Apparently the plot thickens...

...From what I can tell, the outrage began about five days ago from this Tumblr blog Weiner Soldier, a site “living a rick remender hate life.” The site generally is dedicated to how Remender ruined comics for Jackie, a 26 year old that thinks “marvel comics has ruined (their) life.” How has he done so?

...Unfortunately, the false info made it’s way to the Examiner, a bastion of bad reporting, and that only threw more fuel to the fire. Add in the fact the one committing the “act” is African American, and now you have racial overtones to boot. On top of that, “facts” like sales figures are thrown around in a vacuum and context is left out, like the normal attrition in sales for ongoing comic book series. Don’t let “facts” get in your way people! We’ve got some raging to do!


So Jackie, the douchenozzle who initially spread the misinformation, commented on that article.

Hi, I’m that Jackie. How dare you a) link to my personal blog, and b) provide location information? A link to my twitter means linking to my likeness. This is unacceptable.


I guess they doesn't like being called out on their bullshit. It's okay to try and start a campaign to get someone fired by lying about their work, but, for the LOVE OF GOD, don't link to their public profile.

Also, if you need another reason to like Mark Brooks or want to see "Uncle Rich" go at it with someone, here ya go. 8)

Like always, there's more at the links.

This is like that firecolbert social justice rampage.
Even after things are cleared up and pretty much everyone knows the whole story, the crusader accepts no fault and blames everyone else for... something.

I understand the need to fight injustice, point out and correct wrongs and try to make the world a better place. But the internet's "Hashtag Activist" are going to keep crying wolf and/or being being unreasonableand, eventually, people are just going to stop listening to them.

I wish this were true, but people always seem to pay more attention to the emotive screed than the reasoned discussion.

I still find it funny that the dude (?) got pissed when the article linked him to his slander.

there have always been activists campaigning against entertainment / art, just because you were't always aware of it doesn't mean it wasn't t there. Technology just makes it easier to find

It feels very "leave Britney ALONE!" but, somehow more pathetic?

I can get behind this hashtag...because Remender is a terrible writer. I am mystified at this current crop of "talent" (Remender, Fraction, Gillen, Hickman) that gets pushed to the forefront while the talented folks (Parker, Gage, Pak) can't seem to catch a break.

I can't believe you'd include Pak in that list.

Considering Sam used to be a street-pimp back in the day, I'd say Remender was just using proper characterization, either way. No need to cry over spilled piss.
