Who the fuck gets two goodbye articles?
There was nothing to report Monday evening, October 31, as longtime Outhouse ace reporter Jude Terror published his final article for the site.
For a brief moment, Axel Alonso wasn't dodging criticism in a CBR fluff interview. Tom Brevoort, Brian Bendis, and Dan Slott were not berating fans about canceled books, spoilers, or "not understanding how comics work." Frank Cho wasn't trolling critics with "outrage" drawings. At least not for the past ten minutes. As far as we know.
The industry was still a cesspool of discrimination, harassment, and general dysfunction, but that goes without saying.
No one was fighting on Twitter. No website claimed to have an "EXXXCLUSIVE" on officially sanctioned preview artwork. The standard price of comics was holding steady at $4.99. Wolverine was still dead, and DC hadn't done something stupid in 81 days - not their longest time on record, but formidable enough effort, I think we all agree.
Somewhere out there, an unpaid intern by the name of Vlad Kozinkerov was sound asleep, his belly full, no work to be done until morning. "Mr. Didio told me, Vlad, take night off and get pizza on me," he said, a glimmer of contentment in his eyes. "So that is what I do."
It was quiet.
A little too quiet.
It wouldn't last forever, of course.
Then again, nothing does.
