Additionally, I don’t see anything degrading about the use of a word as innocuous as “dress.” One homophone does refer to a garment worn primarily by women but that in itself shouldn’t be considered degrading. Additionally, dress has additional homophones that are far more universal: dressing on salad, getting dressed in the morning, dressing up to go out, etc.


Listen, it's great that you want to wave the political flag, and stand right for the proper terms (and I don't mean that in a facetious sense), but... facts are facts.

Regardless of how you see it, comic books do not sell. They do not. And because they do not, companies are doing gimmicks and tricks to boost sales. Comic books especially do not sell when you really take into account what comic volumes used to sell at.

Now, we all know there are many reasons for the major, major decline. I argue one major factor is stigma. Regardless of how it is being interpreted now, the point is, is its interpretation.

And if you want the hobby and format to stay alive, it needs to be changed.

"Comic Book" doesn't sell. Just like "Doll" didn't sell for the male action figure line. I watch The Toys That Made Us... and their issues were all the same. This is not a doll, this is an action, figure.

This is not a dress.

The thing I would like to complain about is that this art is old - from 2015 I think. I don't know if many books use old art for their variants since I don't pay a lot of attention to them, but it seems lazy. I bought one anyway because I like it

Marvel used old McFarlane and Zeck art last year for their "remastered" variants.
