PCP’s Weekly Dose: Diversity in Comics

8 Aug


No doubt, you’ve heard the kerfuffle that transpired last week when Marvel announced that the helm of Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe has been taken up by a half Black and half Hispanic character: Miles Morales. Needless to say, while the majority of people responded with a reasonable “maybe it’ll be good, maybe it won’t” reaction. Unfortunately, there was also a vocal minority that cited this “blackwashing” as “reverse-racism” and more affirmative action. We’ve decided to gather around and put our feelings out on the matter of diversity and tokenism. Please give us your thoughts and be sure to check back Wednesday for 040: South Park for a slightly less topical episode.
