Comic Books and Misogyny

Paul O'Brian (of the X-Axis) takes on a recent article in the English Press on Sin City in his latest article at the Ninth Art. The article on Sin City suggests that Comic Books are guilty of a certain amount of misogyny. Well worth checking out, particularly for the way he trashes the article while admitting a grain of truth to the thesis.

He also points to Gail Simone's Women in Refrigerators website which deals with this problem in more depth. Well worth checking out, and it's particularly interesting to look down the responses by Comic Book Professionals.
