Graphic Policy Radio Episode 6 – Schism, Fear Itself, DC and the “Woman Prolem”

Last night we had a pretty lively discussion in the latest episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the last 30 minutes especially.  Lots covered this week as we first focused on non-DC comics then pivoted to chat about some big issues when it comes to gender and comics.  On this week’s episode:

  • X-Men: Schism – our thoughts on Marvel’s “X” event that will shuffle everything around.
  • Fear Itself – We seem to like the main series, it’s the tie-ins that it really falls apart.
  • Spider-Island – Ken talks it up enough to get Elana and myself interested.
  • Indie books – A Game of Thrones, Star Trek and Green River Killer are all up for discussion.
  • DC new releases – the quality stood out this week and so did the bunk.
  • DC and “the woman problem” – it was never more apparent than this week that there’s some massive issues when it comes to the portrayal of women in the new DC universe.
