Amazing what conclusions a free thinking and level headed person can reach.

Nice. Support is always welcome. (Okay -- wish she'd stopped one
paragraph sooner. Giving any credence to the bashers is giving them
too much.)

Will admit, tho -- drawing a blank. Who is this?

I discover about her in "Lying in the Gutters" when she wrote a poignant story about herself " Good-Bye to comics " a year ago or so and followed her blog since then. She worked at DC for some times.

Her name is Valerie D'Orazio. She's a former editor for Acclaim and DC. She is also current national president of Friends Of Lulu.

Smart attractive young woman.

I live in a vaccuum, as I guess I find this Forum to be one of the most honest, straight-forward and intelligent places to interact online. I didn't know we were all viewed as baboons with our asses hanging out. Not that I much care, but are we collectively a topic of discussion among the "cognoscenti" of the Internet?

That's rich.

When dissing me became shorthand for I AM SOOOO KEWL, it was only a
short hop to dissing those who don't dis me for the same effect.

Eww, Lying in the Gutters.

Rich Johnston is the Joan Rivers of comic books.

Feel free to quote me on that.

Whoa whoa whoa,

Scroll down in her articles a bit guys, she posts a panel from an issue of
Mighty Avengers where Doctor Doom is calling Ms. Marvel a fat whore?!!?

So misogyny is back full swing in comics again eh?

YUCK.

The most offensive part of nonsense like this to me is that people like
Quesada have this ability to convince the fanboys that speaking in such a
manner in a superhero story is some kind of "high art".

Not just misogyny. It's totally out of character for Doom. He might kill her or rant about her (or anybody else's)  inferior intellect, but he'd never stoop to such a base insult.

The only "Byrne" comments I hear at my LCS are the classic "the old stuff was better" (as I buy a new Byrne book).  I usually just respond with, "no, art is art - the older stuff was just different".

I don't know anyone who has actually met Mr Byrne, so I've now other stories.

That is a nice article, though.

That's an absolute "given" if I've ever heard one.

Going for the throat of women in comics gets my goat first.

I'm pretty used to the notion of Marvel characters acting like whatever the
current writers feel is necessary to get their bullshit points across. (Which
is why I don't read anything by them 'cept BND: Spider-Man these days.

I think Doom can be a misogynist. He is definitely a sociopath. But the dialog ... oh gods.

This reflects a pattern that I've noticed for the year or so: a dearth of Bad-Byrne moments.

Both off and on the JBF.

Good form!
