Comic Creators React To Reaction To Action Comics #900

Comic Creators React To Reaction To Action Comics #900So Bleeding Cool has been talking a lot about this story today in which Superman has revealed himself to be a treasonous lily livered popinjay who might as well be French. But what about the comic creators? Does no one ever think about them?

Dan Lawlis: Is there any doubt the comic book industry is dominated by Godless anti-American leftwing extremists? No. And this is exactly why I don't miss working in the comic book field.

Ethan Van Sciver: I just recommend a letter writing campaign, now that DC Comics has letters columns again, demanding to see Superman carrying an American flag into space again. Let the editors know it matters to you that Superman remains an American icon. They'll listen.

Gabriel Hardman Superman..American…something…fake angry…bored…

Ed Brubaker To be fair, Superman never punched Hitler.

KurtBusiek He shook him by the scruff of his neck, though. AND Mussolini!

Larry Marder FOX generated Superman controversy is mostly so Newscorp can take shots at arch-foe TimeWarner right?
Stephen Wacker Got some angry letters today from people mad at Marvel about what we did to Superman.

Ron Marz Sarah Palin has finally commented on the Superman/citizenship controversy. Said she can see Krypton from her house.

Tom Spurgeon I didn't mind Superman renouncing his US citizenship, but that back-up where Batman takes a dump on the Constitution was pushing it
Gail Simone Not to be outdone, Marvel is doing a story where Iron Man eats the constitution.
Chip Zdarsky Sure, he can renounce his citizenship, but only an American would call himself "Superman" and wear an outfit like that.
Paul Cornell I joyfully await the day when comics fans would prefer to talk about the story rather than the controversy
