A British comics publisher doesn't want whites at conventions

Zainab Akhtar, who's worked in the British comics scene for some time, wants everyone to know she doesn't want whites at the conventions:

I guess the list of whites who she believes need not attend includes Stan Lee, Marv Wolfman, Chris Claremont and Roy Thomas, among others, right? She's an utter disgrace, yet her comment does indicate what's gone wrong with the UK comics industry as much as the USA industry.

*Ahem* There's plenty of black/Asian cartoonists attending all sorts of conventions. Even Latino/mixed, like George Perez. So quit trying to cast false pictures of the industry as a whole. If she's got this low an opinion of whites, she should just quit working in comics.

Labels: , , , ,

If they're a comic publisher, then publish books by "creators of color other than white" and bring them to represent their books. Problem solved.

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.
