There's occasional commentary on my friends list about how comic books are pretty severely misogynist. This is true in many ways, and of course varies by comic and writer. Characteristically, Randy Milholland, the Something Positive guy, has weighed in on this topic, and characteristically he is likely to offend all sides in doing so.
It's... striking. Go him.
Also: I am way behind on LJ and may or may not fully catch up. Feel free to point out things of importance that I might otherwise miss.
