Creator rights are dead. Half of you nincompoops will probably celebrate it as well.


Hold on a second - she was booted from Agent X for "differences" with editor Andrew Lis. This move to Saint her is baffling - she was joking last week about having a character foisted on her who she called "Company Man". She's lucky enough to be working a high profile book, she should have the decency to do what her editor wants.

Rob Liefeld leaving THREE books because of conflicts with editorial is met with laughter from you, but one (average, IMO ) writer gets booted from an (average, IMO) book, and you refuse to even consider the possibility that I have an opinion? I can't decide which one of you is a bigger ass to talk to.

It was? :smt102

maybe if you didn't constantly claim writers and artists were fired from books when they simply moved to other things you'd be taken a bit more seriously with your opinions. (as many of us constantly tell you but you can't seem to process what we're saying)

Sorry let me clarify that: I don't remember laughing at Liefeld. I remember pointing out that the way he left could have been handled better by all parties involved but I don't remember laughing at him in particular.

"Constantly"? What planet are you on? Go through my posts - I deal more with abuse from people like you, than I do pointing out when DC boots a creator from a book.

And i'll "process what you're saying" when I start getting any sort of respect, for having a mind of my own, my own opinions, and not just sucking whatever you and Fat Bob Kirkman want me to believe down.

You mean mindlessly agreeing with people's opinions and letting them walk allover me? I'll be sure to get right on that.

Ask yourself this: I was threatened with a ban, because I don't like Rob Kirkman. If I liked him, would I have gotten the same message?

There's a difference between "pushing my views down your throat" and being a sensible human being. :smt005

If you dont think I'm "sensible" - your words, because I don't like Bob Kirkman, or in this case, Gail Simone - you're an even bigger POS than I thought.

For the record - I don't mind Simone, I've met her, she was really nice, but all this nonsense could have been avoided if she did her job, and did the story her bosses wanted her to do. I hope you all remember that, when Tom DeFalco takes over the book.
