It looks like Mark Waid agrees with former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice on DC's latest super-mega-crossover event, Future's End. Commenting on the series on Twitter, Waid riled fellow creator Dan Jurgens when he called the series "The New 52est New 52 comic E-V-E-R-." Enjoy:
Wow. Only the FCBD and 1st issue in and, already, FUTURES END is the New 52est "New 52" comic E-V-E-R. Wow.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) May 6, 2014
Looks like Waid may be training for the next summer Olympics, as he has a terrific backstroke. Comics' only journalist and bony saltwater fish Tom Spurgeon soon joined the fray:
Patrick Zircher didn't know what to think:
@MarkWaid (reads kind of snarky, kind of very snarky)— Patch Zircher (@PatrickZircher) May 6, 2014
Waid tried to clear things up as vaguely as possible:
But it's no secret Waid isn't a fan of the New 52:
So Waid doesnt like something? Big deal, right? Wrong! You must never say anything negative about a comic book on the internet. It's the Thumper rule.
It kind of petered out after that... OR DID IT?!
Wow. Only one bite in and, already, this plum I'm eating is the plum-iest plum E-V-E-R. Wow.— Mark Waid (@MarkWaid) May 6, 2014
Here we go again...
It will be interesting to see how this ends up. Normally, it's Stephen Wacker getting into a flamewar, with Waid coming in to protect his little buddy. Will Wacker jump in and have Waid's back now? We'll keep you updated if this flares back up.
