We've come a long way as a race. Abraham Lincoln was instrumental in destroying slavery for the betterment of the country. The 19th amendment gave women the right to vote. And we just observed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, celebrating equal rights for all citizens. So we're making great strides. So why should these strides be limited to reality? Comics have also been somewhat on the forefront of political issues, and this is most prevalent regarding women in comics. The Guardian has a phenomenal article talking about women in comics, and its a great read. The article talks to Gail Simone a lot, who is one of the best female writers out there, just about how times are changin'. The article says that shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lost and Heroes have been instrumental in encouraging more women to follow comics and want to work in the comic book industry. So check it out if you have the time. Good perspective on the changing face of comics. The Guardian: Brilliantly Drawn Girls
