The Fake Geek Girl

In light of my being too damn sick to do anything this week, I present to you a little something else…

Fake Geek Girl, DC?

Fake Geek Girl

Well, we all know it’s bullshit, but frankly, it’s some insensitive shit to see this in the back of comics that men and women pay good money for. One fan in particular, who made a post over at The Mary Sue found this in the back of her issue of Batman.

But, see, other people know it’s bullshit too, and one person in particular who brought us forth just WHY we should fear fake geek girls.

It’s a bit white bread, but you know what? The satire is dead on, and I can’t help but love a well-placed shot at Aquaman.

Because seriously, he sucks.

Namor is so much better.

 

Brain Food – Episode 10

Hello everyone, and welcome to the tenth episode of Brain Food, wherein I review Bitter Girl, by former DC editor and full time cartoonist and illustrator, Joan Hilty!

I hope that everyone enjoys it and follows me along as I continue to make these videos. I owe a lot to the people who watched my videos and offered their input as well as books for me to read. So long as I can find and read books, then I am going to make these videos and boost the signal on authours and books that should be read.

It’s been well-documented that one of the biggest issues that comics is facing is that it’s not attracting new readers. It’s also been well-documented how comics, and for that matter fandom in general, isn’t particularly inclusive and welcoming of members of marginalized groups: POCs, LGBTQs, women, etc.

Not surprisingly I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive.
