If you’re in the US, welcome back from the annual time of eating-too-much-and-napping! If you’re outside the US, welcome back to Monday! It’s Afternoon Snack!
So many of us grew up watching Toonami and the Super Seiyan power-ups of Dragon Ball Z, but black men in particular have a connection to the show that’s endured decades.
On the Post-Weinstein reckoning, and how we can examine our own complicity in the system that degrades us.
In 2016, Poison Ivy got her own mini-series, and the struggle of female creators at DC against abusers like Eddie Berganza (who was unexpectedly editing the book) came to inform much of the story. Amy Chu, the writer on the series, had her run cancelled, despite exceeding sales expectations. Shitty dudes ruin everything.
