Designated Sidelinks

Saturday, April 12th, 2008
I remembered that I own a del.icio.us account, and started collecting links for an infrequent DS round up
Comics related Links Wrap Up
  • Lesbian Gamers: Morgan Gray & Racial Stereotyping in Games
    Coverage by Lesbian Gamers of an interesting interview highlighting the structural similarities in how companies justify excluding groups from gaming content.  I’ve heard a bunch of those arguments explaining why comic books characters have to look the same
  • Occasional Superheroine:
    Female Superhero Comic Book Readers Desire “Good Storylines”. Yes, yes they do – amazing conceptual breakthrough not yet grasped by the major labels – story lines could be the revolution in comics that Liefield was for pouches.

Not quite so comics connected, but still in the broader feminism movement category, (for which this blog is aiming to belong)

  • Shakesville: It’s Right There in the Name
    We’re supposed to apologize and admit that they’re right, suppress our real feelings to keep the peace. We’re supposed to show them just how far we can bend. Oddly enough, though, that’s not how things work on a feminist blog

Finally, props to to InternetDuctTape.com and the  Delicious Links Builder for turning this sort of list blogging after from pain to glory in numerous really complex YahooPipes! steps and one straightforward page.

Goddamn Batman! I’m actually excited about getting to the comic store and handing over cash for DC products.   Roll on the shopping spree tomorrow!

Dear DC

Thank you for listening.

Dear Friends of Girl-Wonder.

Thank you for speaking.

Dear Opponents of Girl -Wonder

Thanks for letting me quote Christina Aguilera at you.

Dear Mary

Thank you.  You thought of it, you believed in it, and look what it’s done so far.

Designated Survey 01: What are your priorities for art, character and costume in comics?

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

There’s a lot of assumptions in comic book fandom about what’s important, what other people like, who reads what and what priorities people put on different factors.

Me? I like a little bit of numbers with my speculation. So with that in mind, I’d like to introduce to you all…

Designated Survey

This debut issue of the Designated Survey is asking you to put some preferences down on what you want in a comic book, what’s important in comic book characters, and what makes a superhero outfit more than just a fancy dress costume?

Plus a couple of questions of what really matters when it comes to parting with money for four colour stories.

Links for spreading the survey around the place after the cut.
