The Book is on Lifesupport



I have to admit, I’m frustrated. Sales on the book continue to drop and there doesn’t seem to be much I can do to stop it. I’ve tried everything I can.

I got a big-name voice actor to do my trailer.

I got national news coverage.

I switched the book…

Drunk History and Armored Adventures at 7pm Central


I’ll be streaming Drunk History (you guys do not want to miss the Sassy As Fuck Spirit Medium) followed by episodes of Iron Man: Armored Adventures, picking up where we left off on Sunday. If you’re not familiar with Armored Adventures, you’ll pick it up quick, or you can read the primer here. It is legitimately as adorable as the animation is hideous. 

Stream opens for chatter and muzak at 6:30 central, or in about 90 minutes; stream starts at 7 central, about two hours from this post. Be there or be somewhere else!

Hooked On A Feeling - Blue Swede


Hey Gail, I'm curious about the relation between writers and visual artists for comics. I've read a few comics for which I love the storyline/writing, but the art is just really not doing it for me. (This happens to me with Wonder Woman a lot where I love the writing but the drawings are so over sexualized it's distracting.) Does the writer collaborate closely with the artist? Would/could a writer ever send an artist back to the drawing board? Just curious, thanks!




This probably sounds a little cliche but it’s true, no two teams work the same way, and it often has a lot to do with the editor, but not always.

Some editors want to be the conduit through which all information flows, so the artist and writer don’t speak directly. I hate this method a lot. It works sometimes, sometimes it’s a huge pain.

Most editors just want a great book and whatever works is how they handle it. I prefer to speak to the artist directly, so I can ask them what they like to draw and hate to draw, for one thing.

We don’t always get a say as writers in who the artist will be but in general we are at least consulted. There’s a lot of stuff done in a panic in comics because the deadlines are so tight, or the writer (me!) is running behind, or the artist is ill and needs a fill-in. 

If you have a bit of a name, you can ask for an artist, or you can make approval part of your agreement.

I generally put it right in the scripts if we are trying to avoid cheesecake, for example. Sometimes, you get it even if you ask NOT to have it. It happens.

Most artists want to do the best book they can, but some really love drawing their version of pretty women or ‘sexy’ shots or whatever. I don’t mind comics being a little unseemly, it just has to fit the scene and the character. Sometimes you WRITE a scene of Black Canary being badass, but you get BACK a bad scene of Black Canary’s ass.

I do feel that almost all publishers are being more aware of it, we are seeing some changes as we go.

I don’t object to cheesecake or sexy art or erotic art or whatever on its own merits at all. All of that is fine, and I don’t think people should feel bad for liking it. It’s just a question of fitting the scene and character, for me, anyway.  If Tumblr didn’t have sexy images, there wouldn’t be much Tumblr left!

Oh, and I like it to be inclusive, I like there to be stuff for lots of people to like. 


And I feel like you can still have sexy art where not just the women are sexy … or where the sexy women still have personality and it makes sense for the story and it’s not their only trait. And of course it helps if they have human spines.

Oh, yeah, absolutely.

A lot of times, when people discuss sexualized women in comics, it is done as if the image is in a vacuum, without context or history.

And that does make the argument a little unhelpful.

I have a high tolerance for cheesecake and beefcake in comics, if it can be made to fit…Huntress feels powerful when patrolling, that’s sexy in a way, Catman lounging is a different kind of sexy. So much of it is context and execution.

Anyway, I like comics to have all kinds of great stuff to look at. It’s not difficult to make a comic sexy without being creepy, it really isn’t.
