I sometimes joke about the comics industry being a business run entirely by people who got picked on in grade school and never got over it. But this is no laughing matter. This shit needs to stop:

I really liked this piece on the influx of female creators and fans in mainstream comics:

Glorianna just texted me: "Why didn't anyone tell me this was an option?!?"

In an industry that revolves around fictional "heroes", this kind of behavior is beyond disgusting:

Should be obvious, but needs to be said:

For crying out loud. How is this even an issue? Us geeks are supposed to be the *smart*, *broad-minded* ones. What kind of heart-three-sizes-too-small Grinch do you have to be to view the influx of women into fandom as anything but awesome? Glad to see women *and* men making some noise about this issue, though.
