Deep Thoughts from Joe Quesada

I read quite a few of Marvel’s comics, because in my opinion they’ve attracted some of the best writers of superhero fiction in the industry now and because they’ve some some pretty cool teams and heroes. That said, every time I read something Joe Quesada has said, it kinda makes me want to stop reading Marvel comics.

So, for instance, apparently Marvel has announced some “Divas” series about women in comics that looks for all the world like it’ll be Tarot-style “empowerment through gratuitous tits and ass and bondage scenes”. When actual women who actually care about comics criticised the promo materials for the book on those grounds, this is how Joe defended the series:

If you’re [a] Marvel reader and truly feel we’re sexist, then why are you reading our books? Now, perhaps you’re not a Marvel reader, then if that’s the case, I’m not quite sure what you’re criticizing if you don’t read our books?

Circular reasoning, in the true Mighty Marvel Manner!

Go eat a dick, Joe Quesada. You’re lucky that Matt Fraction and Pak & Van Lente work for you, or I’d drop your company’s shit in a heartbeat.

P.s.: Here’s a more detailed accounting of sexism in the comics industry and Joe Quesada’s defence of it.

P.p.s.: I got both of those links from brinstar’s Twitter, via antiheroine.

    “Empowerment through gratuitous tits and ass and bondage scenes”? If there’s another kind of empowerment, I’m not sure I want to know about it.

    Two words: Easter Sundae.

    Anyway, your quote reminded me that I had meant to link one of Chris Sims‘ Tarot reviews as an illustration of what I mean. I sometimes forget that not everyone follows his blog religiously, like I do, and therefore references I make to things that happen there go over some peoples’ heads. This is similar to how I constantly drop TVTropes references in casual conversation and expect people to know what I’m talking about.

    Right, so. With that, Chris Sims reviews Tarot #53: http://www.the-isb.com/?p=980

    EMPOWERING!

    Actually, this one is even more illustrative, by which I mean EMPOWERING: http://www.the-isb.com/?p=182

    I have actually added examples to TV Tropes.

    Yes.

    Any experiences I have as a lonely, antisocial outcast are now explained, forever.

  • http://tobascodagama.com Joshua

    Yeah.

    Me, too.

    I haven’t started an entire new trope yet, at least.

    DUDE. We should totally GET TOGETHER and INVENT A NEW TROPE.

    . . . or would that defeat the point of being antisocial on the Internet?
