As you probably know by now, Heidi MacDonald has set up new blog digs at Publishers Weekly.
What you may not know is that Marc Mason has also moved, taking “Should It Be A Movie?” and his reviews to the Comics Waiting Room.
Following up on some previous stories:
Retailer MacGuffin has some thoughts on sales of late books, noting that graphic novels tend to be less affected.
Katherine has some wonderful elaboration on the Nan Grant in light of male privilege and the concept of what is “deserved”.
Heidi MacDonald also comments:
Are you as sick as we are of all these message board arguments that go something like this: “Women creators shouldn’t be judged separately. It’s a wonderful new era! It’s just that there have never been many good ones!” Yes, we can see how a young creator entering the field would find that a welcoming sign of encouragement and a signal that her work would be judged solely on its merits.
Before I leave the subject of women in comics, here’s a newsflash: James Meeley is still a jerk. First, he tells “”feminist comic fans” that they “need to remember” that their, ugh, “impatience” hurts the cause of feminism by turning “people” off.” Then, when tide of public attention turned against him, he created a sock puppet and “defended himself in the third person as if he were someone else entirely.”
