Happy new year, all! To celebrate another year of success, I’m going to be bringing you something new, something unique, and something very personal each and every Saturday. A little column I like to call: “Stir the Pot Saturday.” But this will not be a rant on my end. In fact, it will be just the opposite. I might chime in every now and then on the site, the twitter account, or even the facebook page, but for the most part it’s going to be your show.
Every Saturday, I’m inviting you to participate in something new. I’m asking you to stir the pot and cause some ripples in the industry. So welcome aboard. Let’s do this!
Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. Whether it’s Marvel’s Loki or DC’s Mr. Mxyzptlk, comic books have had their fair share of meddling troublemakers throughout time. And whether or not you admit it, like us, you secretly love them. 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.
This Saturday’s question: Which “top comics moment (or moments)” of 2012 were the worst?
Did you absolutely hate the ending to The Amazing Spider-Man? Are you displeased with how DC is handling the return of the Joker? Did you rip The Walking Dead in half at any point this last year? Does the very concept of Before Watchmen still hurt your very soul? Or is there something else… something far more sinister that still keeps you up at night?
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?
