So I just read through a bunch of your posts about Rogue Trooper and it's fairly shitty way of treating it's female characters. Just thought I'd ask, given that reperesentation and diversity is a pretty hot talking point in the comic book community at the moment, what are your thoughts on the issue with 2000ad these days?
2000AD these days is so ahead of the curve when it comes to female characters, it’s noticeable when they screw it up. They’ve raised the bar high enough and kept it there for long enough that there’s expectations to be met, which I imagine is kind of an awkward place to be, but also a worthy one. Odds are we wouldn’t complain as hard about an artist drawing the 50-year old Anderson as a sexy 20-something if this was a more commonplace occurrence.
Longer answer (with pictures and all) after the jump:
Guys. We need to talk about something. I’m tired of all the bigotry. I’m tired of all the hatred. I’m tired of people just not accepting. You don’t have to like everyone or everything. That’s not what I’m saying and to ask that would be ridiculous. But all milk shakes are created equal regardless of flavor. Spread this message and help put an end to Lactose Intolerance.
