Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!
This Saturday’s question: Which creator (or creators) will cause you to drop a book?
Does Rob Liefeld’s art cause you to put back even your favorite titles? Could you never understand why John Romita Jr. got to work in comics? Has the fact that Brian Michael Bendis writes every single character like a prepubescent girl turn you off the major Marvel books of the last decade? Will you ever forgive Andy Diggle’s treatment of the character Daredevil? Does Gail Simone’s snark and inability to leave her own personal politics and agendas out of her characters’ lives irritate you enough to abandon your favorite heroes? And what about all of those other love-or-hate creators out there, like Chuck Austen, Paul Jenkins, Grant Morrison, Dan Slott, and Geoff Johns? Or do you think that every creator serves a purpose and it’s up to the editors to keep them focused, on-task, and off the collective fans’ shit list?
So go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?
