Dark Reign: The Hood #1 - now with 75% more racism!
Ever since it was announced that Jeff Parker would be scribing the Dark Reign: The Hood mini I've been wondering -- wondering with a sense of terrorized fascination, I should add -- what it was going to be like. Would Parker be able to make the Dormammu!Hood actually seem like a worthy and viable contender to be the Sorcerer Supreme?
CBR has an eight-page preview up.
I now have my answer, and it's a resounding silence fraught with puzzlement and horror.
Because you know what I didn't expect from Jeff Parker's work on this mini?
Straight up racial stereotyping that slides down the slippery slope straight into the ditch of racist tropes.
