Preparing for the Revolution
Regarding the conversation about hostility towards women in comics -- It appears to me that things are changing for the better, no? In the past few years, more and more amazingly talented female creators have been coming in to the industry (Sara Pichelli, Gail Simone, Becky Cloonan, Kelly Sue, G Willow, Ming Doyle…), changing the status quo of comics and thus the opinions of fans. Sure, theres some resistance from the dummies, but aren't things VASTLY improving??

I get a lot of crap for being Mr. positive from people who are having a hard time seeing the cup half-full but I completely agree with you.

 I think things are vastly better than they were and that only makes the shitheads stand out even more.  things are not perfect, all of society’s problems are not solved, but I do think the good guys are winning.

 the only thing that is really bothering me about all of this is that there are some people who are letting the idiots get the best of them and are turning away from the medium that I love so much and has so much to offer all of us.

 I hope they reconsider.

KSD got a spotlight panel all to herself at WonderCon this year! Josie Campbell, staff writer at Comicbookresources reported on what went on.

Williamsburg venue Glasslands was featured in tonight’s episode of Girls, hosting a performance by the rapper Lil Freckles prior to Marnie and her new romantic interest Desi taking the stage. You can listen to “Dancin’ On The D,” the song she performed, above.

Lil Freckles is the alter-ego of a 26-year-old production assistant on the show named Emma. She records rap recaps of each episode on her Instagram and will have a mixtape out soon.

She’ll also be involved with some of the writing on Season 4.

Most of us who’ve spent regrettable amounts of time researching things that don’t matter (i.e. do not affect our income, work ethic, etc.) know that Return of the Jedi could have been so much more. What with the change of Wookies to ewoks, the noticeable regression of George Lucas’ film student ideology, the rape of Yub Nub from the “final” cut(s), the addition of scenes that are just offensive and extraterrestrially racist, and replacing what Luke knows to be his actual father with his father during the punk rock days (punk rock in the Star Wars universe takes on a different meaning than ours - it includes killing children for them). The following is a list that I couldn’t help but notice while I was desperately trying to justify my existence one Sunday afternoon. Don’t get me wrong, I still watch it and would love to own several ewoks, but, well, god dammit, ya know?

1) We get to see how shitty of a protocol droid C3PO really is - he has literally nothing going for him for about 4 and 1/2 hours at this point and finally he’s given a real chance to prove himself and he does nothing but embarrass our faith in him.

2) Lucas’ shame of the Han Solo character is more than just apparent, but kind of insulting to us. The puppeteers must not have been able to get the facial features right to do a complete substitution.

3) Vader has clearly been reprimanded for killing so many generals in Empire. He really takes a calmer approach in this one. It’s ok though, Lucas will wait 16 years before having Vader suffer his whole life from Low T.

4) Not enough of the space battle. The best part of the movie is the grandiose space battle where the whole rebel fleet faces, on kind of a whim and poor plan, the brass testicles of the imperial fleet. Somebody MUST have told someone else that Lando about his CV.

5) Luke doesn’t go through a strong denial based on sexual attraction when he’s told Leia is his sister. Realistically, Luke’s life is falling into place, he’s Jedi confident, he no longer has to worry about his right hand falling asleep if he sleeps on it wrong, his lightsaber is green now instead of, excuse the term, pussy blue - and now he’s going to a forest moon with a woman who he made out with and has had a crush on for several years (forest moons are the best places to get a squeezer). Now he’s told by a foggy old man that they’re brother and sister - Luke doesn’t even care to pretend that Obi-wan and all the other dead Jedi totally could see them make out.

6) More should be said of Mon Mothma’s emotional trauma and quiet desperation. What? So we’re just supposed to ignore that she just looks like that all the time? She’s so sad…

7) By aging 15 years in only 6, Carrie Fischer has learned time travel and is using it for evil. Nobody’s voice and face change that much in 3 years without heavy drug use, sex, and over indulgence of fame or time travel used for evil.

8) The unsettling lack of concern for the death of many rebels. Han, Luke, and Leia sure didn’t fly to Endor alone - but their attitudes would make you feel differently.

9) There is a surprising lack of voice recognition technology on space ships. I think at the very least they should have a recording of what Han sounds like somewhere within the archives.

10) The supposed Emperor’s best troops on Endor - or the B team of outdoorsmen.

11) Jabba doesn’t have a “black thing”, but he totally should.

12) After C3PO and Luke ruin a perfectly good feast for the ewoks by rescuing themselves from being eaten, along with Han and Chewbacca, what do the ewoks eat? Do they just go back to accepting nuts and grains? No wonder they’re so easy to push around.

13) Burps are apparently funnier than plot holes and new CGI are devastating.

14) War in the Star Wars universe is a strict 9-5 and never takes place after dark.
