Judd Winick and Brad Meltzer pander to LGBT beliefs

For Valentine's Day, Judd Winick did some sleazy pandering to gay and lesbian beliefs by posting pictures of action figures to look like same-sex couples, and Brad Meltzer backed him up:


It's not the first time Winick, who left mainstream writing for DC and Marvel at least a year ago, did this. Back in 2001, he was one of the earliest writers at the turn of the century who shoved LGBT propaganda down everyone's throats in Green Lantern. He also threw some into his take on DC's Outsiders in 2006, and may have done it in Marvel's Exiles too.

Aside from the galling PC beliefs Winick and Meltzer have, what's also disturbing is the chummy friendship the former has with the latter. Other than Winick, I haven't seen many other comics writers and artists associating themselves with Meltzer like he does, and if they do reference Meltzer, it's usually very sparingly.

I take this as a sign that even the most leftist of writers in the medium realize the embarrassment that could result from associating themselves with a writer who not only penned one of the most repellent miniseries in the history of comics, Identity Crisis, he's never apologized for it to date either. Indeed, supporting his works can give people offended by IC's nasty, one-sided view ammunition to use against them, and those who keep their distance from Meltzer are doing themselves a favor by avoiding him.

Winick, however, is a most unusual case. What exactly is his excuse for being friendly with such an awful novelist? Maybe the fact that he was a co-writer on at least one event book that followed it, Countdown to Infinite Crisis? He's not a member of the modern inner circle at DC, so it sure is weird what he sees in Meltzer. At least Winick's no longer working for the mainstream companies, so he's not too much of a concern.
