  2. Pretty sure nothing new would ever get written if that were the case. Every story has people who think it's "fucking things up."

  3. Wait, wait... he might be on to something here.

  4. They used to have "Comic Book Police", they were called "Comic Book Editors".

  6. @ Richard J Marcej: I thought it was the Comics code?

  7. @Anonymous: Well, no. The code would only censor or say what was or wasn't appropriate (remember, you could still publish a comic with no Comics Code on it).
    It was up to an editor to make sure the writer or artist didn't "fuck things up".

  9. In Popular Culture, bad comic stories are considered especially heinous. On the Internet, The dedicated detectives of the Special Comics Unit investigate and prosecute the worst offenders. These are their stories.

  12. @Dave

    ...or the Batman (and Robin) from the old Superfriends saturday-morning cartoon. Compared to that, the current Batman isn't so bad.

  13. If we set the bar low enough, the current Batman isn't so bad! Also, this poop sandwich is pretty tasty!

  14. Is it sad I can tell just from this that this dude has just read Batman: The Dark Knight? It features the character find of 2011: ONE FACE.

  15. @Richard J. Marcej: But in this day and age the editors are part of the problem. Who edits the Editors!? I ask you.

  16. Grant Morrison would be serving life in prison right now.

  17. Neal Adams! This is the comic book police! Step away from the writing desk and come out with your hands up!

  18. @Lowkey Liesmith: The plural in "editors" is the problem in a nutshell. There's no experienced professional in charge anymore; instead there's a roomful of cats allowed to herd themselves under the not-too-watchful eye of someone who quietly but vehemently resents having to work in the (sneer) COMIC BOOK BUSINESS.

  19. Put Savage Dragon or Christian Walker on that shit

  20. I think you guys are overreacting.

  21. Easy for you to say, Stan. Some of us don't appear in every Spiderman cartoon, you know.

  22. Apparently he hasn't heard that all of the Comic Book Police committed Suicide after the great Clone Saga Fiasco of the Mid to Late 90's. Clinton disbanded the operation, and turned to an Intern for comfort

  23. I wish there was a comic book police when Maximum Carnage, Onslaught and Extreme Studios happened.

  24. Every now and then you share a good idea.
