DC Comics’ Intern:  Worse Speler Then RU!

Misspelling something so bad that it makes another word? Sounds like RU’s entire academic career…and he has a Masters Degree!



Source: It’s Not Like DC is Swimming in Female Creators to Begin With …

As pointed out by Sue over at DCWomenKickiGass, DC intern, Vlad Kozinkerkov, misspelled two creator’s names in the November Solicitations for November 2013. The error was so egregoius that Vlad ended up changing the gender of each creater.

That’s rite, DC, who is as well known for their gender relations department as The Outhouse is for its subltle whit, didn’t catch that they had changed the sex of two of their creators.

Form DCWomenKickiGass:

and

To be fair to Vlad, it seems that he caught the Nicola --> Nicolas error himself before the solicitations were picked up by us, but the World's Finest mistake made it all the way to The Outhousers’ front page.

Now, you might be saying to yourself: “RU, Vlad is not a native English speaker and his spelling should not be held to the same expectations as yours, soemone who grew up in The United States and has been emmeresed in English since he was born.”

To that I say: Shut up! Let me have this.

In all seriousness, this is the small ball garbage that keeps biting DC in the ass. Although not Gail Simone or Jill Thompson, both Nicola Scott and Emanuela Lupaccino have had enough work with DC, and other comic book companies, that DC should, I repeat SHOULD, be able to keep their gender straight. I’m not going to fault anyone for a few mispelt words, but, c’mon, aren’t there people paid to check these things?

***whispers off behind RU***

What! No, I missed that! DC didn’t even check to see if they could name a book Collider? Does anyone actually do anything over there besides work on two issues and move on? FUUUCK!, this is just sad.

Daniele Didio and Jane Lee need to get their acts together.

Counter reset.

And I'll point out that DC doesn't have a book named "Earth's Finest" :P

DC Editorial treats its creators like interchangeable cogs that can be removed at the drop of a hat regardless of their talent or popularity. Why would you expect them to bother learning their names?

I can see dropping a letter or adding a letter accidentally. You misspelled a word totally. :lol:

It could be a worse mistake.

I got the text for them from CBR, so more likely CBR caught and fixed it.

Aren't Nicolas and Trevor Scott an alternative lifestyle married couple? I remember when Nicolas was running that inside joke about being an Australian woman (using a photograph of the judge, Gertrude Steinbrenner, who officiated his and Trevor's marriage).

no one's going to point out that "emmeresed" isn't a word?
