So Tony Harris is an artist whom I usually had a lot of time for.  He did a lot to make Starman what it was, and I tend to think that his art in general is fantastic.  Unfortunately, it turns out that artistic skill and the ability to be a decent human being don’t always go together. Today, he posted this on his Facebook page.

“Sword of Sorcery” and Derailing

septiembre 26, 2012 at 6:53 am (Comic Books, Commentary, sexism) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

(Content Note: Rape and Rape Culture, Privilege, Sexism)

So in my last post I argued–perhaps not all that coherently–that, given the prevalence of rape in our society, it was a good thing for there to be comic books that spoke honestly on the subject, and expressed my hopes that, as long as it was bringing up the issue at all,  Sword of Sorcery would be that comic.

Upon thinking some more about the issue and reading some additional commentary–some of it right on, some of it not–I feel I should clarify that my thinking on this a bit.  I fear that, in saying what I did, I may have inadvertently also said, in effect, that the need for that conversation was more important than women’s need and/or desire for comic books that didn’t deal with the issue.

Sorry about that.
