Frank Cho absolutely nailing it in Bleeding Cool interview

Frank Cho absolutely nailed it in a recent interview with Bleeding Cool on the entire social justice movement. These internet thought police that believes they have the right to decide what’s acceptable and what’s not acceptable in comic books, are forcing their point of view on anyone and everyone. No one on this fucken planet get’s to decide for others what art they are allowed to like or dislike. Art doesn’t have to play nice with everybody, in many ways art has to provoke. And to quote Joyce Carol Oates: “Art should provoke, disturb, arouse our emotions, expand our sympathies in directions we may not anticipate and may not even wish.”


Frank Cho pretty much hitting the nail on the head.

You don’t like Frank Cho’s work and think its sexist? By all means air your opinion jump up on your little soap box and preach. But that won’t stop me from thinking that you have the intelligence and moral compass of a brick. But don’t you ever go telling me that I have to see it like you or that I am wrong and part of the problem. Artists have the whole history of art on their side: Michelangelo’s David, the Venus de Milo, Goya’s Nude Maja, Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus and pretty much every other classical nude/erotic paintings and sculpture in history. Comic books are for everyone, and people shouldn’t mob and harass creators and companies for printing images they view as being sexist or wrong.
