    Are you seriously suggesting that boycotts are fundamentally wrong because they might dissuade creative people from expressing themselves? Can you name me one point in human history where that's...

    No, it's not different, it's your choice. That's the point.

    I think you're missing the point of boycotts. They aren't the "lazy" answer, they are the economic answer.

    Few of us have any real power. In fact, in today's society, what power we do have is...

    What a ridiculous statement. Of course OSC has the right to express his opinion, a right that he's exercised on many occasions. But with that right also comes the responsibility of accepting the...

    Sorry, but that's an incredibly naive statement. The IP farm that Disney bought is clearly based on characters that have already been created and exist in the marketplace. How many characters created...

    I don't disagree with you. The creators of the books in question do care very much. No argument. But my point is that Marvel is now tied to a larger entity who sees the publishing arm of Marvel as...

    I'm sure that the people you mention do care about whether or not a book sells. Very much so. But my point is that Marvel and DC aren't stand-alone companies anymore. Their parent organizations have...

    But Brian, you're one of the small minority of people who know who Vibe is and understand his history. How many members of the general public even know the character's name, let alone his connection...

    Did Captain America #611 Bother Anyone Else?

    Although I'm quickly losing interest in "BuckyCap," and await the inevitable return of Steve Rogers to his original role, I've been basically enjoying Brubaker's run on this title. But one of the...

    Invincible Iron Man Annual #1 *Spoilers*

    Don't bother. It's a steaming pile of crap; a nonsensical story wrapped up in some of the ugliest and most amateurish art I can ever remember seeing. I not only want my money back, but the time I...

    The Death of the New Gods was nothing but a sick, twisted snuff comic, with no more to recommend it than the grotesque films it was based on. There was no reason to produce this abyssmal mini-series,...
