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.”
Today on the show, we’re going to chat about Iron Fist season 2, Spider-man, the new Captain Marvel photos, and speculate on what’s next. Let’s turn the first page!

What comic speaks to you differently now than when you first read it? What did it say then? What does it say now?
ACC-tion heroes, this week we have an interview with Sean Lewis, a playwright, actor, essayist, and comic book writer. Sean's breadth of experiences AND body of work could have led to a three part series. For now, though, we focus on Coytoes, the book he wrote with Caitlin Yarksy (who has an amazing instagram feed.)

Hello and Welcome to ALL COMICS CONSIDERED, the comic book podcast with a Heart! Today Hannah (totally not a Xander) and Tim (Maybe totally a Giles) host a great show!
Hello ACC-tion heroes! We have five--yes five!--stories of good and evil to talk about this morning! Each one of our storytellers will be getting a pocket constitution! Thanks to everyone who shared a story OR shared a post.
The story of good defeating evil that I love the most is Angela Queen of Hel. Hella is oppressing angels but the journey is more personal than that. It's a story of love, love between a trans women of color and her beloved lady getting over the evils of Hel itself. It's powerful on so many levels when Angela manages to become the queen of Hel and gets to be free with her love again. Sera and Angela's love combating their own evils, their own fears, and very real threats makes it just such an amazing tale.
My choice is actually the opening pages of the Saga series, where Marko and Alana overcome the prejudice that has sustained the seemingly eternal war between their people, fall in love and bring new life into the universe. In doing so, they commit a cardinal sin in the eyes of their people but (in a delightfully gritty and 'real' birth sequence) show the triumph of love over learned animosity. As the Pakeha/European half of an inter-racial couple (raising two kids who have to tick a number of 'ethnicity' boxes on census forms) this felt pretty damn real. Given our current political climate, we need more Markos and Alanas out there who are willing to reject the lessons of hatred and embrace. Just embrace. So yeah, that's my choice. Not a triumph as such (given its place at the start of the narrative) but an act of defiance and rebellion that is all the more real because it marries political/personal so brilliantly.
Lots to choose from, but I was surprisingly touched by the recent issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (the latest #1, I think?--pretty sure you’re right, Fred!), where SG meets Brain Drain, realizes something is wrong, and it unexpectedly turns into a tale about growing beyond our past selves and becoming better people over time.
Also, there was this Alan Moore story, I'm not sure where it was originally printed but it tells the story of a Green Lantern (Katma Tui) who had to try to recruit someone to the Lantern Corps whose species has no concept of light.
Hello ACC-tion Heroes! For this week's episode, we have a special guest: Megan from Dorkadia!
Our supreme sound engineer, Steve, had to work overtime to get this episode to work due to some technical difficulties.
Hi ACC-tion heroes! Put down that egg nog and turn down "This Christmas," it's time for a really quick Holiday Special. And this one has nothing to do with comics, but it would make a pretty good web comic.
Marty went on a trip last week because of a letter he wrote. It's a pretty cool story, bruh.
Make sure you head over to All Comics Considered to check out some of the pictures from that trip to the East Wing!
