Meanwhile, in Trump’s America: if your lead character is a black woman, comic book shops won’t carry it. But, you know, that’s just “economic anxiety.”
Anime and Manga
Have a live-action Jojo. Good luck keeping sane.
You want a One Piece film in North American theaters? You got it!
Who the hell asked for a live-action Winnie the Pooh? Disney, stop with the live-action adaptations: you are inadvertently suggesting there was a flaw to the animated versions that is simply that they are animated.
This Week in Fascism
Oh, you think I care that people booed a bigot like Mike Pence? You think I condemn people for merely booing, versus someone who has ran a campaign against LGBT persons for years? Yeah, no–boo Mike Pence wherever he walks. I hope his children boo him as he walks to and from the bathroom. Boo Mike Pence–then donate, organize, call, and vote, because if you did not vote Clinton, then it’s your fault we got Pence and his dimwitted running mate.
Oh, and if you are excited for what Trump does for art? No. Excitement is not the right word. Art represents its moment of production, and of course the presence of this bigot and fascist is going to influence current creators’ works. Therefore, I am more concerned how our art will represent the physical violence and loss of civil rights under this bigot, then being excited about such art. Art can be about learning from the past, not celebrating awfulness. So instead of asking, “What will this Neo-Nazi do for art?” ask yourself “How do we recognize dystopia?”
