Mark Waid appears to be in a bad situation in the lawsuit

Richard C. Meyer's lawsuit against Mark Waid for committing tortious interference takes an interesting turn. As stated here, it appears Waid didn't know he was speaking with the brother of the original manager of Antarctic Press:
Also, in a game or textual whispers, it transpires that Mark Waid thought he was speaking and texting with Benn Dunn, rather than Joeming Dunn. And that Joeming Dunn thought he was texting with someone else and stopped when he realised it was Mark Waid. [...]
But that's just a small sampling of how ludicrous Waid's turned out to be in this whole affair. Here's a PDF of the available court deposition, where Waid uses some stupefying language (he calls his supporters "hordes of hell"?!? What was he thinking?) And he even admits he hates conservatives. Very telling.

After checking some of this, all I can say is, Waid's had it in this business. It's time he took a pension and just retired to some suburb where he can write his career biography (not that I'd expect it to be honest or sane, though). It's bound to become a classic case of somebody who was once on top, and plummeted to bottom.

Labels: ,

Mark Waid deserves every negative consequence coming to him over this, and then some. He worked pretty hard to earn the backlash he's getting.

It sounds like Waid is the kid who called out that the Emperor was naked; only instead of realizing the truth, the emperor threw the kid in jail and threatened to do the same to anyone who pointed out his lack of clothes.

Meyer is a toxic personality. He makes money off his toxicity. it serves as clickbait and he relishes it. Whether Waid keeps quiet about it or not, it is still there.

Too bad we cant get back to the days when writers were judged on the stories they write and their entertainment value, rather than on petty feuds with minor youtube personalities and the political positions they take on their own time.

If you read the 'hordes of hell' comment in context, you can see that he is talking about what it must feel like for a publisher to be inundated with angry complaints, that he is not referring to 'his supporters' but more generally to the people who are disgusted by Meyer, and that he is not trying to insult them.

"Meyer is a toxic personality".... congrats, looks like SJWs (or Ward himself) must be following Ward's little problem and ended up here. Ward has a history of out of control anger issues and I can see him and his neo fascist followers believing Meyer was "toxic". For those that don't know, Meyer is the guy who provides daily entertainment for normies using nothing more than his fricken phone to tweek the nose of the arrogant mean spirited leftists now occupying mainstream comics. For that alone he has 100k followers on youtube and his Indygogo project netted him over $400k bucks to write and produce his own comic. More power to you Richard.

Both of them are toxic and should be kept away from the public until they learn to behave themselves.
