I would rather have nothing but well written books about hetrosexual white men between the age of 18-32 then poorly written, poorly constructed books about minorities. Heck i say kill all the books ABOUT diversity & lets keep the ones that incidentally possess diversity without it being the be all and end all of the product. In other words, give me WONDER woman any day, but take and burn every issue of wonder WOMAN. Its a shame that i've yet to see a WONDER woman comic book... There sure seem to be a lot of wonder WOMAN books out there though.
I've always thought that this focus on diversity over quality story telling is whats really holding back the diversity. After all as much as people talk a good game, no rational person purchase a book for diversity. They purchase a book for interesting story.

And appropriate diversity can be an element of a good comic. I think it's more noticeable by its absence than anything else. I don't think it's a bad thing to consciously include people who used to be always excluded, or defined by stereotypes as "the other," in current comics. To some degree, it might be trying to overcome a long-standing blind spot, so while it should not be heavy-handed, it is perhaps timely and welcome.
Were you actually at the event, if so, what did Gail say about Cassandra Cain. Can we get anything more specific??
