Look, more hate mail!
Another review during Comic-Con, from FearNet.com's Bagged and Boarded, where the reviewer doesn't appreciate the fact that Night of the 80's Undead has the amp set to 11... among other things. Like calling it sexist and racist. LOL
1) They claim it's MILDLY racist. Which at first threw us for a loop... but then I remembered, the "Asian twins" are intentionally written in a stereotypical fashion, in keeping with the myriad of 80's movies that depicted them in that fashion. And having done that, I made sure to try and offset that with some cool (if completely stereotypical) character beats for them down the line. Being sure that the characters don't just exist to serve stereotypical means, they ya know serve the story and have genuine character arcs that to me transcend the way in which they go about that.
2) They claim it's VERY sexist, because, you know, gosh, comic books shouldn't exaggerate human anatomy... sorry, don't do photo realistic comics. And, to their point, the main character does not have "unnaturally large breasts"... they're naturally large, and I don't mean that tongue-in-cheek, I mean to say, that perhaps while their size is not common, or average, it's certainly well within the range of nature.
So yeah, if you can't have sexy girls in comic books, lock me up.
And if you don't like them in your comic books, then, well, you don't want my comic books.
My female characters are always the lead, always kick ass, and always look good doing it.
I know it's not universally acceptable, but to each their own.
I don't write bad girl comic books, and I'm not going to ugly up my characters, or have them drawn in ways to pander to a wider audience, no apologies there.
I normally don't feel the need to comment on reviews, but this one brought up some good points I felt were worth addressing.
