  1. Denver Comic Con’s All-Male “Women in Comics” Panel Causes Concern Among Comics Fans

    What, Trina Robbins wasn't available?

    It'll be nice when we don't need things like "women in comics" panels anymore. When the work of women in the industry and discussion of female characters will stand side by side with that of men and given the same priority and thoughtful debate as that of male creators and male characters. Until then, we need them, if only to remind the world that not only do women read, create, and love comics now, but they always have - despite a seeming erasure of women from comics history.

    "Just don't be a dick!'

    "I think there's a lot of mythology about what a man or a woman is supposed to be, a lot of mythology about what gay men and gay women are supposed to be. There's just a lot of storytelling surrounding human beings and what sexuality and gender identity means to your value. It's all a lie. And it's a lie we've been told for many many years, and it's destructive and exclusionary and I resent it. "
