About That Cyclops News 


Since it’s already come up on Twitter, we want to take a minute to address Sunday’s announcementthat writer Greg Rucka will be leaving Cyclopsafter issue five.

If you’ve been following this podcast–or Rachelelsewhere–for any length of time, you know that we love Greg, we love Cyclops, and we love Greg’s work on the Cyclops ongoing. We are of course sorry to see him leave–but we absolutely support his decision.

More, we are so glad to have seen one of our favorite writers (and human beings) set the tone and bar for a title that’s come to mean a lot to both of us. We’re looking forward to reading the remaining three issues of his run–and we fervently hope oncoming writer John Layman will continue in the same spirit.

We also want to take this opportunity to address something that’s likely to come up again as we delve into more series and creators come and go:

As far as we are concerned, it is never, ever cool to hassle or guilt-trip a creator for leaving a company-owned book, and–assuming they’ve not been disclosed publicly–their reasons for doing so are nobody else’s business.

Some of the discretion we choose to exercise here is a matter of professional courtesy or necessity–we’re both comics-industry professionals, and one of us is an employee at a publisher. Mostly, though, it’s a matter of basic human decency. Comics creators arepeople, and it’s important to us to respect their personal/professional boundaries, just as we want and expect others to respect ours. Gossip and speculation about other people’s intentions are really, really not welcome here.

Greg is a friend, so in this case it’s a little more personal than usual–but as far as we’re concerned, that’s a hard line, one we’ll be both observing in the podcast and enforcing in the comments.

TL;DR – If you want to complain about Greg Rucka leaving Cyclops or speculate about his reasons for doing so, you need to take that shit elsewhere.

Smart talk from our arch love rivals over at Rachel & Miles Xplain The X-Men.

Totally, totally beautiful.



Injustice Gods Among Us - Year Two #15


God out of all the Injustice stuff, the byplay between Harley and Dinah are pure gold.

Not reading any DC books at the moment, but every time Harley/Dinah pages find their way in front of my eyes, I think they’re pretty much great. Who wrote/drew this?

Here’s The Truth About Stan Lee’s Legacy 

"I don’t think there could be a more complicated subject to tackle in a single column than this one, because as an industry and as an art form, I think we all have a lot of complicated feelings about Stan Lee…"

Really nice, balanced piece.

By which we mean it totes confirms Nick’s bias.
