Astonishing X-Men’s Marjorie Liu Praises Way’s Thunderbolts

This really happened, we din't make it up

Actual female comic book writer and Marvel’s version of Gail Simone, Marjorie Liu, finally showed some cracks in her judgment this morning when she praised universally panned Thunderbolts by Daniel Way as “neck and neck with Saga” in terms of quality.

There is no joke here, this actually happened:

 

Thunderbolts, a book so bad even Newsarama couldn’t fellate it, might seem like an odd choice for a celebrated writer to put at the top of her reading list, and that's because it is!  This revelation does not diminish Liu’s work, but does call into question her tastes and influences, and this writer is concerned about the quality of her work moving forward if Way’s Thunderbolts is a comic she will eventually emulate.

All that being said, you should be reading Astonishing X-Men, it’s damn good.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
