Let's talk about how some men talk to women in comics

gimpnelly:

Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…

My friend, Janelle Asselin talks about the bullshit comments she’s had to endure since she wrote an article critiquing a cover,And I agree with her points. Particularly about the insensitive hypernerds who attacked ger after the fact.

Give Comics for the Holidays

We’re entering that magical time of year in which many people pull their hair out over gifts for that person who has everything. Sometimes finding the right gift can seem—

"--IMPOSSIBLE" from Molly Danger

Fret not, perennially perplexed present purchasers! I’m here to give you the good news: Comics make a fantastic gift…

That uncomfortable feeling…. Sex and Comic book creators.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the Brian Wood allegations of late. I’m not there, I’ve never been there. I’ve dated one woman that I met working in comics. I’ve certainly have been attracted to many women that I consider friends and colleagues. I would hope that I never came off as untoward but I also never actively made advances towards any of the women i’ve worked with. I don’t know Brian, we’ve met, but we’re not friends and don’t travel in the same circles, So I can’t defend him, but I also won’t condemn him either.

 I’m also not discounting what Tess Fowler, or some of the others have made public. However, theres a part of me that knows that outside of my work life, I had a very active dating life when I was single,and I may not have always approached it the right way. As individuals, or perception of events differ from others (The classic your version, my version and the truth somewhere in the middle comes to mind.) . the problem I have is we have reached a point in our technology, where the ability to demonize strangers, harass them, torture them has become to easy. 

Is there sexism in comics? Hell yes. There’s also an undercurrent of racism too. Is it good to have the conversation and try to change things, yes. However as Heidi MacDonald pointed out in her excellent article :” None of what I’ve just written about is comics behavior. It’s HUMAN behavior. There are jerks and assholes in every industry. In all the vast body of writing about the increasing tensions of men and women — many attractive, most sexually active—interacting in the comics sphere there is bad stuff that is singular to our corner of the world, but most of it is everywhere. And as women enter the field in ever greater capacities—as readers, as creators, as fans—these problems have become more common.”

I don’t have a catch all answer to how to change things. We live in industry that is filled with people who don’t have great interpersonal skills. The concepts of personal space and inappropriate behavior tend to blur for some. Add to the mix talented, attractive, intelligent women who share the same interests that they do and some guys (And some gals too, let’s be honest) Don’t know what to do with themselves. (I once had a woman continuous try to paw on me at a show, grabbing my ass and aiming occasionally for the crotch.) cosplayers, who for the most part try to replicate the sexier costume designs from comics, etc. constantly have to deal with pawing hands.

There’s a part of me that wants to say “It was nearly a decade ago, people change”, but again, I wasn’t there, i’m not a woman and I can’t speak from that perspective, but as a father, I would hope that Catherine would show the same bravery as Tess Fowler and others have.

I don’t think trying to ruin Brian Woods career is the answer either.

AudioComics and Action Labs present Jamal Igle’s MOLLY DANGER!

Molly Danger Art

In 2013, the audio movie studio AudioComics will release its newest AC Kids title based on the forthcoming children’s graphic novel series from industry superstar Jamal Igle (Action ComicsSupergirl,FirestormDaredevil/Shi): Molly Danger!

Produced in association with Action Lab Entertainment, and directed by AudioComics co-founder William Dufris, Molly is “the princess of finesse,” the most powerful ten-year old in the world. Protector of Coopersville, New York from the villainous Supermechs, including Two-Fisted Tommy and Lil’ Cavey, she has legions of devoted fans, movies and merchandise bearing her name, and more fame than anyone can fathom. But what she really wants more than anything…is a friend. A family. And a real life.

Meanwhile, the forces of evil are converging to rock Molly’s world. For 20 years she has been led to believe that she’s an immortal alien whose family died when their ship crash-landed on Earth, genetically altered by the earth’s atmosphere. She also believes that she is the last of her people. She is wrong–very wrong…

As with AudioComics’ productions of Titanium RainStarstruck, and Honey West: Murder on Mars, the finished work will be available on both compact disc and pay-per-Mp3 digital download, with cover art by Igle, and for sale through AudioComics’ and Action Lab’s websites, iTunes, Amazon, and at comic book and sci-fi conventions.

“This is another exciting step in getting the Action Lab brand known to comic book fans everywhere,” explained Action Lab President Kevin Freeman. “Jamal is one of the nicest guys in the industry, and not only does Molly Danger look spectacular on the printed page, but it is perfectly suited for the AudioComics treatment. We couldn’t be happier.”

Molly Danger, Episode One features the vocal talents of: OLIVIA DuFORD, ROBIN MILES, LANCE ROGER AXT, MICHAEL HOWARD, JOSHUA HUGHES, DAVE MARSHALL, JAY PISCOPO, JUSTIN REID, TESS VAN HORN, and JENNYWREN WALKER, with WILLIAM DUFRIS, and special appearances by JAMAL IGLE and ELAINE LEE.
