Episode 8: Evergreen Podcast About Comic Books And Diversity

According to David Gabriel, Marvel’s VP of Sales, comic book sales are down because “people didn’t want any more diversity.” This isn’t theĀ first time a Marvel executive — let alone executives from DC and smaller outlets — has ever blatantly avoided their company’s own problems by trying to blame low sales numbers on diversity. So Dan and Andrew decided to turn this week’s episode into an evergreen podcast about diversity and comics. (They also chatĀ about Joss Whedon directing Batgirl, the Justice League trailer, and just how awesome FX’s Legion was.)
