Constantine Co-Creator Stephen Bissette Trolls DC with Facebook Letter

A post about this on Bleeding Cool invites readers to "read between the lines," but it seems pretty straightforward to us.

Stephen Bissette, who is one of the co-creators of John Constantine and known for being something of a creator rights advocate, posted an open letter to DC Comics on his Facebook wall today:

Dear DC Comics:

How are you this morning? Nice to hear.

Look, I'm the ONLY original Constantine co-creator active online. 

And with CONSTANTINE getting so much attention lately, and me being the only original co-creator online, I'm getting a lot of requests for this and that—interviews. Podcasts. Etc. 

Daily. 

So, in your corporate mind, what should I do? 

Every time you ramp up the Constantine or Swamp Thing whatever, someone at DC apparently resents anything I might say—or so I'm occasionally told—but I have no idea what's going on from your end. 

I mean, if you want me "in the loop," or to shut the hell up, or to behave, or to misbehave, or whatever-it-is-you-want, you really DO know how to reach me. 

Well, anyhoot, I sincerely hope all is well with you, congrats on the spiffy new TV show upcoming, everyone really seems so excited about it, and since all I see out here is all everyone else sees out here, and it begs so many obvious questions, which people then ask me, directly, I just thought you should know what a conundrum all this is. 

And it gets to be more of a quandary daily now. 

PS: I appreciate you have "bigger fish to fry." I mean, your NY offices are fighting winter, while you CA offices are in a major draught. It must be hell. 

Thanks and take care—stay warm, or have a bottle of water (Hydrate! Hydrate!), and nice per usual to hear from you...

Yours,

"Steve" aka Stephen Bissette

 

So yeah, that happened. What did DC do to piss Bissette off? Well, besides being DC, we mean. What did they do specifically, this time? If you know, post it in the comments. If you don't know, make something up. Thanks.
