Steve Ditko's Toyland

A contributor to Big Hollywood presents an essay veteran artist Steve Ditko of Spider-Man fame has written called "Toyland", which focuses on how popular culture, comics included, have been hijacked by the creatively bankrupt and morally dishonest. One of the examples he cites here is one of Joe Quesada's blabberings from 3 years ago:
“Asked point blank by a fan if things in the Marvel Universe will ever go back to normal after being ‘screwed up’ by House of M and Civil War, Joe Quesada said, ‘These toys are meant to be broken. If we just told stories that kept the status quo, nobody would be in this room, and I’d be out of a job. They’re meant to be thrown against a wall, smashed together, and built back up again.’” (“Baltimore 06: Cup o Joe”, Newsarama.com, 10 September 2006.)
That shows how he's never had any respect for what he was entrusted with to begin with, and that's why it'd be better not to give Quesada an audience anymore. I'd recommend that at the next Baltimore convention, all concerned should stay away from any panel discussion he gives and leave the hall empty.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
