Reblog if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by Dan Didio.

It’s not my story to recount, but a friend of mine was once visiting a friend of ours who worked at DC at the time

Going to have to disagree.

In regards to my “Reblog if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by Dan Didio” post.

DC Comics contact information - tell them how you feel about Dan Didio’s recent behavior

So, wait a second.

I agree with hiring for quality, rather than any other factor.

This is an audio clip of Dan Didio at SDCC.

Why even go to a public place like SDCC and then ask for fan questions if you had some serious ego-bruising topics you wanted to avoid at all costs?

Oh, DiDio, as much as I love to see a man like you squirm, I wish the satisfaction were coming from something else.

If you didn’t know, DC Comics is going from 12% female creators to -50% (female to male gender reassignment) with their new 52-themed relaunch in September.


hey dan didio hire me i’m good at giving people advice and i could give you some

This is a good idea, but the point has been made elsewhere that complaining to DC directly, at whatever level, is unlikely to have much effect (though one should certainly speak up anyway so that they can’t claim ignorance).

DC Comics makes statement on female characters, creators

Ha! Forgive me being cynical, but I’m feeling this all like ‘cover our lady-hatin’ butts with slick and appeasing press release so them uppity womens shuts the fuck up’. 

This is nice, but pretty much the bare minimum, if that.

Look, I think it’s great DC acknowledged the women creators thing
