DC Comics Had a Bad Week

DC Comics is having a bad week.

They got a lot of press over some writers leaving over a story issue.  Obviously there is more this story than we, the audience will ever know, but it still leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

In this weeks MadChat, we spend some time discussing there talent search using a very interesting image of Harley Quinn, who is without a doubt one of my favorite characters in the DC universe.  You have to draw a naked, suicidal Harley.  We cover it in the episode, but I continue to think about.

I understand that people are upset about this.  It’s a weird story, no doubt.  But I feel like maybe it is a little bit of a non-story at the end of the day.  You have to believe that artists who are making a living drawing these characters have been made to create some pretty wild and strange images.  Even graphic and disturbing.  This strikes me as another case of the ever-reaching communication bug creating a bigger story.  That said, if you disagree, I want to know.

Take a listen to this week’s MadChat and let us know what you think.
