Gail Simone’s Inspiring Tweet-Storm About the Bright Present and Future of Comics

In case you needed some positivity in your day.


Cultural critique is incredibly important, but it can also take a quick turn into focusing on the negative and raining on the parade of all the amazing things that are going right. Today, comics writer Gail Simone took to Twitter to remind us all that no matter how many inappropriate butts get drawn, things are really pretty amazing right now in comics in general, and our voices and desires are only helping them get better in the future.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a selection of the incredible wall of positivity that was Simone’s Twitter profile today, starting where all Twitter rants (positive or negative) start: things we think about in the quiet nighttime hours.

Now there’s a future we want to be a part of.
