What else took place at the Delhi comicon

Here's an extra article from The Hindu about Delhi's comiccon, which tells the following of what contributors were there, and the following is eyebrow raising:
Happy Fluff Comics creator Akshara Ashok, who focuses on lifestyle, feminism and body positivity said a lot of people still look down upon women-centric content, which is why she uses humour to make it relatable and get her message across effectively.
If this is an allusion to the whole notion obesity is inherently acceptable and healthy for women, it's a shame they're fine with hosting such propagandists there. It's also head-shaking how this whole claim of disinterest in women-centric content continues being pushed around, when merit is what should determine whether the finished product is worth buying and praising. And a lot of the stories built along those ideologies are sorely lacking.
Delhi Comic Con also hosted international artists like Rick Leonardi, the creator of various popular Marvel and DC characters including Spiderman 2099 and Matt Hawkins, the President of Image Comics, the third largest comic book producer in the United States, after Marvel and DC. Hawkins spoke about how the business has changed dramatically over the last three decades. Earlier, it was primarily 32 pages books that came out on a monthly basis, whereas now graphic novels come out every fortnight.
If memory serves, Hawkins is a leftist who's got his own share of changing the medium for the worse, so I'm not sure if what he says counts much. At least if GNs in paperback/hardcover format are more common now, that's a definite plus.

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.
