Anonymous said: Dear, Gail what are you options on the repersentation of african american's in comics? just asking because i feel DC has been dropping the ball.
I feel they are extremely under-represented in comics in general.
With the new52, DC made a sincere effort to have some books with black leads and in prominent positions. But those books failed to click with the audience.
I will say, I have spoken with Bob Harras and Dan DiDio both and they take this seriously and want to fix it. I know of a couple books with POC leads that are in the pipeline as we speak.
If by ‘dropping the ball’ you mean something else entirely, I may be missing the message. Are you talking about portrayals, or exposure?
