Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 46

Week 46 Picture 1

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: Would household names change the industry?

Would bringing in top New York Times Bestselling novelists do the trick? Or how about big screen screenwriters? How about TV writers? Or even something as simple as reviewers, critics, bloggers, and/or journalists? Maybe celebrities, such as world-famous A-list actors, directors, athletes, or musicians? And if they were brought in to replace the current pool of comic writers, whether it be slowly or rapidly, would it be for the better, for the worse, or would there be no change at all?

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?

I would have to say that it might nor hurt. Look at the comic book stories that have spun from the Dark Tower series of one of my favorite authors, Stephen King. To have him come along and pen some stories for any book, would be a cool idea.
Hollywood movie types? I would be too afraid they might want to "make the character their own" and that is what we don't really need. Assistance on big crossover events or orchestration of milestone stories, that may be a good opportunity to show what they can do.
Just as we saw with Stan Lee reimagining some of the DC Comics heroes, it would cool to see what some movie stars, athletes, and such would bring to the table.


Eventually… my name will change the industry.
