Since we're on the subject of Dynamite's needless placation of SJW whiners with even semi-practical outfits for the heroines they're publishing stories about, here's something on Tech Times
that I don't think I'd paid full attention to before, where Gail Simone says something ludicrous. First though:
These ladies are about to get a wardrobe upgrade, with a look that's altered for a modern take on their iconic costumes.
"A modern take"? And what's that supposed to mean? That the bikini-style outfits they usually wore in the past are throughly dated and shameful? If I were Edgar Rice Burroughs, I'd be turning in my grave to hear how people like that are repaying him for all the favors he tried to do in his time. Now, here's what Simone says at the end:
As regards the accessibility of the new series, Simone says, "You don't need to know their history, you just need to like awesome damn women doing awesome damn stuff. Come join us!"
That sure sounds fishy. Why shouldn't anyone know their history? Does that mean she doesn't recognize how helpful the internet's been for research either? And unless Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris and Vampirella are scripted
awesomely, which may not be so much the case with the way she's been going of late, how can they truly be awesome? Telling people history doesn't matter isn't helpful, and disregards many of the past creators and writers who did such hard work to produce the entertainment products she's working on now. Indeed, why isn't she even saying whether they're going to keep remaining faithful to Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, Forest J. Ackerman, Trina Robbins and even Roy Thomas, who developed Red Sonja from a character featured in one of the original Conan books? Maybe because they know these superficial alterations alone don't guarantee a well written tale?
