I haven’t been in a comic book store in a couple of weeks so this cover slipped by me. And maybe I missed the outrage about it.
But we’re all seriously cool with calling a pre-teen girl (even one who has killed a lot of people) a “bitch”? Because I’m not cool with that.
I have no problem with the word “bitch” — even referring to women as such (and I’ve used it). I also don’t have a problem with it being on a comic book cover. I get that this is Mark Millar’s whole thing. I just don’t know why no one in this entire process stopped to think “Hey, wait a minute — this is a young girl we’re talking about here …”
I tolerate and/or shrug off a lot of stuff when it comes to comics. But I guess even I have my limits.
