Since the New 52, the only two DC-published comics that have held my attention have been Batwoman and Wonder Woman.
I don’t understand what DC has been doing re: the female segment of their readership. They’ve pushed multiple women characters out of EXISTENCE, pushed multiple women out of working for the COMPANY, and now they’re running advertisements that purposely degrade comic fans as “not being enough of a fan” and thus “fake nerds” — with a heavy emphasis on the FEMALE NERD.
Why? Why why why why? The marketshare for people still buying and reading comics has been dropping for years. Everyone knows this. The whole point of The New 52 was to give people a jumping on point without all the years and years of history - so new readers wouldn’t be intimidated. SO WHY WOULD YOU LIMIT YOUR AUDIENCE APPEAL AT THE OUTSET?
Christ, DC. Get a CLUE.
Like Cass Cain? Got $1.99? Go Buy Batgirl #1 on Comixology
There’s a campaign today where people are being encourage to buy Batgirl #1 with Cass Cain to try and get DC’s attention.
So go drop some money if you’d like to send DC a message. You can also Tweet and use the hashtag #casscaincampaign.
I just bought mine. Now I have a digital copy, a floppy and the trade.
You could also send snail mail letters to DC or leave messages on Facebook.
And here’s a lovely sketch of Cass by Jen Zee
nerdoutandproud asked: Being that you aren’t directly involved with the character who is coming out, would you be willing to talk about who you think he or she may be?
I would happily speculate, but I HONESTLY don’t have a clue.
For a lot of reasons, the big publishers have to be a lot more careful about spoilers, and so a lot of cards are played more closely to the chest. The people writing this character may not know what I have planned for Batgirl, either. The level of communication is different now.
While it’s nicer for everyone to know everything, the truth is, that model doesn’t work well in the internet age, sadly.
I honest have no idea.
Suddenly I’m thinking of a Batgirl-Batwoman ship and I’m having a lot of trouble finding a problem with that.
