Heidi MacDonald on Dave Sim. A must read…
Money quote for me: (bolding is all Heidi)
Is Dave getting a free pass or has be been damned for all times by the Feminist/Atheist cabal? I have to admit, sometimes I’m surprised when I see people asking Sim to write intros to their books, or he’s invited to things like the opening of a comics exhibit at the Norman Rockwell museum. Or when some indie comics show trumpets his appearance. Or when I see Neil Gaiman or Jeff Smith “teaming up” with Dave for a worthy charity. It’s not that I expect him to get a proper Amish Shunning. It’s just that there’s a lot more blowback in the “real world” when you associate yourself with individuals with “strong opinions”.
