Dave Sim has a new comic book coming out in April. It’s called Glamourpuss. The official Web site has images like this:
The text describes it as a parody of the fashion industry plus an homage to the classic “soap opera” comics strips of the 50s, like Mary Perkins On Stage.
Comicdom’s continuing enabling of Dave Sim astounds me, not necessarily because his beliefs are crazy and evil but because those crazy and evil beliefs so directly inform all his work. Actually, it’s more than that: His work is about his crazy and evil beliefs. I’m not sure why otherwise bright people would “look forward” to a comic about women by a man who espouses any number of noxious, vile, misogynist, almost paranoid-schizophrenic beliefs about women. I wouldn’t look forward to listening to an opera about the Jews by Wagner, either.
