A woman in comics critiqued a comic book cover. She suffered threats of physical violence and rape for her troubles. What part of that seems like a pattern we should keep ignoring?
And now, all the film, game, and comic news that’s fit to print. Gremlins might be getting the reboot treatment, Cuarón's Gravity gets a release date, Dead Island: Riptide offends with crass Collector's Edition, fan campaign gets JRPG localized, the X-Men become an all-female team and the internet loses its shit, and DC Comics cancels a boatload of titles.
Two new covers for upcoming issues of Brian Wood's series DMZ were thrown online via the writer's Tumblr. The series, which is set in the near future during a second US civil war, is nearing its end with issue #70. These covers for #65 and #66 paint two very different pictures.
