A missed opportunity

I read about this incident at the Comic-Con where a member of the audience brought up the lack of female writers/editors at DC.

I suppose there's some meat to that argument, but I think it could've been just as effective to call on them to get rid of all the effects they've been using since Identity Crisis, and still look very likely to carry on with even now.

Now maybe someone has tried that over the past few years, and it's deliberately been ignored by the mainstream press. But if not, then this was another missed opportunity to demand something much better from them, not to mention the resignation of Dan DiDio altogether.

A tad belated, but I found this, last night.

It's a start, yes? Wonder if the same will be applied to Marvel, if not already.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
