Conway sells out on Marvel creations, and only blames "right" for Oregon takeovers
Backlash is pointless. To new readers, there’s nothing remarkable about black Cap or female Thor. It’s just cool. https://t.co/5KcHxkdFlP— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) December 31, 2015
Oh, that's a good one there. Biggest problem is that it's all flash but no substance. Another is Conway himself - he's pretty much made clear he doesn't care for much of the past body of work he did for the Big Two, or any company, for that matter. And that's hugely disappointing. In that case, why did he bother working for them years before, if he had no faith in what he wrote for them and the hard work he did? What's ironic here is that last year, he was complaining about DC's payment policies and other credits for contributors, a valid issue in itself. But then, he apologized to the top staff when they honestly don't deserve any, and neither does Marvel. What's the point of complaining about how they throw past creators under the bus when his worries are superficial at best?
Besides, how does he know new readers (and there's very few of those today) even find it cool? What if they ultimately find it all dreary?
Next,here's some apparently political conversation he had with a reviewer:
But it depends on the audience. Different audience, way different response. Imagine Trump on a podium in Ferguson. https://t.co/GhyKleVEP5— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) December 31, 2015
It’s the echo chamber effect. They’re in a right wing bubble, don’t know how awful they look to others outside. https://t.co/09udTMVcJJ— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) December 31, 2015
If all your friends are right wing, and all your news comes from right wing propaganda, Trump sounds “normal” https://t.co/09udTMVcJJ— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) December 31, 2015
It’s as if part of the country lives in an alternate reality, a racist-sexist-homophobic Earth-2. Earth Asshole. https://t.co/09udTMVcJJ— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) December 31, 2015
Part of Conway lives in an alternate dimension himself. Apparently, all his news comes from left wing propaganda, and he has no ability to consider how a left-wing news source is capable of saying/doing something dishonest. If he can't come to terms with that, there's no point in attacking right wing sources that may do the same.

Next thing you know, we'll find out he's gloating over the notion that "righties" may be doing something illegal in Oregon, just so he can celebrate right-wing bashing (and look at the hashtags he's using too). Which would make him the opportunist.
So there we have more examples of a guy who has no compass, artistically or politically.
