thecapncummings asked: On the whole internet troll subject what do you think is the best avenue to combat this whole thing? I'm not a fan of complaining about it maybe just being positive and promoting good behavior? I've been taught being a good example is always best. Thoughts?

Just be the best version of yourself, use playground rules, you don’t fight with bullies, you don’t get in the mud,  

as a good friend of mine reminds me every time someone in this business takes a swing at me: you don’t punch a pile of shit because all that will happen is you will get shit on you

 I just wish that the larger higher profile forums would take a much harder stance on what they allow on their message boards. I am all for free speech but hate speech, rape speech, and general negativity on your forums is creating an unfriendly and frankly inaccurate atmosphere.

 as I have said on this tumbler I have met women who have admitted to me that they have to pose as men on some higher profile message boards so they can have a decent conversation about comics without being Internet pawwed.

 I have told the people who own these boards and they have done nothing about it because they’d rather have the traffic even though I think the traffic would be higher if people were allowed to have a conversation without being bullied or harassed.

all I can do is not cooperate with those sites anymore.  and I do not.  for which it has been explained to me I am perceived as a pain in the ass. oh well.

brenoranyere asked: when you visualize a scene how do you know where to put the camera?

You put it where it most clearly and dramatically tells the story. clarity is  where most people stumble.

 be clear.

isaacgoodhart asked: Regarding the conversation about hostility towards women in comics -- It appears to me that things are changing for the better, no? In the past few years, more and more amazingly talented female creators have been coming in to the industry (Sara Pichelli, Gail Simone, Becky Cloonan, Kelly Sue, G Willow, Ming Doyle…), changing the status quo of comics and thus the opinions of fans. Sure, theres some resistance from the dummies, but aren't things VASTLY improving??

I get a lot of crap for being Mr. positive from people who are having a hard time seeing the cup half-full but I completely agree with you.

 I think things are vastly better than they were and that only makes the shitheads stand out even more.  things are not perfect, all of society’s problems are not solved, but I do think the good guys are winning.

 the only thing that is really bothering me about all of this is that there are some people who are letting the idiots get the best of them and are turning away from the medium that I love so much and has so much to offer all of us.

 I hope they reconsider.
