When DC Tweets About John Stewart

250px-Greenlantern156Okay, this is a proper “final post of the night”. Off to bed for me. But first, it seems that people have been on Twitter. Regarding a certain killing off of Mr John Stewart, the Green Lantern.



Alex may have seen many unverified reports. And he’s right, there were plenty, from many sites, just repeated what they’d read on Bleeding Cool.

But he knows that the Bleeding Cool initial report and the CBR confirmatory report were most definitely verified. As, by the way, was our subsequent report.

And while Robert Venditti and Van Jensen may not have contemplated killing John Stewart, well no. That job was given to Joshua Hale Fialkov. And that’s why he walked. Since then, things have changed. As Bleeding Cool reported yesterday as well.

This is a fine example of saying things that suggest one thing but mean another. It seems to dismiss rumours as being false, but it doesn’t actually do that at all. It says that the creators have plans for John. Well yes, they do. It doesn’t mean that Josh wasn’t told to kill him off. And it seems to dismiss all reports are unverified, but it doesn’t do that either. In advertising, these are known as “weasel words”, when you say something that suggests one thing but never actually claims it.

John Stewart lives. But only because Fialkov did what he did… and you all did what you all did.
