Hey there ACC-tion heroes! This week, we discuss something absolutely terrifying: Marvel's continuing inability to stand up to bullies, the alt-right, and general fuckery! This time, it's about the firing of Chuck Wending. We also do a review of DC Universe, and a pullbox on a lot of comics, including Dead Rabbit, Fantastic Four, and Old Man Logan!

This week, we release an amazing interview with comic creator, Ellis Bojar for his book Red Shift.

Ellis Bojar has an amazing comic origin story. Actually, he has two. He was active in comics way back in the 90s, but after a stint in IT, he was able to start working on smaller projects until his life changed. All of that is covered in the interview -- and I will not spoil this interview. 

Ellis is relatively active on twitter and you can buy his book, Red Shift, direct through Comixology. Just keep in mind, when I started this book I couldn't stop until I was done. So put away some time and go read this fantastic book!

If you like this interview, do us a solid, and talk about it on Twitter, Facebook, and with your friends, family, and frenemies!

Call to Action

 

Until next time, I leave you all with a call to action from JA Micheline

 “If you want to prevent the next Comicsgate, Brexit or Trump, here are some suggestions: rather than claiming you support marginalised people, rather than stating that you are against the principles of a nebulous enemy, demand better of your peers, demand better of yourself, and demand it in public. Amplify the voices of marginalised people discussing issues within your community. Intercede when a peer is responding in a hostile fashion towards those discussions. Set a standard for public and communal discourse. Do not tolerate the dismissal or disrespect of your marginalised colleagues. Do not tolerate the dismissal or disrespect of marginalised strangers. And in every environment, no matter how uncomfortable: hold the line.”

Hey there lovely ACC-tion heroes!

On this episode of ACC, Today we’re going to explode the the myth dismantling the idea that super/cape books are shallow. We find the feels from each age: Starting the Silver Age, travel through the Bronze Age, find some gems in the Pockets/Bandoleer/Dark age, and delve into some modern books.
 
Hannah brought this topic up due to an issue of Daredevil, wherein we learn (spoiler!) that Sister Maggie left Matt and Jack Murdock due to postpartum depression (part one and two.)
 
(Editor's note:  We also talked about this in our love letter episode, and I wrote up a blog piece for it.) What cape/super-hero books do you read that destroy this myth? You should totally let us know on Twitter, Facebook, or even email us!

Hey ACC-tion heroes! This week, Tim and Nick ask each other three insightful questions. Come for the questions, stay for the amazing answers!

 

Feature 1 - Three Questions

We each ask each other three questions.

Nick to Tim

  1. What insights would an Asian-American bring to the shield if, like Sam Wilson, they took the mantle of Captain America for a while?
  2. If you were a wrestling promoter in the DC Universe, who would you recruit?  No, you can’t cross-over Ben Grimm.
  3. We talk a lot about how heroes (and sometimes villains) have helped us understand ourselves.  Has a hero (or villain) ever helped you understand someone ELSE?

 

Tim to Nick

  1. Generally speaking, what limits you from reading comics? Not a critique, but a genuine curiosity.
  2. If you were tapped to write for a book, which one would you want to tackle?
  3. Comic book movies obviously pull source material from comics, but increasingly we are seeing movies affect the content of comics. (Example: Drax’s redesign), do you think this is a positive trend, negative, or neutral?
