Fake Geek Guys: A Message to Men About Sexual Harassment

fake geek guys sexual harassment superman lois action comics golden age

“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”

That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?

Honest question, dudes.

That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.

So what can we do about it?

Marvel Stunt Show Attendees Will Receive Free Comic Explaining Why Iron Man Is Riding a Dirt Bike

Marvel Universe LIVE! Prequel comic

If you're heading to the Marvel Universe LIVE! show when it kicks off an arena tour this summer but don't want to be lost in all the movie sequel action and dirtbike stunts, I have some good news! There's going to be a comic book tie-in to the show that will serve as a prequel, giving the modern theatergoer a chance to catch up on what's going on with the Cosmic Cube, the Avengers and Spider-Man before they hit the stage. Of course, while this is meant to answer questions, it also raises a few of its own. Namely:

1) Wait, there's going to be a live Marvel arena show?

2) Wait, it's going to involve dirtbike stunts?!

New ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Screenshots Deliver More Oracle, Commissioner Gordon, And Batmobile Launching

Batman: Arkham Knight screenshot

As Batman: Arkham Knight, the next entry in the popular video game franchise about Batman beating the criminally insane into submission in asylums of increasingly improbable sizes and complexity, draws nearer, we're starting to get to the point where we're getting a steady stream of information about the game. Today, with the release of a new set of screenshots, we got some of the most interesting news of all.

According to the latest screens, after appearances as a voice in a headset in the past three games, Barbara Gordon will finally be appearing as Oracle. That's big news for fans fans, but to be honest, that stuff about the Batmobile shooting you out of the roof like James Bond's ejector seat will probably have a bigger impact on gameplay.

‘Robin Rises: Omega’ Could Mean The Return Of Damian Wayne

Robin Omega 1 main

If the preview images for DC Comics' new Robin Rises: Omega one-shot, which hits stores July 16, indicate what it looks like they're indicating, then Damian Wayne's comic-book death will have lasted just a bit less than 17 months.

The writer of the book, Peter J. Tomasi, wouldn't tell Hero Complex exactly which Robin is returning, but since almost every other Robin seems to be alive, well, and doing other things (with the exception of Stephanie Brown, who's in sort of a gray area), Damian seems to be the prime suspect, especially considering that Ra's al Ghul plays a major role in the one-shot.

Scott Snyder On ‘Batman: Zero Year – Dark City’: The ComicsAlliance Interview, Part Two

Batman: Zero Year by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia

In the pages of Batman, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia are retelling the origin of Batman for the modern DC Universe with "Zero Year." Told over the course of a year, "Zero Year" is divided in to three arcs, each representing a facet of Gotham City and Batman's growth into a superhero, and it's been wild right from the start. For each arc, ComicsAlliance is going in-depth with Snyder to find out more about how the story came together and what these elements mean, and with "Dark City" finishing just a few weeks ago, it's time once again for our conversation to resume.

In the second part of our interview (you can read the first part here), Snyder and I discuss Batman's relationship with Jim Gordon, the Riddler's role as Batman's first major foe, and just why he has those mutton chops.

Hire This Woman: Artist Alison Sampson

Untitled-1

In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

Architect and artist Alison Sampson is relatively new to the world of comics, but has done work for both IDW Publishing and Image. In addition to her Image one-shot Genesis with writer Nathan Edmondson (on sale this week), Sampson is also working on the comic Winnebago Graveyard with writer Steve Niles for Black Mask.
