We did this to Al Ewing. So I guess now it’s Ales Kot‘s turn.

Congratulations Ales! But is this the same Ales who also tweeted;

 

 

Yes, yes he did. And he wrote this open letter;

Open Letter To Marvel Comics Regarding SOPA, And A Call To Fans And Creators

“Creators – if we won’t stand up and say “This is wrong.”, we might, sooner or later, become collateral damage. SOPA is designed to exchange freedom of every US citizen for profit – to use comics terminology, it’s not quite the Anti-Life equation, but it’s definitely one of its chief elements.

You have the power to change things, or at least create a future that won’t be shadowed by a recollection of doing “wrong things for the right reason” – the bane of human decency. Supporting SOPA is ethically wrong and it can significantly damage your — and your children’s – lives.

This is why I, effective immediately, stop buying all Marvel products.

Remember SOPA? The attempted Stop Online Piracy Act that Marvel actively supported. So do we. Possibly Ales Kot may have forgotten, when that Marvel cheque dropped on his doormat.

Still, it made for some good promotion at the time. And, I suppose, writing for Marvel Comics isn’t technically buying Marvel products. You never know, he may even get some comps…

UPDATE: He’s just tweeted;

There you go… but, you know, SOPA may have died, but Marvel still support it

But either way, congratulations Ales! We also look forward to reading Zero #1 from Image next week…
