Welcome to Digression Girl
You are cordially invited to look at the world sideways.
Why Choose DigressionGirl.com When the Internet is Full to the Brim with
a Variety of Comic Book, Literature, Movie, & TV Show Sites?
An excellent question!
This site is all about creating a user-friendly and friendly-user space for discussion threads, conversation.
The site features a blog section where different contributors discuss different aspects of the content so many of us love! Our bloggers have a writer who has embraced her idiosyncratic discourse whose digressions on digressions will either let you learn new info, see the interconnected nature of genre, make you nuts, all of the above; a noble knowledge-based knight who spans topics and experiences and whose insight into what makes movies, TV, comic books, and more excellent–a great script; a mysterious spy who comes in from the rain to revisit, review, and share what he’s learned, a gifted at stealthily identifying society and trends to watch; a powerful wizard with a penchant for role-playing board games and video games, and who can deconstruct a story arcs and one-offs with a trained literary eye; tangents with teeth, a stealthy sleuth of society and its trends; a terror cursed to a life of living tangentially and who is DigressionGirl.com’s resident Lois Lane, reporting the news and our main interviewer and show-movie-comic book & graphic novel recapper–there will be spoilers, proceed at your own risk; and finally, several regular bloggers, and a page for contributors whose posts may, by necessity of busy lives, post less frequently, but are absolutely worth the wait when they do; and comment sections on the blogs for your impressions, disagreement with the blogger, or additional information that you can share with the writer and other commenters!* You can access your favorite blogger using the menu tabs up top or clicking on their logo links.
If you want to participate, contribute a blog post, or just ask questions, we are down with that. All blogs, regular and guest, are unpaid, but you retain the copyright for your blog posts, comments, and answers. If you’re interested in becoming a regular blog Contributor (on hold until fourth quarter 2022) or want be a Guest Blogger, reach out to us using the Contact Us page.
And to Sweeten the Pot . . .
Yep, Homelander is telling the truth–I know, right? You never know what he’s going to do next. But there are no ‘bots here. Moderation is done by humans and within the context of whole conversations. Meaning revenge complaints can’t game the system, and people who abuse it will find themselves in the chipped, cracked, and broken system.
If you wish to report bad behavior you can hit the “Report” button on the Community: Q & A and Community. We are working on getting a report function for the comments on blogs and reviews but until we do, you can report bad behavior via the Contact Us page. Be sure to be specific as to what post the comment is associated with, as well as anything that helps us identify it for review.
A Promise from the Site to Members, Followers, and Guests Alike
My personal promise to you, the reader, and perhaps for some of you, future contributors:
This site is run with integrity and fairness. Arguments will happen, and should happen, but they will be civil and respectful, or someone will be asked to apologize. Three strikes and you’re out. Who watches the watchman (me)? Mr. DG (aka On-Topic Man) and Sir Knowsalot keep me honest.
Some Legal Stuff
A caveat to people who may see this as an easy poaching ground: The names of each contributor and artist are known to the site admin and if they or we come across their work posted/published under another name, action will be swift and decisive. The option to copy from this site is disabled and we know the same work-a-rounds you do: Please respect the work of the writers and artists on this site. They have worked hard to create something beautiful, welcoming, and informative for you enjoy and participate in. The writers are unpaid and contribute their work out of a genuine love of the genre and a desire to share their thoughts. And while the artists are paid for their work, it doesn’t make their dedication to the site any less than the contributors. Stealing the product of writers and artists is about as low as a person can go. You will not only be banned from the site, you will face legal action.
Ugh! That was a mood killer, but it had to be stated. Fortunately there are far more people who just love the content and beautiful art and respect the people who create it than those who don’t! But some things just have to be said . . . or so it has been explained to me by my lawyers!

*Please Note: All opinions expressed by contributors are their opinions and may not reflect the views of DigressionGirl.com, Digression Girl Media, or owner Michelle Girard. We encourage a free exchange of ideas and only in very rare cases will Contributors be asked to take down a post. If you are offended by a post, please feel free to express it in the Comments of that post, in a civil and respectful way, so the Contributor may respond to you. Civil discourse often results in a better understanding of the issue by both parties. Stick to the issue and present your position clearly and without condemnation, insults, or sharing assumptions regarding the Contributors political affiliation, religion/religious status, or character. Failure to do so will not only stall discourse, depending on your approach you may see your comment be asked to revise you comment to be less inflammatory, and failing this, see removed for violation of Site Rules. This decision, if made, will be made by a person, not a ‘bot. If you feel your reply does not warrant removal you mat contact us via the Contact page. Be assured before any such action is taken, you will have already had a warning at which point you may challenge the position of the admin/moderator, who will review the flagged comment within the context of the entire exchange. People who report others frivolously may face action consistent with that of people who violate other rules. Keep in mind admins and moderators have access to original entries and subsequent edits, so if you report an offensive or rude comment, we can and will verify that the comment was unprovoked or not. In such cases both the offending comment and the offending comment to which it responded will face the same remediation actions. This is not Quora and does not utilize mindless ‘bots like many sites; we are therefore harder to “game.”
