I bought a Vertigo GN the other day (Joe the Barbarian). I read Wonder Woman in trade or at least I'd like to. I also buy up any Jack Kirby stuff they release.

Exactly, this is what makes us different from DC's attitude. Batman is still one of my fav books and I'll keep reading it as long as Snyder makes it awesome. If DC did something great tomorrow, I'd say how cool it was. If they offered us an interview with someone, we'd do it. We aren't going to cover something good just so we get something in return, but we also aren't going to cover something bad just because they wanna dick around.

Most of all, we don't need to do anything because, chances are, the same genius that made this dumb call will keep screwing up other stuff until they get fired anyway.

That's fine. The way I see it, they are still a company that puts out a product and their practices will warrant how I consume the product. I don't see this blacklisting as fair, so why should I continue to buy their product? Is not a necessity and I have plenty of alternatives to choose from.

It's like Sprite. I love it, but the company that makes it is a shitlord. Therefore I don't buy it.

Granted, DC and the OH isn't the unethical mess that is coca-cola, but still, they don't want to hear negative opinions from consumers so why should I consume?

It was Robinson and Earth 2.

Mind you I didn't bring up the fact that I became friends with Lobdell who went out of his way to be a fill in guest on the podcast and answer fan questions that one episode.

But hey, we're completely anti-dc right? :roll:

Well, Image and Dark Horse both like us. Marvel seems to be okay with us, or at least they don't deny us stuff when we ask. IDW's EiC has laughed at a couple of our articles on Twitter.

But the BBC and Thomas Jane aren't fans of us.

wow... what little respect i had for management at DC is pretty much gone now. I have nothing against the creators since its not their call. But to not be able to take a freaking joke is sad. Granted its not like we've ever really had access in the first place, but come on.

:-( This makes me sad. We could have had such a good working relationship that would have benefited both. I don't think they realize what a horrible marketing move this is on their part. Interviews paint such a good light of the backbone of their work: the creators. We buy books because of the people who create them, we become invested in those people by following their work when they branch out, and in the end we want to buy more from a good company that supports them.

As Blue intimated, we may still have access to Vertigo creators. DC's publicity was looped in on my interview with Sean Murphy. I guess since he does creator-owned work at Vertigo, they really couldn't decline on his behalf (I'm speculating on that being the case).
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

You guys pissed off Thomas Jane? Ah man.

I'm confused, does this mean that reporters for the Outhouse say they are representing the website before asking questions? Or is it necessary to get one on one questions and answers from creators? Like a press pass sort of thing.

Ooo, a new question for Frank, are the big publishers that insecure.
