Well I bit the bullet and put more money into the hands of the evil, greedy corporations/publishers that are Marvel and DC.
For those that don't know, Marvel and DC both have come under intense fire and scrutiny for their unfair business practices and poor handlings concerning Jack Kirby and his estate and Alan Moore respectively
Bleedingcool.com, or any other comic-based website to get all the dirt, but in general Marvel's failed to give a large amount of credit physically and financially to Kirby's estate for his part in creating half, if not most of the Marvel Universe. The Avengers movie that just came out stands to make millions and even billions for Marvel/Disney, yet the main issue is how Kirby's estate will probably not see a single dime of the profits. Again, you can go to various websites to read the whole story for yourself. Suffice to say Marvel, while maybe technically not in the legal wrong(all that's open to debate) is still wrong on an ethical and moral level. I don't see what it would cost them to perhaps turn over even a small percentage of the massive profits they will be receiving over to his estate, as both a well-deserved thank you, and a way of showing gratitude/appreciation/respect for all of creative work Kirby put into Marvel during his tenure there.
I'm sure if he was still alive, this might not be so big of an issue, but he's not, so that's that.
Again, I urge you if you're interested in all this, to go look it up for yourselves and come to your own conclusions about all this.
While I feel badly about the situation, I have a hard time never buying comics from both publishers all together. While the current high prices and poor content are already doing that for me, I can't just totally stop cold turkey from ever buying another product from either company ever again. That would be both ridiculous and hypocritical of me to even try. Because, hey! There's always the back issues of yesteryear to sustain me when I grow(and have grown over the last few years) weary of the lackluster product that's currently out there. Plus I still love action figures, so I'm fucked right there.
Alright enough with the rant, it's the skits you've all come to see, and boy do I have one for you!
This one's dedicated and due to the suggestions of Ben/David H, so if you don't like it, you feel free to blame him. He wanted to see Batman and Hal fight it out one more time, and by God, I made his little Jewish dreams come true. Wait, am I allowed to say Jewish dreams anymore? I want to politically correct and all. I'm sure Ben/David H will let me know soon(You da' man Ben)
