Why Gail Simone Remains One Of My Fave Comics Writers.
What she says she's learned this year: "That the stereotypical idea that the audience is full of dateless pasty white guys living in mom's basement is a crock of poo. When I go to a con, I see all these creative readers, all colors and sizes and genders and orientations. I feel like some creators are afraid to admit that the audience is cooler than they are, so they perpetuate this myth. It's irritating. Don't speak down to the audience. Don't take them for granted. Do the best work you can every time, and they WILL be on your team, and that's worth a lot, in my book."
