The art in Batgirl is so static and horrible, and this page of issue #3 was the final straw. Where it was supposed to look like Dick was backflipping off the building, the second panel actually made it look like he was going to take off and fly around backwards, and so…

I can’t stop watching
I’m still not over Babsgirl stealing Steph’s cape give it back stealing is wrong
and stop being a walking testament to the erasure of an awesome disabled character
you are not Babs. You are not.

Narration: “This is Lucy. Lucy loved to watch Teen Titans every week on Cartoon Network from 2003 to 2006.
Lucy loved Starfire.”
Lucy: “Starfire can fly and she can shoot firebolts and she wants everyone to be friends and she’s loyal and she loves Robin and she gets her strength from the power of her emotions!”
Narration: “Lucy is now in college. She misses her childhood idol, but Starfire hasn’t been on television for years.
Thankfully, DC Comics is heavily promoting their rebooted comics aimed at new readers!
Comic book Starfire is an amnesiac, emotionally-detatched sex prop who has no friends and who doesn’t enjoy things because enjoying things is super lame.”
Reboot Kory: “I’m bored. Show me your penis.”
Lucy: “You have got to be kidding me.”
Narration: “Lucy will never try another DC comic again.
The Teen Titans cartoon had two million viewers.
Best-case scenario, a comic book will have 100 000 readers.
DC COMICS: BAD AT MATH.”

no business sense whatsoevvvver as long as icky girls are involved.

Seriously guys Amanda Waller was perfect

Whenever I felt bad about things in the DCU I would comfort myself “at least Amanda Waller is still perfection”.

Like, having a plus size black lady who they didn’t ever try to make a fanboy masturbatory fantasy who was an awesome badass HBIC?

You had to fuck up one of your only good things DC congrats

Text

and then DC made Amanda Waller skinny and conventionally attractive

wundy:

why do you want me to hate you DC

why

Seriously?

They screwed with Amanda goddamn Waller?

Even her?

okay fuck you DC even if you gave Cass and Steph their own title made of rainbows I  wouldn’t come back at this point. >:(.

DC Comics SDCC panels: uncomfortable questions about female creators/characters

sharpestrose:

dcwomenkickingass:

The DC Comics panels at SDCC have been filled with what I being told are uncomfortable and awkward moments around the issues of female creators and characters.

Much of this is being driven by a woman attending the DC panels with her young daughter. From people I’ve spoken to the daughter is a tweener — under 14.  The woman is dressed at Batgirl; her daughter as Spoiler. Here’s Comics Alliances reporting on the incident I reported via CBR last night:

On female characters in the Justice League line: A female fan in a Batgirl costume, with daughter dressed as Spoiler, was very upset by what she said was a lack of female characters being featured centrally on the covers in the Justice League line of books. The panelists said they are trying very hard to take diversity seriously in terms of both gender and race. The fan said no such characters were featured prominently on the covers, leading to a somewhat heated and awkward back-and-forth ending with her promising to go count them. The mood of the room was definitely against her, with Lee joking and asking if she wanted the female characters to be “dead center or off-center” on covers.

I heard it was very uncomfortable and the room was aggressively against her. Anyone there to confirm?

Today they showed up at another panel. It was uncomfortable again. David Uzumeri of Comics Alliance said it was the single most awkward panel he’s ever sat in on. I can see why from his story:

On Female Creators: The same Batgirl-clad fan who made appearances at many DC panels over the weekend asked why there aren’t more female creators on DC titles. DiDio said that DC Comics hires the best writers and artists they can, to much applause from the audience.

A huge round of applause, I heard. And certainly not in support of the woman.

Morrison quipped that he looks great in a dress, to which the questioner responded, “I appreciate you trying to brush me off.” Morrison then encouraged women in the audience to submit their work to DC.


CBR reports it this way:

A fan dressed as Batgirl who had been at every DC panel over the weekend asked whether the publisher was committed to hiring more women. Didio said that they were working to put the best talent possible on the books. Morrison asked, “Do more women want to write DC superheroes?” and when many female fans responded “Yes!” he simply added “Then send your stuff in.”

They hire the best. Ah, there’s your answer. And they certainly must know who the best female creators are, right?

Here’s Didio Thursday night:

Now I come to you — what do we have to do for you to change your mind?”

“Hire more women. You went from 12% women to 1% women.”

“Who should we have hired?” DiDio demanded.

Didio was also asked about female characters at the 52 panel today, here’s the exchange via Newsarama:

First Fan is asking about the status of the “missing” DC female characters, and in general asking how is DC behind female characters?
11:53 DiDio “Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Birds of Prey, Dove, female leads in every team book”
11:53

“I’d like to match up female leads in our books up against any other company out ther, I think we have the best percentage out there


I appreciate the effort of this woman and her daughter and if anyone sees her thank her for bringing up these questions.

This is so fucking vile I want to throw up and cry. Fuck Didio. And fuck Johns and Morrison and Lee, all of whom I’ve had positive experiences with in the past, but who are now all opting to participate in the silencing and dismissal of anyone female who wants to even think about DC Comics for a brief moment. 

My tumblr dash is full of Korra today, which just makes it even more fucking obvious how irrelevant and ridiculous and utterly repulsive DC Comics are these days. 

Bolded and italicized for FUCKING PREACH.

"On Donna Troy and Cassandra Cain, the panelists are silent."

FUCK YOU DC. LEGIT, FUCK YOU.
