September 28, 2011 1:55 pm As a male, I can't comment on whether or not these stories objectify women, or rather empower them. I really believe you don't know what makes a woman feel empowered unless you are a women, and vice versa. If you're a man and you're making claims that certain things are empowering women or not, you end up with feet in your mouth. It's like a male being very pro life or pro choice, at the end of the day you're ultimately the one who has to go through the process. Mentioning that this has been a thing thats been around for the past 20 years in comics kind of just sounds like DC isn't really moving forward on all fronts. If you remember when Roger Ebert reviewed Blue Velvet, he claimed David Lynch exploited and degraded Isabella Rossalini, he couldn't have been more wrong, because she would say differently. Its not his place to make those statements, and as a trio of male comic readers, I don't think you know whats empowering or not for a woman. Leave that for female readers. My opinion anyway. That being said, the stories weren't good. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
September 7, 2011 5:36 pm There is an album by Power Electronics/Industrial group Deathpile that is essentially a concept record told from the perspective of the GR Killer, simply titled "G.R". A great listen if you can stand harsh noise. Can't wait to read this.
