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.
