Some viewers have criticized Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men for having an all-male cast. In an interview with Metro, Kevin Smith explains that he’d love to see that gender disparity reversed, as long as it’s on someone else’s dime.
“I’ve been pushing since season one, ‘Let’s do Comic Book Women,” Smith said. “I know for a fact there’s gotta be some comic book store out there with an all-woman crew. So I’m all for doing it, man. Somebody else has to put up some loot for it though.”
Smith also added, “I think if maybe we got to season five of Comic Book Men, I could make the viable argument for ‘Isn’t it time? Isn’t it time for Comic Book Women? If we can survive at 12 (midnight), that means Comic Book Women could survive at 12:30 for sure.”
Comic Book Men recently became of one of only two unscripted series remaining on AMC.
Comic Book Men will return for its fourth season on AMC on October 12.
