But Fraction did Hawkeye, which almost forgives his sins against The Punisher.anarky wrote:I am to Scott Snyder as you are to Matt Fraction, DB. The guy is a fucking genius when doing his own creator-owned stuff. But put him on my favorite character [Batman/Punisher], and he churns out the most ridiculous bullshit I've ever seen and I want to chop off his hands and tongue so he has no choice but to stop. (Hell, I could say the same for Grant Morrison, but at least I have to admire that guy's long-term master plan and technique when he's abusing the fuck out of Batman. Snyder's clearly making up shit as he goes along, trying to make as big a mark as possible, and both Damian and Zur-En-Arrh make more sense than Bruce's secret undead supercriminal brother or an immortal Joker. Joker being immortal is just fucking lazy.)
You guys sound like the right wingers who swear that Obama is trying to destroy America.anarky wrote:I'm with JJ: Warner is trying to get completely out of the comic book business and keep the IP's. Rather than piss off everyone by axing DC Comics entirely, they're pulling more and more shit to chase people away so they can say, "Well, no one buys them anymore."
This controversy is just stupid. I thought it was a great homage to The Killing Joke. Besides all the sexual assault stuff in TKJ was implied, possibly, depending on how you read between the panels - just like Batman killing Joker at the end.anarky wrote:Am I an insensitive, arrogant chauvinist for thinking DC is a bunch of pussies for pulling the Batgirl Killing Joke homage cover?
And there was no fucking sexual assault in that book beyond Barbara and Jim getting stripped naked. Joker doesn't think that way. He was far more concerned with undermining Jim's sanity than anything else.
