Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 4
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: Who is more responsible for the success of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee or Jack Kirby?
Are they both equals in the realm of comic book creator gods? Do you think that the Fantastic Four would still be cool without Jack Kirby? Would someone else have created Spider-Man if Stan Lee hadn’t done so? Do you think Jack’s DC Comics work overshadows or diminishes his Marvel Comics work? Does Stan’s continued celebrity status in the comic world today make him hip and cool or an outdated relic? Or do you think that they both just lucked out and were at the right place at the right time? In other words, are you Team Stan or are you Team Jack?
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?
