What’s wrong [with the comics industry]? … In the late ’70s, all the comic fans decided to get into the business. The problem is, it was a bunch of superhero fans. And an industry that had, up until that point, catered to almost every genre imaginable slowly and slowly was narrowed down and boiled down to a point where it was superhero comics, and that’s all there were. And then they all were writing these comics for each other — not for a mass market, not for young people. And then, as they aged, the content aged to suit their needs. And the idea is, when you’re an adult, you’re supposed to turn to other forms of entertainment, maybe, or appreciate comics for what they were. But that hasn’t been the case. So now we have superheroes that rape, we have heroin addicts, we have all this kind of bullshit that’s been heaped onto these characters that were meant to entertain kids and give them a little sense of right and wrong and adventure. I think it’s so sad. And you see what the strategy has done. … In 1972, Jimmy Olsen comics sold 200,000 copies a month, and it was canceled because that wasn’t enough to keep it going. These days, the best-selling book can barely scrape past 70,000 — never mind the worst-selling books. So let’s take a look at that strategy that’s been applied to this business. How’d it work out? Not too good. And the less people that read ‘em, the more expensive they have to be, and the more cryptic they have to be to cater to that tiny little market they’ve got. That’s what’s wrong.

Someone, ANYONE, please explain to me how Red Sonja’s boob that’s further away is larger than the one that’s close! PLEASE? I don’t understand. Is this how boobies work????

What I find really interesting is how this really illustrates the lack of diversity in women’s faces some comics artists have.  The cover is supposed to be a blend of Red Sonja and Sara Pezzini, but it’s clear the artist just drew a single female face and fiddled a little with the eye make up and hair. -_-

So, this is what the Doctor gets up to in this week’s Doctor Who Adventures magazine…

Um… I’m not sure what to say about this. Except WHAT.

I always thought 11 would either swim nude, or wear an old-timey bathing suit…Looks like my first guess was correct.
