On the Question of Diversity in Comics
Here's one reason why DC might be losing the public relations war to Marvel. The way DC handles these questions at cons -- and by now, they should be expecting this questions and be better prepared -- shows a company on the defensive and not liking it. They might be selling comics with their big event story arcs and controversial reboots and big name character deaths and similar moves that seemed designed to gain attention rather than fit some actual character and story development, but they're alienating a lot of readers, myself included. Why can't the PTB at DC just get it and start respecting all readers and potential readers? You'd think it would be an easy thing.
