Would this advice be aimed at leftist creators?

Since I sometimes pay attention to what writer Jim Zub goes about saying, I noticed he posted this: I have no idea what this is about, or comes in response to. Obviously, I can only guess. What I do know is that, if it had anything to do with people like Richard Meyer, then any and all PC advocates in the industry who opposed him, openly or otherwise, shouldn't have done that if they really had such a problem with his commentary on venomous politics flooding the mainstream US industry. It's thanks in part to their antagonism that Meyer made as much crowdfunding dough as he did for his Jawbreakers GN, yet they refused to come to terms with this? Why are they never able to consider?

It's also possible he might be referring to Stephanie Cooke, who's also a Canadian resident as he is, and apart from her membership in the Whisper Network, is otherwise a nobody with only a handful of writings to show for herself, which should all be boycotted. Somebody like her, who whines about Boom Studios crowdfunding a Power Rangers comic when she has a criminal charge in Minnesota, is not somebody to be provided with anything Zub speaks of.

Zub also had more to say that's worth noting, responding to a post by writer Bryan Edward Hill: Very true. Though considering how jarringly violent Game of Thrones is, I'd rather not use that as an example, since it's pretty close to the overused horror genre itself. Maybe too close. Here's some more: Yes, so long as you do it well, then it doesn't even matter if it's "unoriginal", so long as the end result is entertaining. And it should be. Nor should it matter whether a superhero tale has a character flawed to the brim, or adversaries with the most ultra-elaborate powers. What matters, again, is the merit in how well written any of this is. Because it's possible to write a story with flawed heroes and ultra-powerful villains that turns out to be extremely boring, and sloppily written because the writers have no clue how to combine all that together into excitement, let alone something that can make you think. Which certainly describes the chaotic situation today at the Big Two.

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.
