SDCC: Scott Lobdell Calls His Writing Sad and DepressingAt the DC Comics: Young Justice panel at San Diego Comic Con, DC star writer Scott Lobdell came clean about his disappointing writing in the DCnU.



Dead means dead in comics, so many fans were confused when Scott Lobdell's career was ressurected by the Bob Harras'ing of DC Comics for the DCnU reboot last year. Lobdell, who was a popular writer of such titles as Uncanny X-Men and Generation X. Lobdell's writing, along with the art and writing of his nineties contemporary, Rob Liefeld, comprises about 70% of the entire output of DC Comics at present, so it comes as a huge blow to DC morale that Lobdell has such a low opinion of his own work.

At the DC Comics: Young Justice panel at San Diego Comic today, Lobdell called the zero issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws, due out in September, the "saddest issue he's ever written," which shows that Lobdell continues to set the bar for bad writing higher and higher with each consecutive issue of the abysmal series. He elaborated on the issue, saying that he would be changing the nature of the character Blackfire, Starfire's sister, from a Machiavellian villain to "a caring sister who betrayed Kory," and presumably regrets it. He went on to ponder why he was writing "so many depressing stories these days," admitting that not only was his writing depressing in quality, but that the volume was too high as well.

If only we knew, Scott.

Lobdell also mentioned at the panel that he has not watched the acclaimed Young Justice cartoon, so it is unlikely he will be recieving any inspiration for quality storytelling on Teen Titans or Red Hood and the Outlaws, which is widely regarded to be the worst comic book ever written, in the near future.

One Scott Lobdell-written comic book is sadder than every Joy Division song ever recorded rolled up into one sorrowful dirge.

Yawn. The real Blackfire got there through almost 15 years of proper character development. So don't go claiming that you came up with it first, okay??
