Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’s Torso?

To be clear, the comic is a critique of sexism in gaming and the game industry.

“But Jack,” you’re no doubt thinking “that’s obvious!  Don’t you have faith in me as a reader?”

“Yes,” I respond. “Yes, I do dear reader. After all, you’re part of the real cool club that is Unicorn Soup!”

That said, you never know where your comic will wind up…plus there are a lot of stupid people in the world.

Take as evidence the inexplicable promotional campaign that was the Dead Island:  Riptide’s torso boobs statue. A company that earlier suffered from the ignominy of the a bit of left over code labeling the female lead a “Feminist Whore.” A bit of code, no matter how tasteless and ugly, could just be the remnant of a hateful programmer -and shouldn’t necessarily be held against an entire organization.  A promotional campaign complete with a tiny busty bust–sure doesn’t speak well of the corporate climate surrounding Deep Silver.

I like clear glaring displays of stupidity. It lets you know who to avoid, and who to avoid giving your money to.

Cheers,

Jack
