Here’s the Wikipedia article on DC Comics’ New 52. Notice how there’s nothing there about the widespread criticism of DC’s lack of female creators and sexist portrayals of female characters? Fix it. Good monkeys.
(I’d do it myself, but I’m too tired and full of pizza.)

Reblogging myself.

The key is getting folks who really just want to see, say, Catwoman bang Batman and nothing else to hear those critiques and to find a way to engage with them constructively, which is really, profoundly difficult. But I’d rather live in a world where people who don’t want to hear the works they like criticized have to work to shut them out, rather than leaving them to relax into the blissful sounds of silence.

Wonder Waistline, by Joe Quinones.
Joe Quinones created this fantastic piece for a fan last week, regarding Wonder Woman’s costume modifications for the DCnU and perhaps what Diana thought of the wardrobe changes. Nuts to that, indeed.
Joe’s comments:

“Here’s a commission I did of Wonder Woman this past week at my New  England Comics signing. The nice young lady who commissioned it had  asked for a piece where Diana was making some sort of comment on how  glad she was to not be wearing pants - relative to the recent controversy of the character’s redesign for DC’s relaunched ‘New 52’ series of comics).”


Yeah, I have to admit I like the bare legs version a lot better.

Meet the White Rabbit:

Created and drawn by David “I Don’t Know How Boobs Work" Finch, Playboy Bunny White Rabbit is one of the new villains DC is introducing into the rebooted DCU. I bet all those feminists who were worried that the lack of female creators at DC would lead to (even more) objectified, oversexualized and otherwise negative portrayals of women in comics feel pretty silly right about now.

On behalf of Jim Lee and Dan Didio, apology accepted.

Oh, and DC’s bringing back the Body Doubles. For those unfamiliar with the characters, the Body Doubles are a pair of generic ‘sexy’ bounty hunters (think the Page sisters without the badassitude) that appeared regularly in the “underrated" ’90s comic Resurrection Man. Incidentally, I tried to read through RM last week in anticipation of the title’s relaunch but stopped out of boredom. Besides the main character’s admittedly interesting gimmick of coming back to life with a new superpower everytime he is killed, it’s a pretty standard story of the amnesiac on the run from a shadowy organization while trying to piece together his past. From the ten or so issues I read, I found out at least one of the Body Doubles is an ex-stripper with a history of sexual abuse (shocking, I know).

Because the idea of this costume existing actually isn’t that ridiculous these days.
