What's all the fuss about?

When an internet message board troll who has practically made Didio-bashing a profession gets written into a DC Comics issue to be beaten and embarrassed, I think the people who published that product should be more ashamed than the target.

Honestly.

"Harold Winer".

Who goes on to become "Herald".

A shot at a message board poster who obsesses over D-level and lesser characters on the 'net, with the user name of Herald.

Who happens to be black just like the character in the book.

Who has gotten into arguments with DC Comics creators and had one say that he is well known in the DC offices, where he is regularly laughed at.

Sadly, if you remove this thinly veiled shot at a reader from the equation, the writing involved in making this "Harold Winer" character is even worse. But the thought process behind actually using 5 pages (and possibly more to come) to take a shot at a hater is just impossible for me to come to grips with.

We want to argue that the online fan presence is a vocal minority, right? I've actually started to embrace that idea more over the last year. But when members within that group can have such an effect on you that you have to devote pages to taking them down? Makes me wonder how much the people behind the scenes believe it.

Seriously, how pathetic and immature is that? This is just like Joe Quesada inventing a Spider-Man villain called Dr. Box who tries to shrink Spider-Man's penis.

Man, now I totally want to see Land try his hand at furry art.

Just to see what happens.

I'd buy an issue. *nods*

Heck, having it be a furry would mean he wouldn't have to trace it, making his art better--like what happened recently with Worlock in New Mutants.
