And this is why Grant Morrison is not on the internet. Comic "fans" can be so not cool. I thought everyone loved Slott.
I mean I know I never asked Slott any dumb questions and I do enjoy his work in ASM.
Wishing cancer on him? Posting his phone number? SPOILING THE AVENGERS?! Those BASTARDS!
The internet truly makes me sick sometimes. I don't understand the mindset of just insulting someone like that, what the hell does it accomplish? I mean, I'm all for insults directed towards one's family members and threats of bodily harm but dammit only when its in person and you're trying get something done (such as getting through rush hour traffic), not hiding behind a sissy box and the interwebs. Its even more bizarre when its some random celeb like whats her face with the big ass, just imagine how many random insults get hurled at her for no reason other than strong dislike.
Somehow I knew the Scarlet Witch was behind it, in some way.
Perfect humility dispenses with modesty.
When you reach a certain level of success people for some reason feel it us OK to knock someone in personal insensitive ways, these sad people feel achievement that they bring you down and put them in their place. Dan Slott is just lucky he is a writer and not a politician then it would be 20 Tim's worse for him and his family.
I think people tend to dehumanized people they only see on paper or through a TV camera. Worst time in my life was when my dad ran for a political office and all the phone calls and hateful comments made about my dads personal character. People called and threatened us and threw names at my mom and brother. The things people said had very little to do with politics they were just deeply personal, insensitive, and hateful. My dad ran for a state rep position couldn't imagine what it would have been like if he were a congressman or senator
BAD TOUCHSCREEN TYPER
I get that fans are bitter. I am often bitter myself, since a few years.
But nothing can justify being such a dick to creators. Especially to a writer who clearly loves comics and don't do this job only for the paycheck. You may hate his choices, but hating the man and wishing him harm is insane.
The amount of hate spilled on Dan Slott and Joe Q after OMD is a shame for all us comics fans.
Me: Please Marvel, give some spotlight to your 21th century creations instead of killing them every month.
Marvel: Avengers Arena, lol!
Classy as always, Marvel.
So I think Slott has dealt with angry readers before, especially in person.
I know Kevin Nichols through a guy that knows a gal. Small world!
If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.
