Only one ship featuring a black woman and no ships featuring Asian women? And isn’t Attack on Titan anime? Wouldn’t that make them Japanese and not white? Either way, Fandom staying beige and basic basic, I see.

Kendis Thompson of Seattle thinks she’s as normal as the next computer geek, and up till now, she’s been right. But her world is about to turn on its ear, for she is the daughter of a Seelie Court mage and her mortal husband–and her faerie blood is awakening. Suddenly the city she’s known all her life is transforming before her eyes. Trolls haunt the bike trails. Fairies and goblins run loose in the streets. An old woman who is not what she seems and a young wanderer running from his past stand ready to defend Seattle–and Kendis–from magical assault. She will need those allies, for the power rising within her is calling her fey kin to the Emerald City to find her. And kill her.
Faerie Blood, the first book of my urban fantasy series The Free Court of Seattle, is on sale for the entire month of July! 99 cents wherever ebooks are sold, and I’m waiving all shipping charges for orders of print copies! Please come visit this post on my site, and if you’re so inclined, spread the word with reblogs!
The season premiere is HERE! “WitchBitch”
YESSSSSSSSSS I’VE WAITED SO LONG.
Why don’t we talk about Kevin Grevioux as much as we should?
Here we have an actor, stuntman, producer, and creator. Mr. Grevioux created the Underworld series of films for Columbia Pictures and starred as Raze. He also created a pair of comic houses, Astonishing Studios and DarkStorm Studios and has written a number of titles including New Warriors for Marvel. While at Marvel, he also created Adam Brashear, the Blue Marvel, who is now a core member of the Mighty Avengers. He also voiced the sinister Black Beetle on Young Justice: Invasion. A theatrical film adaptation of another one of his comic creations, I, Frankenstein, is set to be released later this month.
Definitely someone who should be on your creative radar.

"Dwayne McDuffie on the realities of the Black writer in the comic book industry"
Shoegaze sent me this video. McDuffie is spot on about what it’s like as a minority writer. What strikes me is how funny, graceful, and downright genial McDuffie is about the whole thing. If year after year I were questioned about some “super sekrit omg minority conspiracy” during my career, I would be so bitter and angry.
From McDuffie’s Wiki page:
In the early 1990s, wanting to express a multicultural sensibility that he felt was missing in comic books, McDuffie and three partners founded Milestone Media, which The Plain Dealer of Cleveland, Ohio, described in 2000 as “the industry’s most successful minority-owned-and operated comic company.” McDuffie explained:
If you do a black character or a female character or an Asian character, then they aren’t just that character. They represent that race or that sex, and they can’t be interesting because everything they do has to represent an entire block of people. You know, Superman isn’t all white people and neither is Lex Luthor. We knew we had to present a range of characters within each ethnic group, which means that we couldn’t do just one book. We had to do a series of books and we had to present a view of the world that’s wider than the world we’ve seen before.
RIP McDuffie. You are definitely missed.
