Mark Waid Threatens To Have Civil Conversation With Diversity & Comics

It could get downright courteous.

If I had to describe Mark Waid in one word "civil" doesn't immediately jump to mind. But the writer has plans for a civil conversation with Richard C. Meyer, also known as Diversity & Comics. He took to Facebook to make the announcement.

"I'll be having a civil conversation with Richard and others next week after Baltimore, for those of you hanging on to my every word tonight.

... I don't know what can come out of a conversation, and I'm not fooling myself into thinking that the industry is in store for a Comics Lovefest anytime soon, but I think we're all agreed that hatred and rage (speaking as an occasional rager when I lose my cool) have reached the point where no one is being served and nothing is improving.

'night, folks. See you in Baltimore. Which, despite what you may have heard, is not a threat."

The Outhouse wishes them the best of outcomes and hopes that neither party throws telephones at the other's head.
