nolantjones asked: What's an issue or event that happened in comics that caused you to stop vehemently stop reading a book?
There’s been a few!
When Jim Lee started art on X-Men I dropped the book. I’ve never been a fan of his style, find it too stiff and cold.
Before Watchmen saw me drop DC Comics pretty much across the board. They’d made it easy with with Nu52, but it was more a case of their treatment of creators than the quality of the work. Not a week went by where I didn’t hear of something happening that was distasteful to me by them.
Daredevil - which I’d followed from Frank Miller’s start onwards - I dropped because of Fall From Grace. An awful story. I once dreamed of owning an entire run of DD, but that story was so bad, I lost my interest in the book.
My name is Rachel Edidin. I’m a freelance editor and writer, and an almost-eight-year veteran of the comics industry. I write and speak a lot about feminist issues, especially as related to harassment in the comics community and geek culture.
As a result, over the years, an ever-increasing number…
I can always be found by my shoes: red Docs, orange and pink Docs, high tops with stars on them.
I have been sexually assaulted, creeped on and verbally abused at numerous conventions. The last time it happened, in 2006, I actually tried talking to people who could’ve helped and got just as far as when I did nothing.
And that’s some bullshit. I’m reblogging because I’m with Rachel. You need help? I’m there. If I’m at a show, I’ll be on Twitter as theDivaLea. Send me an @. DM if you can.
