One’s too many and a hundred ain’t enough.

100% truth

never heard of her.
If feminists wish to be accepted in the comic industry, or any industry, then make something of genuine worth and individuality, instead of a statement about gender inequality by just flipping organs between parties.
Why is Ellen/ Robin Williams popular as a comedian? Because s/he’s good at it. Why are Dane Cook/Sarah Silverman  on the fringes of an industry? Because they fucking suck ass.
Gender does not matter. Stand on creative merit!

Yikes.

Hate for female characters in TV fandoms: TWD, Smallville etc.

arrowfan1:

As you all know I like to repost stuff that I find online. This is is really good post about how female characters are being viewed by the fandom. Credits should go to “The Rebel-Jimmy Dean”:

It’s truly amazing how many fans seem to just HATE female characters on TV shows.

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014

Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.

I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.

Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.

What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.

Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

Yes indeed

CARTOONISTS CELEBRATE HAROLD RAMIS WITH TOUCHING TRIBUTES

By Chris Sims

Like everyone else, the staff of ComicsAlliance was deeply saddened this week by the death of Harold Ramis. As an actor, writer and director, Ramis had a hand in crafting some of the films that shaped our lives and our sense of humor, including CaddyshackAnimal House and, of course, Ghostbusters, where he played the deadpan Dr. Egon Spengler and cracked up countless moviegoers just by telling them print was dead.

Ramis leaves behind an incredible legacy in the world of film, but artists across the world reacted to the news with their own tributes to the man and his work.

The Puzzling Lack of Kid-Friendly Wonder Woman Comics

dcwomenkickingass:

During the last few days I’ve been asked about two Wonder Woman items a number of times. The possible new creative team is one and I’ll be putting together some thoughts on that. Second, is my reaction to this post on CBR, "My 10 Year-Old Daughter Couldn’t Care Less About Wonder Woman."

It’s a good read so go take a look. She notes that Wonder Woman is not pervasive as a role model for girls in pop culture is absolutely true. She hasn’t had a TV show in 35 year; has never a big screen movie; she has had not ever had a kid friendly comics that focus exclusively on her. And there are so few kid’s toys that feature Wonder Woman that I have written entire posts on them when they show up. By contrast if I did that for, say, Batman there would be an entire blog devoted to it. Oh wait, there is one.

And I absolutely agree with the writer’s concern about her daughter not caring about Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a great character for girls - powerful, wise, smart and, when written correctly, one who chooses peace over war and love over hate. One who fights for good and equality. Plus she has an invisible plane. Who wouldn’t want to be like her?

Obviously this little girl does.

So I have to ask, “so why isn’t there a Wonder Woman all-ages comic?”
