At least Ron Marz is consistent on this

... if he means it. The comic writer on CBR today:

There are likely people who will avoid my work because of this column. There are certainly those who already do so because I don't hide my convictions or my politics on Twitter. And that's fine. Orson Scott Card didn't hide his beliefs either. This is what I'm doing about it.

Isn't that big of him? It's "fine" if you skip his work because of his obnoxiousness on Twitter. What a guy. But at least (on paper) he doesn't have a beef if you say "F*** you" to him by thumbing your nose at his product. And as we've noted here ad nauseam, there's plenty of reason to do just that if you're right-of-center with your politics. For instance, he tweets


In other words, you who believe in gun rights should "STFU" because we have people like those in the TSA to defend us.

His column is on Orson Scott Card, by the way, whose Ender's Game just hit theatres. Card, as you may recall, isn't particularly fond of gay rights.

UPDATE: As pointed out in the comments section by Andrew, Marz's fellow (and much better) writer Peter David takes him to task for his column. I can't say I agree 100% with David, but he's spot on regarding the radical left and their boycotts and [political] pressure.

UPDATE 2: Check out this interview with Card, via Nate Winchester.

UPDATE 3: Marz has finally opined on the ObumbleCare disaster -- and it's the GOP's fault! But of course!


Remember: "There are certainly those who already do so because I don't hide my convictions or my politics on Twitter. And that's fine."

It sure is.

I plan on seeing the movie eventually, as a fan of the original book. Apparently some progressives have changed their stance on seeing the movie, because Card isn't going to make a penny off it due to having sold the rights to the book years ago.

I dislike Marz immensely, largely because of his immature antics on Twitter and also I think he's a terrible writer who has never written anything of substance in his life. He ran Green Lantern into the ground during the 1990s (although Geoff Johns furthered the decline in the 2000s), to name just one example.

Saw it yesterday. Well done. Card lives here in Greensboro, NC and writes a weekly column for the conservative alternative newspaper the Rhino Times

Hope Ender's Game has a big boxoffice weekend.

WIRED has a rare interview with Card .. here ..

Well BOO HOO for those who expect everyone to be be everything else for them. Go ahead and stay home, it's better seats for me and my gang. Oh, and that acceptance and openmindeness, tolerance and inclusion you seem so proud of? Sorry, it has to include those who offend you too. He's writing sci-fi books, not social policy. Get over your damn selves, and quit trying to step over everybody else.
You're missing a great flick.

Ridiculous. Ron Marz is a complete tool. I read the comments section and lover Peter David's comment.

I can honestly say I don't know if I have ever read any of Marz creative output but his little whiny posts on Twitter and this one on CBR don't make me want to.

I am however a massive fan of Peter David's and him telling Marz how wrong he is made my morning.

What is hilarious is how the pu**y Marz WHINES on Twitter about "the Internet" when people react to his Twitter (and other) babble. Uh, dude -- you're USING the Internet for the precisely the same purpose as those you complain about.

Grow the f*** up.

Growing up in aspects of Dana Point and Fallbrook, my grandparents held and own a beachhouse in a small group of St.
Malo in California.
