Superstar comics cover artist J. Scott Campbell isn't the type of man to let complaints about his sexualized drawing of a fifteen year old girl spoil his otherwise perfect day. The superstar artist, known for his wide range of Zenescope variant cover themes such as "sexy Red Riding Hood," "sexy Alice in Wonderland," and "naked and sexy Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland soaping each other up in the bathtub while sexy fairies watch in the background," recently came under fire on Comics Twitter for his variant cover featuring Marvel's Riri Williams, a fifteen-year-old black super-genius who is taking over the role of Iron Man as part of Marvel's "do the absolute bare minimum to appear to support diversity but quick get a dude Iron Man book out at the same time" initiative. The comic will be written by "The Great One" Brian Bendis, who is half black because his wife is black, according to Axel Alonso logic.
The cover was criticized for sexualizing the teenage character, which is counterproductive toward the whole point of inclusivity that said Marvel is constantly asking for acclaim for minimally supporting in the first place. Campbell, however, doesn't plan to let that sort of thing get to him.
"Ha! Nope, nope," Campbell Tweeted. "Sitting this SJW whine-fest out. Not taking their bait this round ;)"
Campbell further revealed that listening to the response to his cover, trying to understand the valid criticism being put forth, perhaps browsing through the brand new #TeensThatLookLikeTeens hashtag, and then using that data to inform and improve his future work as part of a process of continuous evolution, sounded like "a real bummer." Speaking of people who haven't evolved since 1992, Erik Larsen also got in on the action, tweeting "So, apparently, body shaming is completely acceptable as long as the person being shamed is fit and attractive."
At press time, both men planned to remain blissfully unconcerned about criticism, or in Larsen's case criticism of his flippant response to the criticism, and combative toward any point of view that makes them uncomfortable about their own privilege.
