Jim Crocker of Modern Myths on Female Fandom
'Credit Where It's Due!'
Published: 11/29/2012 02:41am
Jim Crocker of Modern Myths, Inc. in Northampton, Massachusetts praises Steve Bennett's recent column on female cosplayers as being questioned as "real" fans (see "Confessions of a Comic Book Guy--Bad Attitude = Bad Business").
Just a nod for, IMO, Steve Bennet's most cogent, useful, and on-point column in his entire stint at ICv2. We're two decades past needing to get over this foolishness about girls in our club, and he spoke about it clearly, and in a voice that's been there and understands the impulse to close ranks, but has gotten over it to accept the way the hobby has changed, for the better. Well done.
