Ipecac in Print: DC Comics to Publish Muslima Convert’s Propaganda Series

By Debbie Schlussel
As we know, many Muslim “wives” and their husbands retain separate and different surnames so that they can game the system–game security databases, game federal investigators, and game various welfare agencies and tax-funded entitlement programs. There is nothing in Islam preventing or requiring a wife from not taking on her husband’s last name . . . nothing, except cheating, deceiving, and ultimately destroying the “infidels.”
But an American wannabe big-time comic-book authoress and Muslima convert wants to turn legitimate security questions and other proper security measures into a victimhood propaganda comic book series. And she’s succeeded, getting DC Comics to make a whole comic book series out of her baseless “Islamophobia” whinings. She’s also succeeded in getting a Wall Street Journal “reporter” with a Muslim-sounding first-name to write a sympathetic, apologist article about it.


Muslima Convert & Comic Book Propagandist G. Willow Wilson

I’ve repeatedly written on this site how Marvel and DC–the two major comic book hero publishers–have repeatedly pandered to Muslims of the extremist variety (as if there’s any other kind) in storylines, characters, and even internships at movie studios.
But it keeps getting worse.

At an airport in Amsterdam several years ago, writer G. Willow Wilson ran into a problem on her way back to Denver. Ms. Wilson, a white woman and Muslim convert from New Jersey, was grilled by an official at the gate for the plane and had to defend why she had a different surname from her husband. “The situation was funny to me,” Ms. Willow says, so she decided to write a comic book about the not-so-friendly skies.
In her comic series “Air,” Ms. Wilson follows a flight attendant who gets drawn into a magical world of intrigue after encountering a mysterious secret agent. Ms. Wilson’s previous comic, “Cairo,” was a surrealistic jaunt through her favorite city and part-time home. She fell in love with the Egyptian capital after a trip there during college. “Nothing works, but everything works out,” she says about the city.
As a child, Ms. Wilson was attracted to comics for their conflicts. “X-Men” was a particular favorite. “[Comics] formed my ideas about heroism and they were more at my level than the bigger classic literatures,” she says.
“Air,” published by Vertigo (the adult imprint of DC Comics) and illustrated by M.K. Perker, is part of Ms. Wilson’s attempt to make sense of her life as a Muslim after 9/11. She says that in the wake of the terror attacks, “It was weird and strange to be a white convert.” She soon found that the very things that made her life difficult also provided great raw material for her comics.

Um, being asked why you have a different last name than your husband at an airport isn’t exactly a “difficult life.” Sounds like someone is very spoiled and very militant about every little thing.
Yeah, remember that BS from Muslims on 9/11 and 9/12 about how they want to help us?
Some of us knew this was pure fertilizer the minute it was uttered. Others are still buying the BS by the truckload. And it will be the slow death of us.
**** UPDATE: Here’s a comic-book pane from G. Willow Wilson’s Islamist propaganda comic book published by DC Comics. (I tried to scan it the best I could, but the original is not readable, and a scan is only as good as the original, at best.) It’s not even accurate, since airline officials long ago stopped being required to ask you who packed your bags. But it’s hardly “Islamophobic” to ask someone traveling on a one-way ticket to New York from an international destination, why they are doing so. That’s called being responsible and vigilant. It’s called security. Because, you know, no Islamic terrorist ever bought a one-way ticket to a U.S. destination, right? If that’s “Islamophobic,” we might as well just pack up and convert to Islam right now. But for these self-proclaimed victims, everything is victimhood for Muslims. Everything.


**** UPDATE #2: Looks like G. Willow Wilson is upset that I called her out on her ridiculous Islamic propaganda. But she’s even more upset that her comic book editors “are Jewish, gay or atheist.”

Yeah, time for one of your religion’s ritual “theo-cleansing” jihads on the comic book industry, right Willow?

“The situation was funny to me.”
No doubt this series will be a laugh a minute. Future issues could include knee slappers like “How I lost my clitoris” and “The day they set my teenaged sister on fire after she was gang raped”. Those should keep ’em rolling in the aisles.

Not only is she a flake for the reasons Debbie states, but her name…. Holy crap! Anyone ever see Tim Allen’s TV sitcom, Home Improvement, which ran from 1991 – 1999? His neighbor, Wilson Wilson, had a niece. Take a wild guess as to what her name was. Yep… Willow Wilson. HAAA How silly can this get?? 🙂

Wow. I’ve never seen someone so completely misunderstand something or someone. Nothing in the panel you scanned (incredibly poorly, I might add; I own the issue in question, and the paper quality is NOT the limiting factor here) is portrayed as anything but standard-procedure airport security. No comment is made in the comic or elsewhere that asking those questions is unreasonable, unfair or racist. In fact, the character asking the questions, Blythe, is the comic’s protagonist, who is consistently portrayed as a good and sympathetic character.
Nowhere in the series at all has Islamophobia–or really, even religion at all–come up as an issue, a theme, a conflict, anything. It’s just Willow Wilson and M.K. Perker (the comic’s artist, whom you have not yet mentioned) telling a good story. but I suspect you would know these things if you’d taken the trouble to even read the comic, let alone do any kind of research into it.
As to Willow’s “complaints” as you called them about her editors not being Muslim, if you understood anything about human interaction, or had any interest in objectivity, you’d realize they were not complaints, but statements of fact, something your article is severely lacking. I suggest you seriously consider taking the colossal chip off your shoulder before you examine things in the future. You’re clearly only seeing what you WANT to see. And you’re really giving conservativism a bad name, something it really doesn’t need right now.

