Oh, jeez Val. This is what you get up to when I'm asleep?
I'm not sure I can fix this thread, but...
What my dear, demented sister of spirit means is that here is a book that celebrated female empowerment.
Except it didn't. It celebrated a caricature of female empowerment that achieved little, other than convincing an already ignorant quasi-manchild majority demographic that women need to stay away from both their hobby and the pages of their books (unless drawn by Frank Cho).
It punted us all the way back to the 70s and though that was a defining era for women's lib, it was a crappy time to be a woman trying to make her way in the world.
While I do think it would be great to have a thread where the women of the board who love comics can mingle, chat, laugh and bicker together largely free from some of the more cringeworthy voices that are raised when the topic of women in comics is discussed, I don't think this is that thread.
Mind, I do support the notion that guys participating in such a thread ought to declare that they have a mangina, or at the very least, a shenis.
