Mark Waid is being accused of getting publishers to drop the Jawbreakers comic that the Diversity and Comics guy is doing.

So much drama for a 90's riff snoozefest of a comic.

Which he quantifiably did. These hard leftists need to learn you can't ruin people's livelihoods simply because you disagree with them and maybe you're in a position of power. That's against the law.

Sad. I love Mark Waid as a writer. I still love his work. But he can't be doing this.

^^^

That really depends on what Mark Waid actually said to Antarctic Press. If the claims he made are provably true then surely it is not defamation. Nor can you blame a company for not wanting to be associated with someone who could bring them into disrepute.

Didn't AP drop Jawbreakers due to Meyer releasing to his fan base which comic book store wouldn't take in his comic, and the fan base started to harass those stores?
