Exactly right, Ron

Comics writer Ron Marz tweets:

He won't see Ender's Game because Orson Scott Card wrote it and we saw what his now-aborted writing gig on Superman led to. Marz won't have anything to do with DragonCon because an accused pedophile still collects money from it.

And I have no problem with either. But as I replied to Marz on Twitter, his reasoning is the main factor in MY not having purchased a new comic in about seven years. That is, I detest the less-than-subtle [leftist] politicking in comics' pages, not to mention the [leftist] outspoken-ness of contemporary creators (and corresponding nasty responses to criticism) on social media.

I'll be seeing it, because I'm a fan of the novel and Card in general.

How far does the boycott extend? Will he boycott Harrison Ford's movies now because he was in Ender's Game?

What's this about Dragoncon, I'm not familiar with the accusations.

I know only what I've read, Duff. Apparently its founder has been accused of molesting some boys ... hasn't gone to trial yet but looks pretty damning. And due to some legal stuff, he still gets payments from the Con 'tho he isn't directly involved anymore.

On the Dragoncon thing... I actually agree with Marz. I wouldn't want to support a pedophile, either.

...have you read Card's version of Hamlet?

He actually wrote one?

Let's just say that it's Reason #59 that I don't like most "modern" retellings, it's called "Hamlet's Father" by the way.
