Why I Can’t Talk to My Girlfriend About Comics

I was thinking of doing this as a series, but this may be self-contained with the following images.

The first is linked from Bleeding Cool.


Like a boy killing ants with one hand swat, genres, sensibilities and at least one political sensibility are smacked down in an ad partially supported by DC.

The next image is supported by a large portion of the remaining comics buying crowd.


I had to post this after viewing the Zenescope site and reading the rationalization by Mark L. Miller on the decision to make the male character in The Jungle Book a male. I’m sure it had nothing to do with capitalizing on the cheesecake cover craze.

That’s it. Series premiere and wrap up, I guess.
