Hi all! *glomp* Since the chat is down (for reasons of reasons I do not get) and I cannae ramble there (or elsewhere - has anyone tried a rambling walk on a computer? Messy.) I thought I'd ramble here - about comics related stuff and... stuff. So anyway I'm browsing previews online and I encounter "...

Re: Sexism & Violence In the Comic Industry

DC seems to be putting its foot in its mouth a lot lately re: sexism and inappropriateness. Take the next link for example http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=55907 I'm not even going to go there, as it looks like the product has been condemned (and rightly so, does DC really think pe...
