The real issue I have with books like this, that are part of the push towards diversity, is that there's a subset of comics fans that will praise it and love it no matter what, because they want to be seen as tolerant. It's like Pretty Deadly, people were cosplaying that book and raving about it before it even came out. There's probably a 'Fuck Yeah Kamala Khan' Tumblr right now, and we don't even know if the book will be good or not, she hasn't appeared yet.
People are more concerned about how diverse a book will be (and how good and superior it will make them look by reading it) than whether it's actually good.
Maybe people are just excited for something different? Tired of the same old crap? I think this is a good idea for a comic, and I'll check it out. I would be interested in reading about muslim characters.
I just think that article was a little on the douchey, white knight side with all the "as a white dude
, I apologize for the actions of those other white dudes
Do you want a medal for not having a problem with this comic?
