Sidekicked Issue #2 – Are you Joss-ing me?

Love’m or hate’m, Joss Whedon has had a huge impact on comic book pop culture. From Buffy to Avengers, he has set some pretty high creative bars. His characters are often complex and his storylines have seeds planted that can take years to blossom. But are complex stories always the best? Joss is also very vocal of his opinions, sometimes at the cost of others. He is known to feel that some of his work gets shortchanged, but not everything the man makes is as good as he thinks it is. Now that he has deleted his Twitter account, some people believe Joss is pulling back because of some backlash. Although Joss has always been a leader in the comic book community, this does not mean he always has the best things to say. Vincent, David, and Guest Host Emery, talk about ‘The Good, The Bad, and the Joss”.

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

He has now been drafted by the Uncanny Pome Magazine to unleash his thoughts and views. Along with his partner, David, the two of them analyze the comic book industry for a new generation of fans.

The First Trans Person I Ever Saw Was in a Tabloid

Within my own lifetime, I have seen the evolution of how the trans body is seen in the public eye. Trans folks walk through the world as educators, storytellers, and activists, not necessarily by choice but rather by design. Even so, we usually play the game of “my eyes are up here” while people scrutinize our bodies like tiny frogs on dissection tables.
