Comic's aren't really accessible to anyone, not just women.

Once again, I still am not seeing a good argument for why women can't enjoy comics or why it had to cater towards them. What if marvel and DC came out tomorrow and said that they are just for guys, and women could read them if they want. Why is it bad to be exclusionary?

Higgins, for a person that supposedly likes good things, it bums me out that you haven't watched Avatar yet. Probably as much as Kenzo is bummed that you haven't played Suikoden II.

Don't worry, son. He's just a man from the internet from before you were born.

ed: real talk, Maddox got famous for satirically making fun of children's "art" in this ancient post:

THIS WAS WELL OVER A FULL DECADE AGO. I AM LITERALLY THE OLDEST PERSON IN THE WORLD.

Sad that there's no outrage over the Lady Thor Dickhammer variant this week. Fucking Tumblr. I wanted to use this:

He does it because he believes in giving credit to people that actually create things instead of nebulously crediting everything to The Internet. From one of his recent posts;

It even made the front page of Reddit:

And the Reddit link cites the source as... Reddit of course. Because apparently nobody creates anything anymore, and it all belongs to Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Instagram, right assholes? Why bother doing journalism when you can wave a magic wand and say "INTERNET DID IT!"

For over a decade he has created almost everything on his website, except for pictures that he uses as reference. I don't know if he does it anymore, but he used to draw a lot of really elaborate MS Paint art with his posts. It's "crude" art but mostly used for comedic effect. Maddox is old school man. He's like me where he's not into this new social media bullshit.

Haha yeah, that cover is amazing.

I don't think there was much controversy over it, though, cause the only people that would care about this shit is girls with dicks anyway.

And then he made a YouTube channel. Fuckin' sell out.

The dickhammer is fantastic but there's nothing remotely offensive you could possibly read into it. It's basically the opposite of that awful Spiderwoman cover.

No, I'm saying the only people who care about random controversies-du-jour are trans tumblr users, and since they'd love a Thor with a giant hammer cock, no complaints about the cover.

I'm about as big a Marvel booster as Bryce and I have to say Fear Itself and everything tied into is terrible. Except Hulk vs Dracula. Read Hulk vs Dracula because it's silly and ignore the rest of Fear Itself. What a waste of an amazing premise.
