A recent guest laughed at "Bitches, Yuppies and Rednecks from Mars" which is entirely laughable, yes, and downright awful, but the artwork is solid work (I hesitate to use "good" because I don't like the style) and some of the tiny bits of plot are decent concepts, additionally there's a good variety of sexual proclivities, and frankly, it's really not much worse than any other comic. OK, so average comic. Batman was an ordinary man who did amazing things. So, no comparing the Batman legacy to this BYRfM, nor Wonderwoman, who, in her own way did a lot. But really, how is lesbians colonizing Mars really less weird than being able to shoot spider silk just because you got bit by a radioactive spider? Really. I know a bunch of lesbians who if you said, "hey, look, lesbian colonies on Mars, no dudes, you wanna go?" they'd be like HELL YEA. Personally, I've never met a scientist who works with spiders or seen anyone for whom radiation has been a super-powering experience and the spider bite I got is scary but my super-weird was already there before it. Is the Dr. Who plot about the waters of Mars really more believable than dykes?
I don't think so, but then, I wouldn't be writing this if I did.*
I don't really have a point to this.

*Just to be clear, I also enjoyed Spider Man and Dr. Who, and I do actively like and seek Dr. Who.
