Studios. Fans of John Constantine and Dr. Strange will love this new take on the magic-wielding hero who battles demons on the streets . . . and in his own mind.

On April 11th, 2014, journalist Janelle Asselin posted an article titled Anatomy of a Bad Cover: DC’s New Teen Titans #1 regarding her critique of the cover and DC’s marketing decisions that the cover represented. From that, she received various rape threats and negative responses, which resulted in a number of subsequent articles by The Mary Sue’s Jill Pantozzi, ComicsAlliance’s Andy Khouri, and many more that opened a larger discussion about the treatment of women and minorities in the comic book industry. This eventually led Asselin to post a follow-up article detailing the kinds of threats she received titled It Happened To Me: I Received Rape Threats After Criticizing A Comic Book.
In response, comic book editor Rachel Edidin launched the We Are Comics campaign. This is a social media campaign that asks comics fans, professionals, and journalists to speak out and show just how diverse and welcoming the comic book community community can be by submitting a photo and bio to the campaign’s tumblr or Twitter with the hashtag #IamComics. I decided to go straight to the source and interview Edidin to learn more about the campaign.
