Influences

Greg Rucka’s essay, “Why I Write Strong Female Characters” from i-O9. Rucka’s body of work was very influenctial on my thinking, especially in the depiction of underrepresented groups. Rucka does not go for the GLAAD/NAACP Propaganda Characters. He writes heroes with heroic ablities and heroic flaws, with tough obstacles to overcome. Of course the question both Rucka and Whedon ask is, “Why doesn’t everyone else?”
