    Default Comic Book Fans are nuts

    Steve Wacker has left DC to go to Marvel and people over at Newsarama are calling him a traitor and that he should have put his life on hold for 7 more months and 52 ends.

    It's kind of weird how people get so partisan about the big Two.
    For-Real-True is only true now.

    Story-True is true forever.

    You should be good because in hell there is only customer service positions to be filled, and in heaven, you get to make the calls.

    If he did, it may make him more likeable though.

    I have found that Newsarama's whole point of existence is for fans of DC to bitch about Marvel.

    Now I supposed the same could be said about Marvel fans bitching about DC, but the few threads I have read there have all been Marvel, so I wouldn't know.

    I think my favorite summation of Newsarama was that it was the same ten people saying the same ten things.

    Steve's a great editor...I'm sorry DC has lost him, but I wish him every success at Marvel.

    Well, you can work with him again when you work for Marvel and start writing Spider-Man!

    my favorite post so far, though, is by Mark Waid:

    I speak for all the creators involved with 52 when I say that Steve is one of the best, most professional and most talented editors we've ever worked with, and we will miss him immensely. His contribution to this series cannot be understated. Leaving was not an easy decision for him to make, but he has earned from us our support in whatever he does, and DC's loss is Marvel's gain.

    Steve's professionalism is not up for debate in this forum, and to throw around a claim like that based on what little you know about comics, the industry, and life in general just makes you look like an idiot and makes Grant, Geoff, Greg and me eager to track you down and "visit" with you in a Jay and Silent Bob sort of way. Steve is a pro through and through. End of debate.
    Comic Book fans are nuts, but the writers are nuttier.

    And this does nothing to dispell my theory Mark Waid is Gail Simone in drag.
