Charity Shouldn’t Have To Be The Only Option For Comic Creators In Need Of Medical CareBy Matt D. Wilson
If you weren’t aware of it before the past few weeks, even a passing interest in the recent Internet comics community likely informed you of the medical-expense-related plight a high-profile pair of comic book creators have been experiencing . First, there was Stan Sakai, the creator of Usagi Yojimbo, in dire straits because of an extended hospital stay for his wife, Sharon. Then there’s Bill Mantlo, the co-creator of Rocket Raccoon, who was severely injured in a skating accident 22 years ago and has required full-time care ever since. (He’s been under care for two decades, but Rocket’s appearance in the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie has brought him back into the public eye.)
Both of these men have had to turn to donations from fans and colleagues to help with their considerable expenses, and those people have made admirable efforts to help these creative artists whose work has brightened their lives. Generosity is a good thing. But it shouldn’t have to be this way.

Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics. 

I hate going into the gaming stores alone. Ugh.

I will continously write this reply until I feel it sticks. Do you want to know why many male nerds are so defensive and harsh about this?

Okey, I can with confidence tell you that the majority of us started this out as a form of escapism. I mean, look at all the tumblr posts about “I love fiction, it’s my way to handle reality” etc etc. It was the same for us. suddenly.. about, idk, 4-5 years ago, feminists started to tell us that we are in the wrong for BUYING things. Instead of going to the writers, we’re the bad guys. Comics I grew up with are being torn to pieces by people who don’t read them anyway. They’re causalized because instead of catering to us, they’re catering to people who don’t really care. I know that the majority of you will go “oh, grow up!”, but you know what? Fuck you, comics were one of the things I had growing up, I emotionally connected to the Hulk, it made me feel that maybe it wasn’t so bad to be a freak.

secondly, I don’t know why women expect to get help with everything and just give up when they don’t get help. When I started out, do you really think anyone would even care about a fat, acne-cursed kid? I did ask, once, they just looked at me and told me to just read the damn comics. So I did. I got into the middle of a story, If I liked it, I tried to hunt down the first one, or the one after. Rinse and repeat. not hard. But now! NOW! You have google, I’m not even kidding, it will take you 30 secs to find ALL information you want. I don’t know why everyone think that being a nerd is “share and share alike!”, it’s socially outcast people who have been wrecked emotionally and socially by other people. You really think that they’re gonna help you without a reason?

I know, it’s really “in” to be a nerd these days, but you’re not a nerd until you know your shit. Don’t believe me?

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/nerd?q=nerd

Being a nerd isn’t something that you flaunt, you’re not gonna get help getting into it, you’re not gonna get praise for trying to. read, then read some more, then read even more. Then doublecheck that info. Not because you’re gonna be “safe” when trying to have people acknowledge your “nerd-cred”, but because you LOVE IT! It’s not a social thing, it has never been. It’s not about sitting around a table and going “OMG! I’m such a nerd! I read a couple of books!”.

Sounds harsh? yeah, it is. But, if you love it, it won’t matter. Cuz you will still have the time of your life. And really.. no one promised to help you. want help? help yourself.

*preparing to get unfollowed by everyone*

btw, I’m not saying that no one can like the same things as me/nerds/others. I’m saying “you’re not special for doing that” and “LOVE IT MORE! If you can’t find basic facts without being spoonfed, do you really LOVE it?”

Okay, you pedantic asshole, listen here.

You read a comic by a woman who reads, cares about, and EARNS A PAYCHECK from comics, that has been reblogged LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF TIMES by other women/minorities who read, care about, and earn paychecks from comics, and you have to gall to say that comics are “catering to people who don’t really care”?

Because you were picked last at kickball and now YOU want to be the bully. Because someone told you you weren’t worthy of something, now you want to be the one to tell other people that they’re not worthy of something. 

First you say “this is escapism for us men” and then you say “no one HELPED me get into it” as if having a medium LITERALLY CONSTRUCTED AROUND PEOPLE WHO ARE EXACTLY LIKE YOU isn’t the biggest spoonfeeding you could possibly get. 

And now there’s a whole lot of people who don’t fit YOUR very narrow definition of what a “true nerd” can be who are FIGHTING UPHILL to be a part of this thing they love that doesn’t love them back and you have the nerve to say they don’t CARE about it enough and they’re expecting special treatment. As if it’s special treatment to BE SAFE FROM HARASSMENT, SEXUALIZATION, AND CONDESCENSION IN A PUBLIC SPACE.

No one’s taking comics away from straight white men. But I certainly wouldn’t taking it out of the hands of men like you, that’s for sure. You’re dinosaurs. And you’re not a REAL nerd.

and not the cool kind of dinosaurs either.

Original frontispiece by Frank Miller from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (10th Anniversary Edition), published by DC Comics, 1997.

This makes me so happy because now I know that those fucking marker lines don’t go away. It’s not just me being a bad artist.

they scan it and up the contrast then reprint it for serialization and prints.
this is my favorite batman and robin.

Midnight Shocker: Haden and Williams Walk Off Batwoman
Citing too much editorial interference, J. H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman announced their exit from Batwoman.
Read More

"We were told to ditch plans for Killer Croc’s origins; forced to drastically alter the original ending of our current arc, which would have defined Batwoman’s heroic future in bold new ways; and, most crushingly, prohibited from ever showing Kate and Maggie actually getting married. All of these editorial decisions came at the last minute, and always after a year or more of planning and plotting on our end.”
That sentence better not mean what I fucking think it means.

#nono lesbians are hot #but marriage equality is icky

gently sets down cup of tea
sweeps entire teaset to the floor
kicks over the table
exits

ha haaaaaaaaa

I AM MAKE SAD literally the only ‘comic book super hero’ I care about and this fucking happens……

dear tumblr. i need comic book sources!

you know how those posts are going around about the innacuracies of female characters in comic books? with their spines bent out of shape and ridiculous proportions? well, i’m writing my paper on the images in comic books of women and i need some juicy sources (like publisher, book # and page) that i can use to illustrate my point to infer that looking at these fictional chicks does weird stuff to people. they can be images of women with impossible proportions, ridiculous outfits, or that just tend to be shown in gender-biased situations. examples with pictures would be preferable, but i’m willing to do some digging to find them myself.

note: they can be from any comic, but the main ones i’m focusing on are DC, Marvel, Shonen Jump, Weekly Shonen Magazine, Chao, and Nakayoshi. i don’t have any examples currently from Chao or Nakayoshi so if you know some from those serializations PLEASE send them this way.

reblog this with sources and/or send me some at my email! lychee.dragondragon@gmail.com. especially if you find some really good ones! as long as they’re not pornographic serializations i can probably use anything you throw at me! 

thankyou!~
