More creator owned work is not the answer. More REALLY FUCKING GOOD creator owned work is.
Some people, like me, just want a fun job that gives some security. There comes a time in life for some people when you have to make the trade: do you want to take the chance, or do you want to make sure the people you love are taken care of?
I full-well realize that I'm in the minority when it comes to liking the corporate comics, but to look down on them as less creative or unoriginal is cutting yourself off from the things that made comics what they are today. 'Watchmen" might not have existed without the Charlton heroes, after all.
The best point here, though, comes from Jacen:More creator owned work is not the answer. More REALLY FUCKING GOOD creator owned work is.Jacen seems to have traveled across the same convention floor I have over the last few years.There's so much garbage out there, and everyone thinks that their shit is wonderful. It's not.
If you're going to hold creator-owned comics to a rigorous standard, demand that they be great rather than just OK, that's fine with me. But you need to hold your corporate-owned comics to that same standard...
But they're all trying to emulate that. That's where the argument for originality dies.
Also what was with the dramatic music?
And why doesn't Matt Fraction have to give a fuck about Image now? Aren't they still the publishers of Casanova?
It's always felt to me like the editors and partners at Image really enjoy the breadth of their catalog and want it to stay fresh and appealing.
