Don't let the door hit you in your fat ass on the way out, Dan Slott. I'll pack you a bag, even.
While you're making moving plans, maybe you should hand over your cush writing gig to someone who might need a leg up and would appreciate it more? Spread the wealth around a bit, as Obama's fond of saying. You've had a long, successful run in the biz already -- it's only fair, after all.
No? Well then shut the fuck up, and take President Kardashian's impending ass-whooping like a man.
The Obama thing happened because he gave an interview to a British paper saying he was a big Spidey (and Conan) fan and had quoted the character more than once. All candidates should do the same.
(Really you are a joke at this point. It's probably kinda smart that you're afraid to post this nonsense under your real name.)
So, you're saying that the known political leanings of most Marvel writers and editors (and really, most people working with any form of art anywhere in the world, notoriously left-leaning) and the fact that this was an obvious chance of making money had nothing to do with it?
Don't you know that Marvel only ever does things for the purest of motives? The whole variant cover phenomenon, for example, started as a way to give fans a choice... and (in the case of blank variants) a handy place to get sketches made.
They were shocked (shocked!) that it increased sales. It never even occurred to them.
