Kirbys and Karadashians.

Me, Frequently:

‘The reason I don’t buy Marvel or DC comics is that I don’t want to reward them for exploiting the creations of Jack Kirby, Chris Claremont,Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster. Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Steve Ditko, Bill Finger and scores of others via the mediums of comics, film, video games etc whilst not financially remunerating them and giving them the credit they deserve. I can’t understand how an audience built on superheroes can be so cold as to totally ignore the contributions of these men and happily buy Marvel and DC’s output or worse, create them

. It’s not good enough to have nice magazines and Omnibus Editions saying how legendary these people were after they die. We have to organize, boycott, take actual action and prove ourselves to be a bit more than stupid habit junkies that will buy anything with Batman or Wolverine on the cover. I realise this may mean you have breaks in your collection. I think it’s 2012, we all have access to the internet and can look up this history. There is no excuse for ignorance anymore. You cannot pretend you aren’t contributing to Marvel and DC keeping creators in court. How about we try to think of something beyond our own entertainment for a change?’

Some bloke we don’t like to think about whilst watching our Avengers and X-men:1st Class DVDs…

Crickets make cricket noises. Awkward looks are given. Everyone promises to donate a few quid to The Hero Initiative when they get a chance. Then they go and watch the Avengers and Batman in the cinema. Irony who?

Kim Karadashian comic to be published via Bluewater:

The MotherFucking Anti-Christ, yesterday.

‘OHMIGOD, END OF WORLD! END OF THE MEDIUM! NOW MY RAGE IS OUTED! JUSTICE! FIGHT THE POWER! HOW DARE SOMEONE I DON’T LIKE BE PAID FOR THE USE OF THEIR LIKENESS? MAYBE, IF WE RISE AS ONE, OUR COMMUNITY WILL BE ABLE TO SURPRESS THIS, CLEARLY THE WORST COMIC TO EVER BE PRINTED AS EVERY SINGLE THING THAT SHIPS MUST CONFORM TO MY WHIMS AND DESIRES! RISE UP!

Dear The Comics Community, I am happy to be away from you.

Fuck You.

  1. A Kim whatsit comic is the least of the issues with Bluewater, AFAIK.
