    Supergirl-y!

    Saturday I attended a panel at Special Edition: NYC, and from what I gathered it was one of the only panels that day that was even nearing maximum capacity.

  6. DC Comics Writer Chuck Dixon Claims His Conservative Politics Lost Him Jobs in Comics

    For A More Civilized Age

    Chuck Dixon has not just written a lot of Batman comics, he was heavily involved in my favorite era of the character, in which the state of Batman's relationships with his various surrogate family members and friends held just as much weight as his triumph over his foes.

From his most popular and longstanding work in the DC Universe alone, you would not immediately guess that Dixon is an outspoken social conservative. This weekend, Dixon and artist Paul Rivoche (whose graphic novel adaptation of a popular conservative reading of the history of the Great Depression hit shelves in the last month) published a post on the Wall Street Journal's opinion section bemoaning the predominantly liberal bias of modern comics (as they see it), claiming that Dixon's career dried up once he started to voice his political views in the workplace, and calling conservative creators of all stripes to take up the torch and catch up to the left wing in their dominance of the market. I think.
