"The comics industry hasn’t changed that much. The economy’s changed, so the appetite for risk from publishers has hit rock bottom and begun to dig. Otherwise, mainstream comics are a buck more expensive and have two pages less content; there are still (riddle me this, Batman!) a majority of female editors but almost no women writers or artists on mainstream books. The writing of female, LGBTQ and minority characters is still kinda cringemaking as they’re still mainly penned by straight white guys…. but… but… now there’s Kickstarter. And now there’s digital self-publishing, without having to front up a crapload of money to pay a printer. "

This post was deleted for the following reason: I'm sorry but we really pretty much have a "no kickstarter" rule here. Feel free to either redo the post tomorrow without the kickstarter link or sign them up for a MeFi account and we can put the project on the MeFi pack of kickstarter. Thanks. -- jessamyn