Gee, my friend was going to write a comic about the not-so-friendly skies too. How her mom got on a plane and it crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11. DC didn’t buy it since everyone knew the ending and crying at press junkets isn’t sexy. Maybe she should have changed the ending to those cheering in the streets of Gaza?
Cairo would work less if there weren’t so many child slave maids (fun for daddy too). Slave labor does tend to make everything work out. Ironic Egypt has single digit literacy rates, no?
Interesting how problems in life can fuel your identity or your identity is fueled by problems? Hemingway was a drunk but said, “A man’s got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.” Can’t wait to laugh my ass off over girls being blown up for going to school to learn to read…comics.
The only thing she is a victim of is being drawn so un-flatteringly.

I’m chuckling at the vapid comments from Willow Wilson and her Islamic-pandering nutjobs at her forum. Joseph Goebbels would be proud of her efforts in propagandizing her works for clueless comic readers.

Bobby's Brain on March 28, 2009 at 1:52 pm

Kester, Debbie will never take her “colossal chip” off her shoulder so as long as there are always liars, hypocrites, propagandists, thieves, conmen, stupid politicians, big-mouths, panderers, and Islamic fanatics working for, milking and scamming the US government and the American people. G. Willow Wilson and D.C. Comics deserved Debbie’s scorn for misleading the readers and pandering to the Islamic cause.
If you would see from Debbie’s perspective fully, you will understand why she has a “colossal chip” on her shoulder. If you can’t or won’t, then you’re just as bad as these people trying to bring harm to America and scam the government for causes detrimental to freedom.

her airport claim is ridiculous — i am not muslim and was asked that same question at henri coanda aeroport in bucharest (in 2006) — i assumed she was giving me a hard time cuz i was american, which was prob more accurate. i didn’t get my panties in a twist. i’m actually more surprised the worker at the amsterdam airport wasn’t muslim.

Aw, what a cryin’ shame, Willow! You actually had to go through normal security procedures before boarding your flight. By the way, did you have to take your shoes off and have them scanned as well? No? Well, aren’t you the lucky one!
Maybe if your co-religionists hadn’t flown two airliners into tall buildings in New York, crashed another one into the Pentagon, and “lost” one in Pennsylvania before it could reach its intended target (the Capitol or the White House), we all (you included) wouldn’t have to go through all this s–t before getting on our respective flights — ever think of that, dim-wit?
You have my sympathies. [World’s tiniest violin playing . . .]

Debbie, you seem to have missed the point entirely. Ms. Wilson was not complaining that her editors are Jewish, gay or atheist. She was rebutting your claim that Marvel and DC are pandering to Muslims. If Marvel and DC were pandering to Muslims, wouldn’t there be more Muslim writers than just Ms. Wilson at Marvel or DC? If Marvel or DC were pandering to Conservative Muslims, wouldn’t there be fewer Jewish, gay or atheist editors? I think Ms. Wilson was pointing out that Marvel and DC are fairly open and inclusive.
Why are the ONLY reasons you can think for a Muslim Woman (a Muslimah with an “H”) to keep her maiden name “nothing, except cheating, deceiving, and ultimately destroying the ‘infidels’.” Seriously, Debbie, are you THAT bigoted? Could it be that Ms. Wilson is a professional writer who had built a reputation and career around her maiden name and didn’t want to make her fans or the editors she had worked with learn her married name? Britney Spears remained Britney Spears even after she married Kevin Federline! Are you saying Britney is a Muslimah?
I don’t see ANYTHING wrong with a woman keeping her maiden name after getting married. That’s a personal choice and your reading nefarious motives into Ms. Wilson’s choice is just stupid, ignorant and prejudiced. The person who seems militant and spoiled in their writing is YOU, Debbie!
Why is does G. Willow Wilson have to be an apologist for all Islamic Extremists? Why would you say, “Yeah, time for one of your religion’s ritual “theo-cleansing” jihads on the comic book industry, right Willow?”
It appears that you are gearing up for one of your religion’s ritual “theo-cleansing” Inquisitions on all non-believers, right Debbie? See, Debbie? Why should you be made to feel personally responsible for the Spanish Inquisition! It just doesn’t make sense! That kind of logic and rhetoric that makes you come across as a militant bigot, Debbie.

When has Marvel or DC pandered to Muslim extremists? In the 29 years I’ve been reading comics I’ve never seen anything of what you’re blathering about. Give examples, and don’t result to insults if you can.
BTW, I’m going to buy this comic. Monthly. Even the trades.

I think it’s insane to be threatened by any work that humanizes muslims or their faith. The idea that any citizen should be prevented form getting a job in entertainment or having their work published simply because they believe in a particular faith (or NO faith) is antithetical to being an American.
If the work is crappy, I won’t buy it. If it’s great, I will. Just like any other book.

I sure got told.
Allow me to be clearer, because I did read the links. I’m asking where is your evidence? Because all I see is you taking something and then running wild with conspiracy theories and your usual bigotry. Where’s your proof? Where’s your interviews with Marvel employees and the president on their explanation? Where is there any shred of evidence that any of the interns that accept will use this against america? Where’s your evidence that Marvel has or will in the future, pander to extremists in their media or in their business? Where’s your inteview with the president on the matter? Why haven’t you followed up on this story in the years since you first posted?

Sentora on April 1, 2009 at 1:43 pm

Let’s talk about BLATHERING. I’ve followed the links you provided, Debbie, and all I found was more BLATHERING.
You claim that Marvel had killed Captain America because that would please their Muslim friends, another example of pandering. (This conjecture was made without ANY proof, as are most of your wild BLATHERING speculations.) But Marvel Studios are making a Captain America Movie. Why? Debbie? Why? What is the nefarious motive for that? Or was it YOUR spotlight on this situation that MADE Marvel do a complete 180 and go from killing one of it’s most famous characters to promoting that character.
Could it be that you are just a BLATHERING Wing-Nut, Debbie?
You are a lawyer who relies on truthiness versus facts. Blech.
