Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 15
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: What is your favorite comic creator meltdown?
Was Tony Harris and his “fake nerd girls” rant enough to make you tear up all your Starman comics? Do you think the way Rob Liefeld so publicly fought with Scott Snyder on Twitter after being fired from DC just confirmed that he deserved to go? Was Chuck Austen’s angry blog enough to justify his departure as longtime X-Men writer at Marvel? Do you stick to the classic crazies like Alan Moore and Frank Miller when you need your daily dose of comic drama? When Dan Slott started getting death threats for his treatment of the character Spider-Man, did he maybe earn a few harsh remarks when he compared himself to Stan and Jack? Or do you just ignore all of the “behind the pages” drama and enjoy your funnybooks as they are?
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?
