The New Spell

So here we are folks, a little short story about a young apprentice witch trying to learn a new potion spell.  I'm thinking about changing Saerah out this new girl, Rachel.  Technically, Saerah was created by a friend of mine and I've been wondering if that's why I've been having a hard time with writing her...since she isn't really my creation.  Oh well, we shall see!  Any way, enjoy the new story!

DCNU: Thoughts on Women in Comics

So apparently a lot of people are complaining about the way women are portrayed in the "New 52" comics from DC.  Specifically, over at The Mary Sue, Think Progress, and two over at Comics Alliance.  Also, a rather nicely done comic concerning the specific change in Starfire's character over at Shortpacked!

Now, one could make the argument that women simply need to calm down and just enjoy these things for what they are, comic books.  I would not be in that camp.  Things like this kind of annoy me cause it sends out a lot of different messages.  Now, I'm a dude.  The guy who writes Shortpacked, David Willis, is also a dude.  I can't speak to his reasons for disliking these changes, but I can speak to mine.  I'll warn you that some of the pictures might be considered NSFW, so heads up.
