Follow up: Colleen Doran on her panel-mate:
PS: I’m sorry, I can’t help myself…”constantly blowing us away with the most outrageous and provocative titles?”
Yes, I used to do Power Pack and Louise [Simonson] created it.
Utterly over the top. Left ‘em panting in the ailes.
Good lord, this panel is like some kind of sociological experiment.
Bring rubber gloves, and a clipboard.
MR imaging scans will be conducted before and after the panel to observe changes in test subjects, but my hypothesis is the major anomaly will be in the male subject’s primary visual cortex.
Dark Horse editor Rachel Edidin also has some tart comments:
Want to know how the ladies creating comics do it? THEY WORK THEIR ASSES OFF—just like the guys. The biggest difference is that we have to deal with this shit.
Doran now reports a potential scheduling conflict:
In other news, I am scheduled to be on a panel at 6 PM that day, then this panel, then an event at the Empire State Building at 8 PM. So, something’s got to give, and it looks like this panel may be the sacrifice to the Gods of decorum.
