We just came across this terrific roundtable discussion at ComicsAlliance:
“We decided to assemble several of the most prominent women in comics media to talk about the geek girl phenomenon, how things have changed (or not) over the last couple decades, and the way women in comics are regarded by the mainstream media, superhero comics, and other female fans.
“ComicsAlliance Editor-in-Chief Laura Hudson teamed up with Blair Butler, the host of G4’s Fresh Ink, Heidi MacDonald, the editor of The Beat, and Jill Pantozzi, a contributor to sites including Newsarama and Publishers Weekly to discuss.” More.
Editor Jane Eisner said it best this week: “His work is provocative and sometimes infuriating — Commentary called him “ferociously repugnant,” which I expect he takes as a compliment. His elaborately drawn, meticulously researched pieces hold an unsparing mirror before our community, allowing us to pierce hypocrisy and silliness, toward a better understanding of the Jewish condition in America today.” What more can you ask for?
