Frank Cho Talks Comicsgate

Comic book writer/artist Frank Cho writes to Bleeding Cool. This is what he had to say,

"It has come to my attention from various sources that people are associating me with Comicgate, an alt-right hate group in the comic book field.

As a proud liberal Democrat, I'm against everything Comicsgate stands for. I'm Pro-Equal Rights. Pro-Diversity. Pro-Comics. I always believed that everyone is welcomed at the comic table and no one group should try to force another to their idea of what is normal and not normal.
