This DC editor does not belong in the company any more than DiDio does

Andy Khouri, an editor at DC working on the revived Vertigo line, is a former Comics Alliance writer who was one of the worst leftists to run that now defunct site. Ethan Van Sciver thoughtfully spoke out against him, following this insult-to-the-audience message Khouri wrote:

Calling the audience villains is the wrong way to go, and will only ensure nobody wants to buy his catastrophous offerings under the Vertigo banner, which should be retired already, just as he should be dismissed from the payroll. After he wrote this very alienating message, van Sciver made the following points:

The Rodriguez scandal is mentioned here, and the Esquivel scandal over here. As far as I know, even Khouri never apologized for his own reprehensible conduct, and it doesn't take a genius to figure he's only in the job for the money.

Indeed, Khouri is one of the worst choices made by the higher ups like DiDio and Harras to work for them. But, that they'd hire Khouri to start with should give an idea where they stand themselves. So the question now is, will they get rid of this undeserving, sorry excuse for a comics "fan"? The sad answer so far is "no". They're well aware of his political leanings, and that's enough for them to keep such a disgrace around, even at the expense of their sales, which continue to plummet. For now, the audience can vote with their wallets and avoid his atrocious "products" at DC, which were clearly intended as nothing more than a vent for his own extreme leftist politics. And let's not forget DiDio, another reason why to avoid DC at all costs so long as he remains.

Do you honestly think rightists are above being wrong or being corruptible to other humans?

How do you feel about Van Sciver's online persona and remarks?

Van Sciver and Johns ruined Green Lantern with their art and writing respectively. You don't like Johns so why are you listening to Van Sciver?

Don't worry, I'm still not very fond of the majority of products van Sciver worked on, and definitely not anything he did with Johns, who as a writer is truly awful. It's because van Sciver's since left DC and is willing to speak out against the creators who threw him under the bus that I'm willing to give him some credit for pointing out some of the things that went wrong there. But indeed, it won't change the fact he was working with some of the most pretentious writers ever to litter mainstream superhero comics, including at Marvel.

What about some of Van Sciver's own sins like his stupidly realistic art or the fact that he draws the worst excuses for the undead people have ever seen?

"Do you honestly think rightists are above being wrong or being corruptible to other humans?"

Nice whataboutisnm. No, no one's ever said that. To any degree. But because those on the right may do it too somehow means that these people aren't in the wrong? Both would be terrible.

Keep shifting th blame to keep yourself comfortable, but it won't work.

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.
