John Cleese on Creativity. Brian Michael Bendis sent to me this morning. I highly recommend you listen to it. Maybe I’ll post some follow up vids to this kind of thing.
…I think it’s funny that DC is trying to force-feed its readers the Fauxmance that is Supes/Wondy because they think that’s the best way to attract female readers because a lot of the people who are shipping them something fierce are NOT FEMALE.
Seriously, if DC thinks that going down that route will get me to read their comics, then they really don’t know the minds of their female readers very well.
Medusa sketch. Just suddenly got the urge to draw her. #greekmythology #medusa #sketches #doodles
On facebook, this article has received quite a number of demeaning posts about Lois. So I’m sorry, DC, but when your readers insult one of your most iconic non-superhero characters, it means YOU FUCKED IT UP.
My comment: “Honestly, some people here blather like there’s nothing likeable about Lois. And they have to do this just to elevate WW. I like both female characters, but for goodness sakes, I didn’t start reading Superman or Wonder Woman in the hopes that they hook up. What the hell kind of condescension is that?! And these demeaning comments about Lois just so another female can be put on a pedestal goes to show that double standards for women are still prevalent. Put down the average Jane because she’ll never be good enough compared to the supermodel, ignore what both women have accomplished and focus on the one wearing the booty shorts while insulting the other because she’s the colleague you don’t know how to get along with. Nice going, world.”
