Grab her hand

Gail Simone is my hero, tbh
Gail Simone is quite literally one of the best things to EVER happen to comics
If there were more writers like her in the industry, I would be buying FAR more titles than I currently am…
I wish there were more brave women with POWER like her!! Sometimes it feels like she’s battling the patriarchy all alone! People are so mean. :(
I’m glad you all celebrate a woman that has come so far, and certainly deserves to be celebrated, but it’s disheartening that you seem to be ignoring the dozens of other women currently in comics that have been fighting and continue to fight the patriarchy every day. Gail Simone should not be discounted, but let’s not forgot all the other women that blazed a trail for her, or even the women that stand beside her today. Let’s not forget Louise Simonson or Colleen Doran or Phoebe Gloeckner or Amanda Conner or Karen Berger or Dame Darcy or Melinda Gebbie or Joyce Brabner or Alison Bechdel or Lynda Barry or Marjane Satrapi or Aline Kominsky or the countless others. Gail Simone is not alone.
Also, let’s not confuse the Big Two with entire comics industry, shall we?
Remember when Spongebob was feasting on his own torn off arms.
When Mr. Krabs broke off his leg and still went back to bed
When spongebob’s leg bones tore through his entire body and he was still chill.
When Patrick’s entire head exploded and he was still capable of communication.
Or when Spongebob exploded and his flesh rained from the sky and everyone was calm about it.
Spongebob was fucking metal.
This is pussy time compared to what we went through with Ren & Stimpy.
