Sad

I went on Twitter a little bit ago to follow some comics creators. One, however, had blocked my account: Kurt Busiek. I frantically started wondering ... why? The only thing I can think of is that he was miffed at these posts; however, since those, I've written an incredibly favorable review of his epic Avengers Forever ... to which he linked on his Facebook page!

What's sad (and, unfortunately, hypocritical) about this is that many years ago in an e-mail exchange, Kurt said he vehemently disagreed with people expressing their displeasure with a [comics] creator via boycott. He opined, essentially, that it is better to "fight speech with more speech." I had responded that an individual boycott to protest a creator "spitting in the face" of those with whom he disagrees is speech. That, and how does an average guy have the "same degree" of speech that a joe like Busiek possesses? (Of course, that was then, and this is now -- where social media and blogging have flourished to "equal things out" somewhat.)

So, Kurt, is this "battling speech with more speech"-- by preventing someone from reading what you post on social media? I've never been unfair in my criticisms of you; indeed, I've gone out of my way to be as fair to you as humanly possible ... not to mention utterly praise your creative works on this blog and in social media.

Sorry to hear that, Hube. It seems to me that Busiek doesn't like to hear opinions that aren't the same as his these days.

Wow. That's a very telling move on his part.

I thank God for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, etc. It really is an equalizer.

I loved when "Brand New Day" came out and the online reaction was 180 degrees from what would show up in the letters page to Amazing Spider-Man. These guys hate that there are now platforms where we can voice our opinion with countless other fans in an instant.

Posted by: Douglas Ernst at February 3, 2013 05:25 PM

Yeah, my understanding of the letters pages is that they only printed the letters that agreed with them. That's the great thing about the New Media.. fans can get voice their opinions and get them out there on these media platforms in an instant. 13 to 15 years ago even we didn't have all this stuff and the only place you could voice your opinion was on the forums or if they printed it, in the letters pages.
