Writer Who Writes Comics For Adults, Takes Industry To Task For Not Writing For Children

Alex De Campi writes child-friendly comics such as No Mercy, Archie Vs Predator, and Grindhouse.

On Saturday, Alex de Campi took to Twitter to lambast the North American comics market for not appealing to the youth market, specifically ages 4-7.

The writer behind the Grindhouse story "Slay Ride", about a snow-covered West terrorized by child-flaying demons, then continued.

De Campi, the mind behind "Lady Danger: Agent of B.O.O.T.I.," then went on to say.

The writer who had Predator decapitate Jughead with his spine still attached continued.

De Campi, who has a dozen teens killed in No Mercy, then added.

The author of Flesh Feast of the Devil Doll, a Puritan-era demon returns to her old stomping grounds, in Grindhouse continued.

The writer behind the issue of My Little Pony where Pinkie Pie stomped Applejack's head in (I can only imagine, as Zechs won't tell me what happens in MLP), then said.

De Campi's thread went on for awhile, with a lot of great discussion, a lot more than I can run here. But if there's money to be made, it's safe to say that a publisher will corner that market.
