I'm still trying to figure out doombug's ignorant comment, I guess :smt102

Slott really is just a classic fanboy who managed to get work writing the comics instead of whining about them.

Did you miss the part where Jude says DC does it too?

I'm confused. Is this an article about how Scott Snyder is bitching at Bleeding Cool for spoiling comics? Or is Dan Slott writing for DC and I just missed it?

Forgetting syxxpakk's anti Marvel-pro DC bias for a second, this sites anti Marvel agenda would really be on display if Fat Bob got into the same argument with Uncle Rich over Image spoilers.

I appreciate Slott's concern, but I must say in this case Johnston has won the argument.

I agree with the argument that Slott doesn't have a leg to stand on in this case considering he's spoiled stories himself in the past.

Yes, I think we can all agree on that.

He's been part of many a Marvel panel that has given info out about upcoming stories. I don't see that as being any different than what happened in this case. Why is one OK and the other not?

john lewis hawk wrote:I'm not reading all of those tweets but I'm on Rich's side. Every so often, there seems to be this big problem with people spoiling comic books. The problem is great stories are great regardless of whether or not you know what happens. How many people out there re-read comics and books or re-watch tv shows and movies? Everybody does this. I'm literally watching a repeat of an episode of Bob's Burgers right now. Is my enjoyment diminished because I knew what was going to happen?

Furthermore, like I mention people re-read great stories or know what the story is of a great story before they read it. I did it with The Killing Joke and I'm sure everyone does. My point is that when creators go after people for revealing spoilers, it's like they're saying that their stories are not good enough to enjoy with knowing what happens in it,

These same situation arise not too long ago with Peter David and an issue of X-Factor. The spoilers made me want to read the issue but David's attitude made it so I didn't.

re reading and spoilers are not even close to the same thing. If something is spoiled for me (without fair warning) the story has been ruined (spoiled.) I can't stand knowing for a fact what is about to happen. For me, the point of a story is not only the journey but the destination. As a reader i want the option to not know what is about to happen.

as a re-reader I have decided - not a website, not a newspaper, not some asshat online - that the journey is worth going through again even knowing how it ends.

I agree, Slott has no room to talk considering who he works for, but if there was a movie, book, tv show, etc that I was thinking about buying a spoiler that basically tells me what the story is keeps me from buying, Bryne stealing, or even borrowing said media. I just don't care anymore.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to start an argument either. The question that ended my post was meant to be rhetorical.
