Mark Millar has been rewriting the same story over and over for years and after reading what he said I undersatand why he's shit and has the imagination of a concussed lobotomised zombie that's just had it's brains blow out with an ATR. I've never read a Mcfarland comic and now never will but unless their remarks have been really taken out of context they are vile odious swines who appear to want to piss off any one with half a braincell and a mere smudgen of humanity.
This is why we need people like you and me doing what we do here on DA for the love it to break through into the comic buisness if only to show there are people who think the emotional aspect of storytelling is more important than constantly trying to shock for shockings sake.
Wow, as a woman and a fan of Mark Millar's work (always hated McFarlane, he's a mega-douche) I am saddened and ashamed of him. I'm ashamed I've spent money on his work no matter how good it is. I guess both of these a-holes are so self involved they've never picked up an X-Men comic to see an example of diversity or gender equality. Then again Marvel has always seemed much more balanced than other companies, it's my own opinion of course.
I'm honestly just really angry about this and disappointed in them and anyone that harolds them and people like them.
"On behalf of the men who love and respect women everywhere; I say "FUCK YOU" to Mark "Kickass" Millar and Todd "Spawn" McFarland!"
It's really scary that people don't even acknowledge when they are being sexist . Honestly, I can't believe in 2013 there are still people with such backward viewpoints. It's especially frustrating because I enjoyed the movie Kickass so to hear that one of the creators of it is a sexist asshole really pisses me off. Anyways, it's always good to find someone else who agrees that this is unfair.
Do you read the Escher girls blog? ----->eschergirls.tumblr.com/ because it deals with these kinds of issues as does ami's personal blog ----->ami-angelwings.tumblr.com/ if you aren't reading them I highly recommend you do because they make some awesome points on there and can be quite humorous as well .
