A sex-positive space adventure suffers from having a leftist co-writer who'd earlier crafted a bad idea

Newsarama's announced the comedienne Sarah Beattie's co-written Money Shot, a space adventure comic with a sex-positive approach, that's got one problem: it's co-written by Tim Seeley, author of the disturbing Imaginary Fiends:
Space exploration has been a dream for mankind for centuries, but here now when we can travel in space - the only thing holding us up from doing more of it is money.

Tim Seeley has found a possible answer to that - porn - and is bringing in a secret weapon of sorts to tell that story: comedian/actor Sarah Beattie.

Beattie has become a phenonemon in comedy for raunchy and ribald humor. She's written for TV including Saturday Night Live, but she's best-known on Twitter with over 440,000 followers tuning in for her witty barbs.

While she's read comics and been friends with comic creators like Seeley for years, Beattie hadn't really considered writing comics until recently. [...]

For fans of Beattie, Money Shot is right up her alley - space exploration funded by porn. It's a mix of sex and science fiction, but moreso on the sex. [...]

Sexual without being lewd, Money Shot is a sex-positive approach to science fiction - and that's important for Beattie.

"Sex is great and fun and fun and great, it shouldn't be treated as something negative, especially when it comes to females,"
she said. "We're allowed to be horny motherf%&kers too and it's a message I strongly believe in. It's a family book, really."
Regarding Beattie, she's talking sense. Much of the sex-negative propaganda seen in media today is noxious to women's status, sometimes even more so than to men. But considering what a horrific abomination Seeley cooked up with his 9-11 propaganda screed, it's a fascinating query whether anybody in the know wants to bankroll Money Shot for him, if he hasn't repented clearly after concocting such a nasty tale at the expense of the victims of Islam during 2001's attack on the WTC. To support a book like Money Shot now will certainly require separating art from artist.

Sex-positive marketing is certainly impressive and bold, but it's regrettable when an author who pulled a serious insult to the intellect has to be the helmer of the project. If Seeley's writing Money Shot as a means to apologize for his past mistake, that's good, but if he hasn't shown remorse, that makes it difficult to believe he's really trying to compensate for past errors.
