Comics aren’t movies.
If you try to eliminate everything you can’t do in movies — captions, thought balloons — in writing comics, that’s a legitimate choice, but it’s not an inherent virtue.
Comics are words and pictures together, not pictures with words as a necessary evil.
Comicsgate is a hate group.

Some of the online reaction to what’s going on at DC makes me think of Ace the Bat-Hound again.
If you’re personally affected by the layoff, my full sympathies, and you won’t care about this. But for others...

“I wasn’t mocking a cancer patient on that video where I’m laughing at jokes about a cancer patient, I was mocking a trans person! Stop being mean to me!” is a weird, weird line of defense.
I hope the news about DC Comics layoffs today is not as bad as it sounds, and that things go as well for everyone there as they possibly can.
I saw a comment earlier today from someone who said that modern comics are so wordy they make classic Chris Claremont look like a mime, and I’m wondering what the hell books they’re reading.
The upshot of all this is — if you’re trying to analyze a big thing, you have to look at the big picture, not try to take one piece of it and find the answers within that one piece.
It’s a big thing. It had reasons on the big-thing level.
And Ace is a good dog. They all are.
Pro tip: When a large corporation lays off over 600 people across multiple divisions, it’s because of things that happened at the large corporation level, not because of comic book sales in one of the smaller divisions.

The world of things you’re interested in is affected by the larger world, and if you only look at the stuff you’re interested in as if it exists in a vacuum, you won’t understand why things happen in it.

So apparently, there’s a comics “publisher” that has its editor seek out creative talent, make deals with them, and then when the artwork comes in, the publisher says that their deal was with a "third party,” and as such is void, and the publisher won’t pay that much.
I wonder if she realizes that this would advantage those who have relationships that avoid marriage, thus incentivizing The Destruction of the Traditional Nuclear Family?

Holy shit. What an incredible loss for all of us. His family and friends most of all, but the world, too. twitter.com/chadwickbosema…..
So they offer a replacement — much worse — deal, and the artist needs to take it if they want to get paid anything at all.
So the long and short of it is: Don’t work for Terrific Productions, or whatever they’re calling themselves at the moment.

It’s always…something…to see self-appointed experts declaring that layoffs at a media company during a pandemic and after a botched streaming-channel rollout must be all about comic book content.
All part of their argument that comics should be more like they were in the...
