2 disgraced former DC contributors actually start their own publisher

Remember Eddie Berganza and Eric Esquivel, the editor and the writer who both were the subject of sexual misconduct scandals that led to their dismissal from DC and cancellation of the latter's Vertigo title, Border Town? Turns out, as this item from Bleeding Cool announces, they're actually starting their own independent publisher. It also claims:
...Since then, Berganza has been in Mexico, buildin homes for the homeless and working as a teacher. Including teaching comics classes.
Is this supposed to be his idea of virtue-signaling? He certainly doesn't belong in a school teaching the art forms, and whoever hired him there should be fired. Yet, it's revealed that:
Today, Esquivel tweeted the following, that he and Berganza would be working on a comics project together, with artist Jocelyn Ojeda, who Berganza recruited from his comics classes, and that their Kickstarter would begin on March 1st.

Anybody foolish enough to contribute to their crowdfunding campaign needs to get their head examined. Including the following:
I spoke to Esquivel earlier today who wished to let his earlier statements stand, but asked that people leave the artist, Jocelyn Ojeda “out of the hazing” – though he wanted people to know that she was fully aware of Berganza and Esquivel’s history. [...]
Well this is being idiotic. They were booted over serious accusations and allegations, yet she's willing to work with them? Additionally troubling is that, according to one of the respondents to the Twitter post:

Sounds pretty fishy alright. Are they trying to brew up a scam and con people to raise cash they don't deserve? Not good. All concerned should stay away from whatever fundraiser they're running and not waste a penny on these con artists. They don't belong in the medium, and they're practically just why it's been brought down to such dismal levels.

  • 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.
