  2. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

  4. Robert Kirkman Comments on Rumors That The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon Might Be Gay

    What? WHAT? YES PLEASE

    Daryl Dixon is the ruggedly-pretty-boy darling of The Walking Dead, but he hasn't actually gotten a whole lot in the way of romantic or sexual attention in the show itself. According to Robert Kirkman, that's intentional. Oh my Zombie-God, does that mean we might get a non-hetero Daryl?

  8. We Need All Voices in Comics (Or I Started the #FireRickRemender Hashtag and I’m Only Kind of Sorry About It)

    Republished with permission.

    Wednesday evening, following my first read of Rick Remender’s Captain America #22, I posted a series of entries to my blog reiterating my distaste for his work, and my renewed (and long-held) belief that he should no longer be writing it.

    Hello, listeners!

    Welcome to Night Vale draws from the weirder elements of The Twilight Zone, the sinister elements of Lovecraft, and the dark humor of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, but there are also oddly progressive aspects to its eponymous fictional town that we don’t always get to see in the real world.
