In which I offer a theory to account for the not-really recent phenomenon.
Wow, this didn't show up on my radar until now. The name is Tom Brevoort, Bill, and it's astonishingly self-delusional that you'd write a whole column about bullying in the comic book industry in which you'd take a bunch of cheap shots but didn't have the backbone to actually attach my name to them. But that's fine, you do you, it's all good.
Oh, and as long as I'm correcting things, Jim Shooter was hired by Mort Weisinger in 1966, and so if anybody was speaking about him in the way you describe, it would have been Mort. Jim later worked for both Murray and Julie in the 1970s, but by that time he was an adult, and so your anecdote doesn't really apply to them.
Sorry I know it’s out of conversation but don’t hang me dry pls🥺
About the plot I really got some convene blood twist,but about that you have too take a risk and give a space,unlike what happened with the writers of “The Wolf among us” video game.
I’m an official Saudi author.
And I’d like too play bigB that would be a lot for me I’m big fan!!!
Mister bill how can I contact you I got ideas about a life action series about fables or the wolf among us my personal email email@example.com. I really hope too see your great work at the small screen!
You're partly correct, the other part being that this younger generation seems to believe, as I assume they've been taught by somepeoplesomewhere, that they have an unshakeable moral authority that transcends mere opinion. It is absolute, which makes them absolutely right, and "you," not just wrong but any number of pejoratives.
You are no wrong, Bill. If anything, comic pros became audacious, toxic, anything but people working for...well, they suit very well for the companies they work for.
Everything seems so keen politics, if you disagree, you're hateful bigot and Nazi.
Btw Bill, why you tried to cancel Dave Sim once? He is totally free on his politics, even if some may disagree with him.
You ain't wrong.
The one I hear about the most that sort of surprised me is John Byrne. But now that I think about it, he was probably shit on by so many dim-witted editors early on that he developed intense antipathy towards his own fans. Sad, because his work is loved so much, but anyone who has met him has a bad story to tell.
So at the height of Fables you might have almost, but did not, qualify as a ‘300-pound gorilla’? Jesus, what does it take?
