Andy Diggle just retweeted the original article.

Man, whisper it quietly, but DC blacklisting us is probably the best thing to ever happen to us (apart from me joining obvs :P )

God only knows how far this thread has ventured off course, as I've only kept up with it here and there, but wanted to post something that goes along with my first post in the thread:

And really, what this tells everyone is that any site that you see DC working with, you know those sites aren't giving you honest commentary and reviews.


It was an interesting look at a panel coverage from BC:

In the days since, I’ve been reading coverage of the panel, and I find it particularly troubling how different news sources have either ignored this part of the Q&A, or mentioned it in a rather disingenuous way: Comic Book Resources describes the exchange as “lively and light-hearted”, Newsarama brushes it off by quoting Brevoort’s joke about doing better “the next time we kill Luke Cage”. I thought that the Marvel staffers onstage were clearly thrown off-balance by the question, but dealt with it in an up-front and sincere way; quoting only their jokes makes them appear less sensitive than they actually were, and reflects the media’s disinterest in continuing this conversation.


Here's the link to the whole article http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/05/01/comics-gender-race-and-pop-music-at-c2e2-you-know-the-usual/ But after being in the environment a few times already at conventions, it offers a look at what I've often seen where you are either in the circle of buddies with PR people, or not, and how to stay there.

I have no problem believing our snarky take on things is probably the biggest issue DC has with us, but I can guarantee you, even if we wrote our articles straight, but still honest, we'd still be getting the same treatment. They don't want people reporting on certain things, or offering a view that's not beneficial, they view geek websites as if we worked for them in marketing. It's pretty sad that any comic book "journalist" that's been in those environments would have any problem believing what went on between us and DC.
