Comic creators, media cut ties with Dynamite due to Comicsgate affiliation

Many in the comic books industry are voicing their concerns about Dynamite’s support of Comicsgate.

Mark Russell Tweeted yesterday he was wrapping up his Red Sonja #24 script due to contractual obligations, but will no longer be accepting further work from Dynamite Entertainment due to their affiliation with the Comicsgate movement. In the Twitter thread, Russell explained the decision came because, “When a creep walks into a bar, I think they should be the ones to leave” but that “if they won’t leave the bar, then I have to.”

Twitter was a hotbed of anger and frustration towards Dynamite Entertainment beginning late Thursday, July 16th, when Dynamite’s official Twitter account shared an Indiegogo campaign belonging to a creator affiliated with Comicsgate.

Over the course of the last 48 hours, many websites in the comics industry took to Twitter to voice their concern about the move by Dynamite, as well as vow to not cover Dynamite while they actively ally themselves Comicsgate, including us.

Dynamite Entertainment

Red Sonja #13, written by Mark Russell, is set to release in comic shops July 22nd.

Mark Russell’s friend and artist on Second Coming, Richard Pace, took to Twitter to defend Russell’s actions.

Other creators, like Rahsan Ekedal, voiced concern about Dynamite’s actions and let his followers know on Twitter he was reaching out to his editor to voice concern. He also noted in the Twitter thread his editor is not part of Dynamite but a subcontractor. Ekedal was set to draw an upcoming James Bond miniseries for Dynamite.

We’ll keep you up to date as we learn more from creators who are reacting to Dynamite’s recent actions. There’s no word yet from Dynamite, even as pressure continues to mount.
