Dear Yelling Internet People,
Now this interview has been getting a lot of play on various comic sites and web logs particularly the comments about female readership. I know this may make me look bad but I am having a hard time figuring out what exactly is getting people up in arms. From what I gather people see his comments as him dismissing female fans. I can see how some of his broad-reaching comments could be insulting, but it seems more to me as comments made by a person who has been heavily involved with the industry for what 4 decades now and about the trends he has seen. I would actually like to hear some of your opinions on this, particularly Tracie.
Also for the OCW is just limited to superhero related characters since I think it would be fun to see everyone's take on obscure newspaper strip and animated shorts characters. I have an interest in animated shorts in particular so it would be interesting to see some of those characters get more attention. In that light I put forward my favorite Looney Tune, Cool Cat, the beat talking tiger who's chief enemy was a hunter riding around in elephant shaped tank.
