What's the big deal?

Avi at FCMM reports that DC writer Joshua Fialkov is quitting his gigs with the company because ... the comics giant wants to "kill off" one of its main black characters (the Green Lantern John Stewart).

To which I say, "So what??" If this is supposed to be some socially/racially/morally conscious objection, gimme a royal break. As if "death" means anything in comics anymore. If anything, I'm willing to bet this editorial mandate is just another sales gimmick -- pretty much like all comicbook "deaths" are.

At any rate, today Bleeding Cool is reporting that Stewart will not be killed off.

Assuming they were to kill him off, expect the usual suspects to accuse DC of "racism" and an Al Shapton-led boycott of DC.

And yeah, you're right. Deaths in comic books are meaningless and that's why the genre is in trouble these days.
