As though it weren't bad enough International Women's Day was being hijacked by ultra-leftists
, now the former DC editor Shelly Bond's suggesting she wasn't such a big loss to the publisher by putting out an anthology at IDW with political motivations
called Femme Magnifique, all because Trump won, and look what kind of political figures it'll contain:
Booth and Gillen’s subject matter, yet to be revealed, are just two of the many stories which will appear in Femme Magnifique, ranging from Jane Fonda to Hillary Clinton, astronaut Sally Ride to Nina Simone, Hedy Lamarr to Joan of Arc. Bond says, “It’s nothing short of a celebration of women, dreamers, achievers, glass ceiling crackers, fearless innovators of our history.”
While Ride and Jeanne d'Arc are interesting stories that could certainly be told in illustrated format, the inclusion of Clinton and Fonda is galling. In the case of the latter, it's sickening, because she was notorious for siding with the Viet Cong
in Vietnam. Why do I get the feeling no mention will be made of that fact, and that there'll certainly be no condemnation of Fonda for slighting the US victims of communism
? Terrible stuff like that is exactly why I have a hard time appreciating her role in the Barbarella film adaptation from 1968; it's better to just read the original comic strips.
There’s still a little over a week to pledge to the Kickstarter campaign and push Femme Magnifique past its stretch goals. Then the hard work starts in getting the book ready for publication towards the end of 2017… pretty much a year on from Shelly Bond watching with mounting horror the US presidential election results stack up in favour of Donald Trump. [...]
Yeah, I get it. She bought into every distortion told about him, hook, line and sinker. But clearly, no horror at the oppression of women in the Muslim world
, and there's nothing in this article to suggest they're going to print anthology stories honoring women like Ayaan Hirsi Ali
, to name but one example of a woman deserving of respect, far more than Fonda and Clinton are. If Bond can only think of doing something political, then she shouldn't have bothered to enter comicdom, and nobody sane should contribute to her Kickstarter campaign for this anthology.
