Over the past month, myself and Kyle Starks have dedicated ourselves to one goal: Discovering how Scott Steiner went from Michigan born good ol’ boy to The Big Bad Booty Daddy.
Today, we recorded an hour and half long, special edition of Have A Nice Day and in two hours you can all bear witness to our findings.
Holla if ya hear me.

Anonymous asked: After "Don't rape" and "Don't threaten rape" what's the best way for men to improve the lives of women and girls in geekdom?

postcardsfromspace:

Okay, look: “Don’t rape” and “don’t threaten rape” are pinpoint-specific parts of social compact, also known as “the bare minimum expectations for getting to be part of society.”

These are things that should be taken as a given. Don’t hold up ”don’t rape” and “don’t threaten rape” like they are gifts.

I mean, don’t do those things, and deter others from doing them, and talk about all of this, but, fuck, man.

Anyway.

The best way men can improve the lives of women and girls in geekdom is to do their damnedest to shift the balance of power. Geek dudes—especially white geek dudes—you have something the ladies do not: you have a platform from which to speak about issues of justice with relative impunity. Use it. Better yet, share it with or give it to someone who does not have that privilege.

Are you a pro on a panel that’s all white dudes? Give up your seat to a woman of color. Encourage other panelists to do the same. Straight-up refuse to be part of panels that do not work toward equal representation. Hold speaker and guest lists at cons to the same standard. And talk about what you are doing, and why.

If you are in a position that gives you hiring power, hire women—especially into positions where they will have power, not just low-level editorial and work-for-hire gigs. Actively seek and use the input of women, and go out of your way to make really damn sure they’re credited for those contributions

Seek and vocally advocate for works by and about women, for female-friendly and generally diversity-friendly publishers, retailers, and fan communities. When someone does shit right, vote with your dollars and spread the word. When someone fucks up, call them out, and—if there’s any real potential for it and you’ve got the capacity—offer them impetus for and tools to change.

Buy girl books. Buy books with pink covers, and read them in public. Break down the box of geek masculinity, and live the geek culture you want to see and be part of. Subvert everything.

Meanwhile: Hold other men accountable. Don’t tell rape jokes. Call out bullshit.

And respect the anger of those of us who have been consistently marginalized. If you want to be an ally in this fight, recognize that the fight is not about you: sometimes solidarity means giving other people space to be frustrated and angry at a system from which you directly benefit, and sometimes that means that they will, by extension, be angry at you—and that this, along with everything else, means *that system* is your common enemy.

Speaking of systems: Educate yourself. Read How to Suppress Women’s Writing and call that shit out. Understand that in this fight, your voice is generally considered to mean more than mine. Fight that inequality as hard as you can—but meanwhile, while you’ve got that platform, use it.

The Kickstarter for my 200 page OGN, SEXCASTLE, is now halfway through. 
Think about this:  a 200 page graphic novel in the vein of 80s Action Fims about personal redemption featuring nunchucks and bad-assery and explosions and fistfights and tough guy talk - and it’s completely done.
 So, right now, if you back my Kickstarter for $5 in 15 days you are going to get the book digitally.  Not six months from now, not maybe a year, not three months from now.  15 days.
200 pages for $5!
And listen, when I break $9,000 (I’m less than $200 away) I’m hooking everyone up with an anthology mini-comic of all the little comics I put together this year (including Special Agent Toddler In A Man’s Body, my Parable comic, my WCW/NWA Robopocalypse comic previously only available in the Atomic Elbow zine).  That includes you digital backers.  You’ll get a 18-20 page minicomic, along with the 200 page book now.
For $5. 
But you only got 15 days.
OH, and if you get the physical book (starting at $25 - that includes S&H)?  Right now you also get a bookmark, stickers, temporary tattoos, maybe a customized Assassin Union Membership Card and the mini-comic anthology.   And there are still commissions or add on tiers where you can get my previous Kickstarter-ed book, Legend of Ricky Thunder (called by some the Best Wrestling Comic Ever Made)
That’s a deal, folks.
And look at the nice things that have been said so far about it:
"Kyle Starks takes his action movie fetish,goes public with it, and abuses the hell out of it with comic book punches, kicks, and speed lines."
Michel Fiffe, creator of Copra
"200 page graphic novel called "The best OGN of the year" by ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims."
Chris Sims, Comicsalliance
"Starks has made a book that should decidedly put him on the map as this book has every potential to be a mainstream hit, and it would be a shame if you let this book pass you by."
Matthew Meylikhov, Multiversity Comics

That’s right, IT’S MICHEL FIFFE APPROVED. 
Also, the best comic news outlets in the world said it’s good.  It’s for real good, guys.  And for $5 you’re getting it digitally in 15 days.
Sweet nibs, guys.  That’s a ding dang deal!  
But you only have 15 days to get it.

London Super Comic Convention starts today. Just a quick reminder that I’ll be in Artist Alley, table A20 so if you’re at the show please feel free to stop by and say hi.

I’ll be sketching all weekend, as well as having stacks of original art, including pages I inked for the Splinter Cell: Blacklist graphic novel penciled by the mighty Marc Laming (Kings Watch, Exile of the Planet of the Apes)

How Dave Stokes isn’t a household name in comic books is beyond me.

Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.
