Brian Clevenger on inclusiveness

Brian Clevinger, writer and co-creator of the Atomic Robo comics, has a very succinct post up on his blog about how he strives for accessibility and inclusiveness in his comics.

“I think there’s a perception that making an effort to be inclusive means artlessly shoehorning a bunch of unnatural “politically correct” material from a master checklist handed down from the Office of the Liberal Elite.

Go read the post here to see what he’s talking about.

Also worth considering, their promise.
