For the second part of my series on the Success for Women in Indie Comics, I interview GrayHaven Editor Glenn Matchett.
MS: Do you see differences in the ways that women are written in Indie books compared with the more mainstream comics from high-profile publishers?
It depends on the writer. At the moment I think Scott Snyder is writing great female characters in Batman and the Wake. One is as corporate as corporate characters get, and one is his own thing. Quality writing is quality writing no matter if it’s Buffy Summers, Jessica Jones in Alias or Michonne in Walking Dead. There are a few misfires out there of course, but I think it’s true for both indie and mainstream comics, I don’t think one or the other makes the difference, it depends who is telling the story.
