The continued deterioration of James Robinson

I can't believe what kind of shock tactic "jokes" and other comments the former writer of Starman is now making on Twitter. For example:



Now never mind the 3rd one, it's the 1st and 2nd that really call for some scrutiny here. When I looked at that 2nd tweet there, I was just simply petrified with horror. How can the guy take the kind of politicized stances he has and expect anybody with common sense to take him seriously if he's going to be such a vulgarian? If I were following him on Twitter, he would have lost me 10 million years ago too. His sick cracks are discouraging me from buying any more of his work or believing that he really respects the DCU. I only own one TPB of Starman - the first one - and these thoughtless blurts of his make me feel less inclined to ever bother checking out the rest. Speaking of which, he informed a reader:


One could wonder if his penchant for making sick jokes like 2 of the 3 tweets above led to less enthusiasm for his past work, not to mention the desecration of Alan Scott he's doing now in the Earth 2 title he's writing. There's always readers out there who'd find his newfound attitude alarming, and could end up feeling discouraged from trying out any of his assignments as a result. Especially people new to comics. In fairness, omnibuses are pretty expensive, and in today's economic climate, many could've given pause based on the price, but there's also Robinson's own color of character to ponder. And for all we know, he may have scuttled the sales based on his personality.

Labels: , ,

Judging from his first tweet, I'll just assume he's drunk, all the time. XD

Which would explain a lot of things, wouldn't it?

Robinson's really gone off his rocker.
