07/31/2006 Entry: "Not enough comics companies commissioning stories from women"

News flash: Not enough comics companies commissioning stories from women! In other news, water persists in being wet!

"8). C - When Sean McKeever (the Eisner Award winning) got the assignment to do a Mary Jane book, Gail Simone joked that the first thing he did was look up the word ”girl” in the dictionary. When Carol first became Ms. Marvel, she was a feminist hero written by men. In 2006, the editor, writer and artist on the book are still all men. Do people ever give you a hard time about that?

"AS - No, not really. The fact is, I’d like to work with more women creators. But they’re difficult to find. And at the end of the day, I have to go with the writer I think is best, instead of the writer that politically makes the most sense. Folks can say all they want about how male-oriented super hero comics are, and they’re probably right. I’m all for more women breaking in, but I think I’ve only gotten three women in the last year even trying to break in. One artist named Alicia Rodriguez who’s quite good, a colorist, and one writer."
So, ladies, if you’re out there, and you want to write and draw comics—give us a call!, Andy Schmidt interview, July 31, 2006

Why doesn't Marvel give one of us a call? I'm sure Reggie Hudlin didn't pitch his run on "Black Panther" to them. It's no secret Marvel commissions work from established authors... if they're male.

And while I'm asking questions, why doesn't Marvel quit jerking us around?

I'm still waiting for Andy Schmidt to give my husband a call again. Robin really helped him out a few months back and, since then, nothing.

If Andy does call, I'll make sure to get on the phone and announce my availability. :)

Well, there ya go, Elayne!

Give him my number (for writing work) while you're at it.
