1. Why are so many of you commenting on the article or the man's work and haven't read either?
2. Why is there a perception that females in comics are generally written bad? Most characters in comics are males and they are almost always written horribly; from their names all the way through into their dialogue.
It is attributable to bad writing and nothing else. Neither male nor female characters are immune from it. Bad writing affects it all. Also, sex and sexuality in comics is as risque as it is on television. Grow up. Calling something "masturbatory for 15 year old boys" is quite ignorant. You can say the same to the Victoria's Secret catalog or most programming after 8 pm on any given night. I don't devote my reading time to devouring overtly sexual comics or ridiculously violent ones. However, sex and violence have their places in the medium. It depends on the tale being told and the material used to tell it.
This article reminded me of the ones I have read concerning shows like ROME, Spartacus or Breaking Bad. The shows have their content because they are made for mature adults, not juveniles. It is ridiculous that unless a comic says "For Adults Only 18+" it is assumed to be for all ages. Top Cow comics have never and will hopefully never be all ages. Comics like Witchblade are not meant for children or really even young teens. They are written with adult themed content and should be treated as such.
