Joe Glass writes occasionally for Bleeding Cool, as well as writing comics such as his LGBTQ superhero team comic The Pride and Stiffs, self published and published digitally through ComiXology Submit. I really should review the new The Pride collection, but I am worried about accusations of ethical compromise, though I don't know why, it's never worried me before.
Richard Johnston: Joe, how do you feel about not only your Twitter account but also that of your LGBTQ superhero team comic The Pride suddenly being followed by Newsarama?
Joe Glass: I am surprised! They never paid much attention to me before when I was actually trying to draw attention to the book lol! But hey, there's some news to come about The Pride in the coming months, so maybe they just have FABULOUS timing.
RJ: Are you planning to write your tweets, or those of your LGBTQ superhero team comic The Pride any differently, now that you know you have the eyes of Newsarama upon you?
JG: Like the glorious Nicki Minaj, I'ma say what I want when I want and if they don't like it, I won't pay them no mind
RJ: Do you think that Newsarama know something that you don't?
JG: I certainly hope they do! Seriously, if they know some company is waiting to get in touch, call me! Off topic, but why the hell am I considered the insider knowledge bank of Bleeding Cool? I've had three BCers ask me what's going on with SDCC like I'd know something they don't lol
RJ: I really should get that sorted this weekend. Anyone want to go to San Diego – or any other show this year for Bleeding Cool, get in touch, fast. But with me, not Joe. Talking of which, if I were to review your LGBTQ superhero team comic The Pride this weekend for Bleeding Cool, do you have any concerns that I would be ethically compromised in my review?
JG: No. As I've said with any and all people who have reviewed it, if they think it's sh-t, say it. Constructive criticism is more use to me than singing false praises. And I know that you would be honest in what you think of it.
Well at least I know what I'm doing this weekend now… this interview joins this article in the "Rich Johnston will really write about anything, won't he?" stakes.
