As it seems you're putting so much of yourself into Magneto (cf. the earlier baldness statement) can we expect to see the character torn apart by anger and regret that the small-readership periodical about women's interests he had been secretly publishing was cruelly cancelled after just twelve issues?
If Magneto was publishing the periodical, he would have been angry at himself for cancelling it. C’mon. If you;re gonna bother with snark, think it through!
And this Boys and Girls, is what it looks like when a little scared person chooses to use the anonymity of the internet to try and come off as funny or witty. In all reality, “Anonymous” clearly has little to no grasp on the character of Mr. Bunn. Or perhaps He or She does, hence the reason they chose to remain Anonymous and fire off random statements without possessing the strength of character to step out from behind the Anonymous button and allow us to critique his or her work. Perhaps the clear display of impotent rage by such a person is because they have nothing to show for their lives. Perhaps “Anonymous” is some sad wretch who has toiled away writing fan fictions about Vampire Ninjas named Dirk Dark Light Raven Blood Claw the coolest person in high school and how they have 3 swords, and a ninja gun and more than likely some kind of demon raven bat pet that calls them master. Only to have those stories turned down by publishers and friends, who would rather have lemon juice dripped into there eyes than to sit through another page of “Anonymous’s” writing, so the only outlet for their clear display of self hate is to try and find flaws with a writer who clearly has a large body of work to show for himself. Ahhh the the internet, what a wonderful thing it can be.
I’m gonna have to call Gail out here because I think she may have misunderstood the question. I would really hate to see anyone discouraged from doing anything they love because of their gender, race, sexuality, or social class.
Tumblr user iwillbattle, if you’d love to break into comics, please try and please do and good luck to you. The industry needs more of everyone and everything of all types, but above all it needs more great writers and artists, period.
Now, in terms of what you create? Sure, the industry needs something more innovative and more diverse than what it has.
But in terms of who you are as a creator? Never let that discourage you.
I think Gail misunderstood the question because even she knows simply reversing prejudice is just as wrong.
People need to just read the comics they talk about. Like, that’s it. That’s all. Read the books you talk about. Watch the movies you talk about, or the shows, or whatever else.
It’d be like me buying one of those huge Sandman books and just putting it on display, but then talking about the book even though I’d never opened it and read it. It wouldn’t make sense. It would be ridiculous.
