  1. She's going to be pretty disappointed. Well, at least until Mark Millar's run.

  7. Tone of voice is everything here, I think. Is this irony, maybe?

  9. Surprise,surprise, another ubiquitous Anglo Saxon making a boisterous comment in the comic store. Why is everyone white here? Is this store in Alaska?

  10. So ... you're saying non-white folks should be portrayed as idiots too?

  11. Isn't a fairly significant majority of the comic-reading population Caucasian? I've never heard any person of color in my life admit to reading them.

    You're an ignorant idiot.

  13. I know many people of color who read comic books, and I've seen lots in Spanish. Maybe White people just don't like *talking* about people of colour who read comics.

    Caveat--I'm white, wasn't offended, and just trying to lighten things up.

  14. I think if you wander in my bookstore any given day of the week, there are a half dozen or so "people of color" reading comic books in various chairs around the store.

  15. I usually get here early so I had to go see what all the fuss is about the comments in that earlier comic.

    Seriously? It's like...flies fighting to the death over a turd. Oh well, now for my contribution to the currently-brewing slapfight/weepwank:

  16. Does it really matter what colour skin the majority of the comic-book reading populace may or may not be? Is something that is essentially genetic asthestics really all that important in relation to comic books? Skin colour isn't even a reliable indication of heritage.

    Personally, I'm more interested in what these guys have to say than what colour their skin is.

  17. 5:56 and 8:11:

    You know, it was an honest question. For the record, I know a lot more people of colour than I do Caucasians. I live in a city that is over 60% black, and I live in one of the blackest parts of that city. But every single person I have ever heard discuss comics has been white.

    But since I do not read comics and don't know anyone who does beyond what you could call 'in passing,' I thought maybe I was missing something, and so I asked.

    But please, feel free to continue your ignorant insults.

  18. Now, if you want to say my I'm making incorrect generalizations about white people and comic book readers, you may be onto something. I don't understand y'all at all!

    The biggest self-professed comic book "head" I know is black. So that's likely just your experience. Unless I'm the outlier and don't know it.

  20. Internet, you are so weird. There's nothing you can turn into a heated debate.

  21. Lord. This place was fun for all of five minutes.

  22. **'Caveat--I'm white, wasn't offended, and just trying to lighten things up. '**

    unfortunate choice of metaphor much?

    Anyway how can you tell what color they are? they're cartoons ferkrissakes!

    Oh and don't bother going into anything about clothes/tattoos/jewellry choices, it'll just make it worse.

    funny how none of them are gay either.

    just sayin

    bye

  23. The question I was asking "why is everyone white here" is in regards to the people portrayed in the comics. Looking back over "ALL" the cartoon characters posted on this site, there are no minorities that I saw, with the exception of 2 questionable ones. Hence the line, "Is this store in Alaska"? Just a banal comment (attempt @ humor) really with no hint of racism meant. The cartoons and comments here are quite hilarious, I was just curious if any other nationalities where in the store making the same inane comments/questions.

    Live Long and Prosper Internets.

  24. How exactly do you know that all of the people in these comics are white? There is no gray scale in any of these. Would he color their face completely black? Switch to white lines on a black background? Would either of those be BETTER?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe the only ones who are being really stupid are the white people? :D

    That's good, right? RIGHT?!

    Honestly, this is the silliest comment thread ever. :P

  26. @Anon 8:38 - Your mistake was asking an honest question on the internet. Worse, asking an honest question in a place where there are a lot of people commenting anonymously. If there's even the tiniest chance that someone might find something you say offensive, they will.

  27. Are those mickey mouse ears on her t-shirt pentagram?

  28. @Ridureyu I think that it's the logo for a band called HIM. Bam Margera popularized it by plastering it everywhere, he even had it tattooed on himself.
