Catch the discussion on "Misogyny in Comics" on the latest episode of "Fantastic Forum"

Of all the episodes of the Washington, D.C.-based "Fantastic Forum" TV show that Billie Rae Bates of BRBTV has done, this is the one she's the most geeked about. If the title of the episode isn't enough to grab you, the discussion definitely will.

Are females treated differently when they walk into a comic shop? Do girls in geek communities like online gaming arenas get rape threats? Are there fewer women in the comics industry because they don't have as much opportunity as men? Join BRB and Bria LaVorgna, El Anderson and Abigail Pritchard for a very thought-provoking discussion.

The episode originally aired on Sunday in the D.C. area and is now available online for global viewing! Join the discussion by sending in your comments!
