I'm a writer and artist, working mainly in comic books, and living in the South East of England (although I'm technically half Scottish and half English).
I'm the managing editor of Orang Utan Comics, group editor of AAM/Markosia, writer of Alpha Gods, Hypergirl and Hero: 9-5, and also do freelance inking and lettering work for the likes of AAM/Markosia, Slave Labour, Top Shelf, Image, Marvel/Panini and I letter the official Doctor Who graphic novels for BBC Books.
This racist shit with some comic book fans reminds me of what the late, great Dwayne McDuffie was talking about in this video. He is right on the money with his analysis. I know, I saw this play out in the early 90s as a hardcore comic nerd with the reactions of some white comic fans towards story arcs of black characters like Spawn, Luke Cage, Bishop and Forge to name a few. It has not changed one bit almost 20 years later. How insecure do you have to be if make believe, fantasy black people bother you?
