September 1, 2013 6:38 pm Just crazy how things work and everything is connected. I just recently picked up my last monthly issue of any comic book and decided to move to reading all trades exclusively. I started reading monthly issues with Grant Morrison's start on Batman with issue #655. I basically stopped buying monthly issues after his final issue on Batman with Batman Incorporated #13. Now this news. Just crazy. Very sad news guys, I loved coming on here on a daily basis to see all the new news. And I really enjoyed the pull list.

August 12, 2013 2:48 pm Your friends have every right to feel uncomfortable. I'm sure there are some men who feel uncomfortable by how men are portrayed too. The advice I would give(since I solve the world's problems) the women AND men who feel uncomfortable is don't buy the product if it makes you feel that way. The one way for your voice to be heard is by hurting their sales. If someone IS uncomfortable and they keep buying the product then they must not mind it THAT much. If something makes me uncomfortable I don't do it. If I stick my hand into a fire and I get burnt then I don't do it again. If I still kept sticking my hand into the fire over and over I'm pretty sure that is the definition of insanity. To answer your question: "If this Wednesday came around, and all of the female costumes had been amended to be more practical and show less flesh, would you be in uproar?" No, I wouldn't care. "If no, then stop fighting what needs to happen." I'm not fighting anything. I'm just saying there are 2 sides of the coin, women AND men are portrayed with sexy stereotypical forms in comic books. Go ahead an lead the charge to change comic books. Just lead it for everyone, not just the women. Oh, and good luck with that and let me know how it turns out.
August 12, 2013 2:33 pm "What are your thoughts on women dressing as their heroes?" Good point. If women are so against how women are portrayed in comics, why do they dress up in half naked costumes portraying them at comic book conventions?
August 12, 2013 2:26 pm So because comicBOOKchris said: "Both the extremely chiseled male bodies and the hyper-sexual female bodies stem from male fantasies. They both represent what men want… they want the chiseled body and the super sexy girl.” that makes it true? So...to summarize: Men like to look at hot men because they want to look like them, and they like to look at hot women because that is the kind of women they want. Women don't like to look at hot men because they just want a guy with sexy eyes and kissable lips(the cartoon link you posted), and they don't like to look at hot women because they don't want to look like that. No your are right, I'm still not getting that because it makes no sense. And Kate and Clint ARE splitting time in Hawkeye now, she WAS just a supporting character, who was still in almost every issue. But now they are rotating full issues. I think it's every other issue. Kate is on the West Coast and Clint is on the East Coast.
August 12, 2013 2:26 pm To quote comicBOOKchris, who said this an entire hour ago and you’re both still not getting it “Both the extremely chiseled male bodies and the hyper-sexual female bodies stem from male fantasies. They both represent what men want… they want the chiseled body and the super sexy girl.” And no, Clint and Kate aren’t sharing the Hawkeye book. Clint is the main character, and Kate is an occasional supporting character. Equal time is not split between the two, because it’s Clint’s book.

August 12, 2013 2:02 pm The cover of Nightwing #1 with his legs spread wide open for the whole world to see DIDN'T make me feel uncomfortable. That's my point. I know I will never look as good as him. I'm fine with it. And I don't care if he is making a sexy pose. If women or anybody find him sexy and pick up the title for that reason then great! That means more people are buying it and it will be less likely to be cancelled. And I enjoy the title so I don't want it to be cancelled. I really don't think a woman is going to look down on me because I don't look like Nightwing. And if they do then they have their own issues and I wouldn't want to be associated with them anyway.
