But they don't you're delusional. You give conspiracy obsessed crackpots a bad name. Can I be a mod for just this thread? I would like to edit his posts and fire comic book writers.

Yoni, you're a creative guy. But there's no way you could edit his posts to make them funnier or more entertaining than they already are.

Robert Kirkman is a close personal friend. In fact he is next to me right now: he is detailing the success of his plan to destroy Vertigo by persuading Geoff Johns to fire Scott Snyder, Karen Berger, Rob Liefeld and Alan Moore. Fiendish, I thin kyou'll agree.

What about the other Vertigo news? That they are trying to re-tool themselves as a sci fi imprint, and Gail Simone is going to be spear-heading a new sci fi anthology book there with.....Damon Lindelof!

Lindelof doesn't bode well for Vertigo either.

Lindelof works on TV. And so does... Robert Kirkman! Coincidence? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Kirkman went to Marvel, failed marvelously, then ran away with his tail between his legs and a chip on his shoulder.



He didn't leave Marvel because he failed - he left Marvel because they refused to give him one of the big books (spefifically Ultimate Spider-Man). I can't help but wonder if he'd bided his time, joined the Brand New Day cycle of writers, he'd probably have a Jeff Parker level gig at Marvel, which is exactly the level at which I rate him.

This news is so big, ComicsAlliance actually published a same-day news story about it.

Seismic change in the industry.

Ah. Mine was my punk rock stage name from when I was in a band called Terroristic Threats. It's customary to give yourself a stupid fake last name related to the band name. I've used it ever since.

The last time a creator went on "hiatus" it was Dustin Nguyen on Wildcats, and he never came back. This is as soft a cancellation as you can get, because Johns hates Vertigo, but doesn;'t want to hurt Snyder's feelings that the book failed.


Failed? It sells 15k an issue, which is positively a bestseller by Vertigo standards and DC obviously feels comfortable releasing a number of ancillary series. Scalped was doing like 6k by the end and that got to complete its run.
