I hate that we have to see comics drop to these lows to sell their issues
Same here in regards to the Spider-man variant/return of the spectator thing. Marvel's a big company with movies coming our all the time. Sad they can't rely on quality to sell in volume.
But I don't get your criticizm of Erik Larsen. It makes sense giving the location of the story. Besides, if anything, the Savage Dragon might sell a little more based on this attention.
Would it have been okay if Larsen was conservative and had McCain on the cover?
You had to just see how Erik talked to people over at Newsarama during the election. he was way up Obama's political rear as well as pushing his own views onto people.
No, I would not want any President used in this way. It is CHEAP and pathetic.
Erik loves to bash but WATCH OUT!! If ever he feels attacked, he will sulk and cry.
I have hoped for nothing but bad luck for savage dragon since he acted the way he did in a very public forum.
In reality, it was ignorant for Erik to think that Marvel wouldn't do this on a much bigger scale. Of course, the scale is bigger because there is a slight difference between Spider-Man and Savage Dragon.
What DC did with their political book was much more American and far more polite to the readers.
