An Open Letter To DC Comics
Hi! I’m not going to start this by saying that I’m a loyal customer and you owe me anything because in fact I am not a customer of yours, loyal or otherwise, and you thus owe me nothing.

kdhart: THISSSSS. miniar: This has been a great year for male writers, with women shunted aside for major prizes and all-new hand-wringing about why it is so. Because, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but male writers get taken more seriously.
