Why is Kevin Smith still around?

I found this short article in the Press of Atlantic City telling that overrated filmmaker and occasional comics writer Kevin Smith has begun writing another miniseries, Batman: The Widening Gyre.

His work on Daredevil and Green Arrow was mediocre enough, but his work on the Black Cat miniseries, which suffered a horrendous delay for 2 years and was then padded out to boot, was the real disaster: he retconned a rape into Felicia Hardy's background. I hope Smith's lost influence in the comics field since, because a writer of his undeserved standing who injects already gratuitous elements like those into the scripts he's writing is really not someone comicdom needs around.

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.
