Dynamite issues statement: Comicsgate association “is behind us”

The statement by Dynamite Entertainment is in regards to the recent backlash the company has faced.

Dynamite Entertainment has issued a statement to the press. You can read it in full below.

Statement from Dynamite

July 29, Mt. Laurel, NJ:

“Dynamite Entertainment is a partner in the fight for equality and inclusion. Our company was founded on these core values more than 15 years ago and they are essential to the creative process – the work of visionary artists and entrepreneurs – that we are passionate about. Intolerance has no place in our company or our industry. The impulse behind this brief association was that of helping a friend of many decades and his family, and not how that assistance could potentially affect our valued colleagues, partners, and friends. That association is behind us and this time has strengthened our resolve to continue working with the most diverse talent in creating the best comics possible.”

This statement comes 10 days after many, including AIPT, reacted to Dynamite supporting a known ComicsGate creator. Dynamite publically tweeted at the time.

The tweet came a day after notable creators like Mark Russell publicly said they will no longer work with Dynamite once their contracts are up. Screenrant did a good job collecting various creator tweets in a story about creators who made similar statements to Russell which included Christian Ward and Karla Pacheco.
