As we discussed yesterday, the Westboro Baptist Church showed up at Comic-Con because... well, it's still not clear, except that they love attention almost as much as they love being terrible. ComicsAlliance was there to capture the glorious counterprotest by comics fans who vastly outnumbered the members of the church, holding comics-themed counter-protest signsing and chanting "We love comics!"

ComicsAlliance Senior Writer Chris Sims found "Secret Six" writer Gail Simone on the scene, and spoke with the "Secret Six" writer -- an outspoken supporter of gay rights -- about the inspiring response from the comics community. Check out the video after the jump.
