So this? Not a comic I’m going to read.
In fact, this might actually be a sign of Armageddon. I’m not saying Eminem doesn’t have talent. I personally enjoy a few songs from his library.
But Punisher?! Good lord, Marvel. What were your executives thinking?! This shouldn’t have even been entertained as a possible source of funding. Gah, I know I’m just giving it more attention than it deserves. The author is well-known for writing well so it won’t be completely awful, I’m sure it won’t be as bad as I’m feeling it would be. The story will even make sense, certainly!
Come on though, Industry. Give folks a chance. Give your consumers a chance to be discerning! I know we’re all in it for the drama and the violence but trust that we can see a good comic when it comes to us!
Trust in your audience. This is just well-paid publicity for Eminem, I get that. His people got with your people and BAM! Part of his comeback. Where’s that artistic integrity? I’m not expecting literature with every issue of every book but we’ve had such endearing stories in the past! Don’t just do what pays, make the art we all have loved from you! Rise above! Deserve to be the industry giants you are!
Vive le comique!
