    February 23, 2012 5:53 pm @MisterShaw: I'd LOVE to see that! I'm not even kidding!

    February 23, 2012 3:51 pm You know what one of the best, most empowering things about feminism is? It teaches that a woman has the right to wear whatever they damn well please - no matter if it's a short skirt or baggy sweatpants. Feminism also teaches that it's a pretty scummy thing to judge someone based on how revealing or not-revealing their outfit is.
    February 23, 2012 2:16 pm Things will never change only if we stop raising questions, and if we stop raising awareness of the issue. It's important to keep these topics at the forefront of comic book news, otherwise we fall into stagnation (although it is arguable that the industry already has) and apathy will take over of. In short, be the change you want to see!

    July 6, 2011 5:53 pm i want to give DC my money as soon as possible
    July 6, 2011 4:07 pm off topic: seeing Superman read a Superman comic is pretty amazing.
    July 6, 2011 3:37 pm i, like many comic fans, am one of those "i was here first" types.
    but if i were to stick with that mentality, i never would have introuced the girl i love to comics.
    and she would never have fallen head-over-heels for DC superhero books, and indie slice-of-life comics. and, in turn, she never would have introduced me, a years-long comic nerd, to awesome books that i never would have read on my own, and awesome books i've never even heard of!

    also worth noting: if we all stuck to the "i was here first, you have no right" mentality, comic fans with children in their lives would not be able to share that with them.

    i think we need to get over ourselves.
    everyone loves Star Wars - hardcore geek fans and "normal" people alike. everyone loves superhero films, everyone loves video games... why are comic books any different? why SHOULD they be any different?

    As a thin male, it offends me that this article implies short, chubby ladies can't cosplay whatever the want.
    I disagree with this.  Everyone, regardless of size, should dress however the damn well please.
    I mean, after all, isn't it stated in the article that "The main point of cosplay is to have FUN"?
