Marz exploits a Frenchwoman's misfortune...for attacking comics fans who want better

Ron Marz has crossed a line again, this time taking an alarming incident in France and using it to compare Comicsgate supporters to violent men:

And after somebody had the audacity to point out he'd set out to offend those he disagrees with, he said:


I think he's just ensured far less people will be checking out his creator-owned products for starters, and less will be encouraged to try his work on Aspen's Fathom, and Ominous Press publications, where he's currently an editor. In fact, somebody ought to tell Aspen that, if they care about reputation, they should develop social media guidelines, because Marz has just caused them a potential PR disaster with this monstrous assault on the audience, exploiting an innocent woman's terrible experience just so he can make a disgusting comparison with all the comics fans he apparently doesn't want as an audience. I don't know if the criminal who did that is an Islamist, an illegal immigrant or both, but what Marz did practically minimizes the woman's experience along with the felon's own actions.

Of all the troubling statements Marz's made over the past decade since Twitter came into being, this one is by far one of the most dismal. He's already received plenty of well-deserved backlash, and is bound to lead at this point to decreased sales. So unless his publishers want to damage their reputations, they'd better start listing guidelines on social media and make clear he should stick with them. And yet, it may be too late for him, as he's already made clear he's not worried about failure, seeing as his comic projects are bound to fail anyway.

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.
