... and other news.
It’s generally not like us to be so topical on our discussion shows, but the Gary Friedrich matter and the announcement of Before Watchmen brought out some pretty ripe opinions. I think everyone who reads comics and/or is interested in them as a hobby has at least heard about both situations.
Marvel Comics counter-suing Gary for $17K is just plain sad to hear (although for the most part, we get it). And DC finally pulling the trigger on new Watchmen stories after 26 years sounds abysmal. Not to mention the whole "Screw Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons! We're gonna retain this IP at all costs" attitude.
But hey, who knows? Dan DiDio and company might come up with some fun stuff. I’ll never know because I won’t be reading it. Not sure any of us will. So, there you go!
Hope you enjoy the jaw-jackin'. We did.
