OP/ED: Some Things We Don't Want to See in 2013

ThanosCopter writes a fluff article with no point in order to pad our hit count, just like another website we know.



Source: Inspired by this guy.

One of my Outhouse New Year's Resolutions was to write more articles that could be used as link bait.  So, I've decided to start writing obnoxiously general Top Ten lists. We'll be debuting our slideshow function later this month in order to increase our hit count tenfold. 

Anyways, let's start with some "industry trends" that we'd like to go away in 2013.

1)  Bad comic books

There were a lot of bad comic books published in 2012.  Let's stop that, mmkay?

2)  Cheap sales gimmicks

There were a lot of cheap sales gimmicks in 2012.  I'd prefer to not see those anymore.

3) Trumped up controversy

There were a lot of trumped up controversies that ended up leading nowhere in 2012.  Let's get outraged about important stuff and not silly things.

4) Too many alternate covers

There were a lot of alternate covers in 2012. I'd like less of them, but I still want to see good alternate covers.  Just not bad ones.

5) Fluff articles that have no point

There were a lot of fluff articles that just served to fluff hit counts.  Websites really need to knock that off. [Editor's Note: No, no we don't.]

Be sure to come back tomorrow when we debut our Top Ten Characters with a "Q" in their name! 

Do you agree with the contents of the article?  Be sure to say something on our Facebook page about it!

A lot of the same things were kinda said in the Rama article, but it only took a couple of minutes to get through. Good job. :smt023

6) Shitty websites fellating publishers to get on their good side by treating every inane book vomited out by the big two as if it were manna from heaven dictated by God and illustrated by a host of Seraphim plus Jack Kirby.

I hold out some hope. The new Thunderbolts book has been generally reviled.

I was surprised how much I hated that book. I came in with pretty low expectations and was still dumbfounded how shit it was.

Losing Rucka for this =/

I don't need or want to see "Otto" Parker forcing himself on Mary Jane.
