That said, this being my first major con, i really appreciated Marvel's lighthearted and approachable sensibility. At any given panel, they felt personable, reasonable, and humorous; talking to the fans like old friends, whereas the DC panels felt like they were holding guns to the backs of the creators, forcing them to repeat canned statements. I believe i mentioned it to Zechs, but i certainly felt a coldness from DC editorial in general to the fan community at large.
No doubt there. I just wanted to end things civil. All I wanted this past weekend was two interviews and an answer to Young Justice/Green Lantern: The Animated Series. Two positive interviews. Interviews where I'd not ask them anything about the bad. I mean honestly, you have Pete Tomasi going out with pretty much a whimper after the HUGE GLC run he's had next to Geoff Johns and talk a little bit of the silent issue. Kyle Higgins is getting no pub save one bit from IGN on Batman Beyond.
The only positive was that they would look into my Young Justice/GL question. Still I feel like being in detention at school. I know that wasn't the intended point they were making, but that's what it felt like. Me being punished for speaking my mind (even if they said not me, I doubt it) and others at this site.
