|At least...I think that's why I keep doing it. Sometimes I think I'm just a masochist.|
On rare occasions, I decide to interact with these feral creatures who may or may not actually read comics. I find them to be pretty boring, mostly. They often repeat the same tired old insults, beating on that drum that declares that new things are inherently bad and that all female characters should be drawn so that they can lust after them sexually rather than enjoy or identify with them as actual characters. We've touched on this mentality before too, but then it was with some creators who seem to think sexism is okay in the modern industry. It's not and it never really was. Now, while the world of comics is still largely a boys' club, that has been changing more and more. There are tons of female fans and they want to read books that aren't about objectifying women but rather ones that might treat them like actual people.
|You know, rather than write them as emotionless sex dolls who barely wear clothing.|
|Which hurts when you recall that they actually were good at the exact opposite in the past.|
|That may actually be the secret behind the plot of Event Horizon, as nothing is more grim-dark than a nice trip to Hell.|
|Spoiler alert: Galactus finally has a brand new bag and that means we won't see the same story of him eating shit again.|

- The guy who hates the Big Two (Marvel & DC) and makes note of how he is very happy not to read their books...while in a thread about one of their books.
- The same guy then responding with hostility when I express how happy I am that he can see into the future at how bad this book is. Also, I may have implied he was an elitist, which he kind of is with his whole "I'm skipping all books from this publisher because I only read indie" thing.
- A long comment with terrible grammar where I am called "Brain" and an elitist, even though I previously expressed that I read good comics regardless of what company publishes them.
|Yes, the guy who defends the Howard the Duck film is totally an elitist. Also, dirt tastes like chocolate.|
|Pedobear must speak out against this sort of stuff fairly often for this comparison to exist, because otherwise it's just stupid.|
|And seriously? This book deserves hate but Mark Millar still gets love? I call shenanigans!|
