone at Four Color Comics says I seem “almost resigned, defeated.” I’m sorry I gave that impression, because I don’t think it’s accurate. I haven’t lost — I’m just leaving the fight over a particular city block because there’s a whole metropolis to romp through.
That particular blog post, though, makes a mistake that makes me crazy. Please remember that “superhero comics” is just one (ever-decreasing) part of a whole medium with a growing diversity and audience. Using “superhero comics” and “comics” interchangeably concedes the argument before it’s even begun. That’s something that I also noticed in this otherwise entertaining podcast rant.
