Dan Slott on voicing his personal opinions online:
If I wanted to sell more comics,— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) February 14, 2016
I'd shut up about gun control, climate change, gay marriage, etc.
and make everybody happy.
But F' it. :-)
And if Slott merely voiced his views on that subject matter, Marvel (and everyone else) shouldn't care. But that's not what he (and his peers) do. They demean, insult, and even troll those who disagree with them.
These folks are supposed to be professionals. Do professionals act like this:
@juddemerson Seriously, fuck off. Please never read my comics again. I don't need money from someone who attacks me out of nowhere.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) March 12, 2014
Maybe this is partly why the "best-selling" comics these days are lucky to have some 100,000 purchased, whereas 20 years ago it was easily ten times that number.Posted by Hube at February 15, 2016 10:02 AM | TrackBack
