    “Diversity & Comics” growing followers and fans, from everything I’ve seen, aren’t traditional comics readers, but simply Breitbarters, Gamergaters and Trump fans coming for the anti-SJW rants and staying for the comics discussion. Key to noticing this is to look into the profiles of his hundreds of commenters on YouTube and especially Twitter. They’re mostly not talking about comics elsewhere; they’re talking about the evils of SJWs, uppity minorities and women. The keyword “SJW” is how people are finding his content.

    To presume this crowd represent a significant percentage of active comics readership, just because they say they do, is to give this person, who was previously best known for leading the crusade against the Marvel milkshake crew, exactly the intimidation tool that he wants.

      I forget, who is the president?

      Sorry but even if what you say were true about his audience, you would still be wrong in the conclusion that those people are somehow an inconsequential minority.

        AH, you mean that so-called President who was appointed by the Electoral College after getting fewer votes than his opponent?

    I never even heard of Diversity and Comics until I read about it here. Well, of course I had to see what you were talking about.
