An old Warren Ellis story about schoolyard shootings is being resurrected

It's been revealed that Vertigo is going to publish a previously unseen story by overrated Warren Ellis and Phil Jiminez called "Shoot" that dealt with schoolyard shootings and was nixed following the Columbine bloodbath in 1999. But if there's anything else about this news that really makes my jaw fall off my face in astonishment, it's what Ellis says about Paul Levitz:
I remember that, at the time, someone telling me that the stance was that Paul Levitz would not release the book so long as he was running DC.
*whistles* Yet this same former editor and publisher, along with Dan DiDio, released the abominable Identity Crisis without a whisper of objection for their mainstream line of books. The irony is just stupefying.

Labels: , , , ,

Levitz is such a putz!

He'll veto the unpublished Hellblazer issue and kick up a fuss about The Boys (before the move to Dynamite), but won't object to creative failures like Identity Crisis,the every crap story that followed and every asinine decision ever made by that manchild DiDio. Traitor!

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.
