Since when I look around at the groups of friends around me, they more or less bunch off according to race. (Whites, asians, jocks (I know this is not a race), mainly). It just seems easier to make everyone white, why is that a bad thing? (2/2)
These will tell you why it is a problem that white people are the default and why representation is important:
Reasons why I have never and will never turn on anon, #5,409.
Anyhow these are all great resources on race and representation, and why it’s very, very important (if it wasn’t already obvious from the anon ask).
My main deal with Image is that they are in a unique position now where Image central—-(Image is split into other branches too—Shadowline, top cow, Skybound etc.) under Stephenson they are putting out books that have a lot of eyes on them. and they treat me amazingly well and let me do essentially whatever I want to. Sooo —my end of Image is as good as I make it. They are the ideal place for me to do the work that I want to do & pay my rent off of it.
and yeah, I’ve been pretty public about the work there that I don’t like— mark Millar books with all these amazing artists working on his sub-par scripts or that clown Straczynski who some how manages to put out some of the ugliest looking books at a company with the best production people I’ve ever worked with.
I did work for Oni in the past and they’re in a less blessed position than Image as far as sales - I do love 6th gun
First 2nd is frustrating to me in that I feel like their model takes these amazing creators off of shelves for years. So you get a guy like Paul Pope spending 6 years on battling boy—and then when it comes out it’s in a tiny paper back.(I think Pope comics work best GIANT) I feel like that works best if you’re Craig Thompson and your book gets the level of impressive production work on it that his Habibi got.
Maybe that’s not a deal but I really enjoy going to the comic store and seeing new comics to read every month.
That said I did really enjoy Walker bean, Delilah Dirk, Boxers and Saints, Zita Spacegirl and a lot of other books they’ve got.
I’m reallly looking forward to my pal Farel’s The Wrenchies.—that they’re putting out.
and there’s lots of other publishers that I love, Antarctic press, radio Comix, Peow, Decadence,nobrow, Self Made Hero & Blank Slate Books & Koyama
I’m really not trying to shit on any publishers,(aside from the usual) I just like talking about how I see things. I’m glad DH does what they do, I think Fanta is needed and vertigo (as much as I’m cool devaluing their place in comics) is better healthy and here than not.
Hahahahaha that Rob Liefeld pic killed me.
