SJWs just can't get into the hobby for the leisure
Caulkins took the back door into comics, gravitating toward characters that operated toward the fringes of their respective universes. As a gay man, he is on the lookout for stories that include LGBT representation, characters that were difficult to find in the pages of titles like “Captain America” or “Iron Man.”Sounds like the kind of social justice warrior who didn't get into the hobby for pure escapism, but rather, for politicized reasons. When I look about for stories these days, it's anything that can offer decent entertainment without sledgehammering the audience with the mentality the above goes by. Despite what they say, I wouldn't be shocked if the current CA and IM series do have what he considers such a big deal.
He believes that times are changing though.Oh, it's certainly "resonating" alright. At laughable levels often well below 100,000 copies sold. Even the paperback collections don't seem to do much better. The whole marketing model is now a joke. And that's because the publishers, stunningly enough, are uninterested in catering to larger audiences. None of which interests anyone involved in the writing of the article, predictably.
Caulkins called the comic-themed Netflix shows amazing — but he also mentioned the energy and resources he’s noticed both Marvel and DC Comics devoting to more diverse storytelling that can resonate with a wider audience.
And there's one example of a SJW who sees his whole way of thinking as such a big deal, but probably not quality of storytelling development.
