Comic writers losing control of their creations Anonymous 09/01/2021 (Wed) 02:13:34 No. 17466 [Reply]
How many instances have you seen of writers getting screwed out of how their series/characters/whatever are portrayed and complain about it later? In a recent DC Black Label book (Suicide Squad: Get Joker), they had Wild Dog in that universe be part of the Jan. 6th Capitol Hill tour insurrection as a right wing fanatic, and his original creators Max Allan Collins and Terry Beatty went bitching to BleedingCool about it, and that made me curious about other incidents. Here's the rant: https://archive.is/9NiSS >My first reaction at discovering Wild Dog had been recruited into the Suicide Squad as the leader of the Jan. 6 Insurrection as a defecating Proud Boy-style seditionist was bewildered shock. Basically, "Huh?" That quickly grew to rage, expressed mostly as, "F-ck DC," and "F-ck the writer." I shared these sentiments with Wild Dog's artist/co-creator, Terry Beatty, and he basically tried to calm me down. But, obviously, it gradually worked him into a rabid lather, too. > For me, it's settled into disappointment and disgust. Wild Dog was conceived as a home-grown costumed hero. No cape, no cowl, just what could be put together out of such items as a hockey mask (with its Jason resonance) and body armor and real-world stuff from a hardware store and a home workshop. The usual "what if" all fiction writers operate from – "what if" somebody decided to actually be a costumed hero? > The results were not always beneficial. When Wild Dog found himself confronted by a would-be Bucky to his Captain America, despite our hero's best efforts to discourage the Pup's participation, the child is nearly killed. Terry and I pursued this with Ms. Tree – she was a vigilante, too, but wound up both in jail and in a mental institution. I might add in the Ms. Tree feature, Terry and I explored such then-current (and still current, unfortunately) topics as date rape, abortion clinic bombings, and gay bashing. > Some defenders of what we see as a perverted use of our creation dismiss it on the grounds that Wild Dog is a minor, forgotten character. Well, tell that to DC, who have used the character in at least three other comics, most recently as a cast member of the Cave Carson comic book, and to the CW network, where Wild Dog was a recurring character on Arrow. > Wild Dog debuted in a four-issue mini-series, had a regular slot in Action Weekly, and a "Special" double-length one-shot. In addition Terry is an Eisner-winning Batman artist, and we were Eisner nominees for our Ms. Tree work at DC. I wrote a year of Batman as well as two Batman graphic novels and was the initial writer of the Tim Burton-era Batman newspaper strip. My graphic novel (with Richard Piers Rayner), Road to Perdition, generated an Academy Award-winning film that is often cited as one of the best comic book movies ever made, and the graphic novel itself appears on many "Best of" lists. As recently as 2011 Terry and I did Return to Perdition for DC. > So what? So Terry and I both have long relationships with DC and might have expected better where one of our creations is concerned. Yes, DC owns the rights to the character, but simple courtesy and common decency might suggest going down this path with Wild Dog was ill-advised – and that at least the creators should be warned. After all, invoking the Jan. 6 riot was bound to attract attention and controversy – shock value was the point, after all. > Of course we weren't informed, just as we were not told about Wild Dog being used on the Arrow TV show. We weren't paid for that (one of the few things our contract gave us) until that fact went public. I have worked with many terrific people at DC, but DC itself remains what it's always been – a corporation built on the bones of two Cleveland teenagers. > As for Brian Azzarello, who I have never met, I have to wonder what kind of writer uses the creation of another writer in such a reckless, disrespectful manner. Azzarello is one of a generation of comics writers who owe a certain debt to our Ms. Tree, the first successful crime comic book in decades when it appeared in 1981. Still the longest running private eye comic book of all time (50 issues plus specials), it paved the way for everything that followed. We might have expected better thanks than this. > DC owning Wild Dog doesn't stop it being characterized as my work – the fame of Road to Perdition guarantees I will be mentioned in the context of a character who is tied to a political movement I abhor. But a modicum of consideration from the publisher, and some respect from the writer, is too much to expect from the company and talent who ignore Bill Finger's Batman in favor of Batman fingering Catwoman.

Oh I see how it is. It's perfectly fine for them to gender, race, and sexuality swap characters, but the one time one of their characters gets gets a slight political change, then it's Heavens-to-Betsy terrible! Sound the alarms! Fucking hypocrites.
>>17555 Slight political change to something that I don't like, you mean. I guarantee you if this no name faggot was said to have been arrested for being involved in BLM this author would not have uttered a peep.
>>17466 >Max Allan Collins and Terry Beatty >>17481 >Hence Collins being a liberal faggot. Collins is in no way shape or form a later day liberal faggot, but he's your typical boomer Hollyweirdo liberal which is a very different beast. And their beef with the Orange Ganorage Man is that Trump did that one thing you are never supposed to do as a boomer man. If you're a boomer man you are to worship media approved wammen even if they've got dirty hands in the pot because the boomer woman is supposed to get her turn. Any boomer male that tells said approved media chick to beat it and leave is violating that pedestal worshiping rule of Holly weirdos land. Having said that, I also think it's deaf and dumb that Max Allen Collins has any remaining relationship with DC anymore since the editorial New York Staff he's talking about got flushed out not once twice but thrice after the 2010's. Also it's rather hypocritical that after doing years of coastie conservative approved works of detective and action fiction and working on Dick Tracy, that he stupidly thinks he'd own anything from a work for hire project.

There was this lovecraft romcom comic I used to read years ago. The premisse was that the guy was living with with lovecraftian creatures in the shape of cute girls. I just remember the last chapter I read where some robot showed up to study humans because they found the human leaps in logic interesting. Does anyone know the name? I want to know if it holds up, even if I'm 90% sure it's trash.

Getting a huge kick from reading Awful Hospital: Seriously The Worst Ever after some guy on /v/ kept making threads and reaction pictures with the main character. I thought it was going to be a lolsorandom kinda thing but it seriously hooked me in. Shame I caught up with the author and now the waiting game commences.
>>17599 Glad to see you're into the series now. I hope it was worth all the posts I made. I kept posting these images because I thought they looked rather nice since the comics are a decent repository for reaction images.

Thea White, Voice of Muriel Bagge on ‘Courage the Cowardly Dog,’ Dies at 81 Anonymous 08/02/2021 (Mon) 02:16:24 No. 16168 [Reply]
>Thea White, an actor best known for voicing the sweet-natured Scotswoman Muriel Bagge on Cartoon Network’s “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” died on July 30. She was 81. >Born on June 16, 1940 in Newark, N.J., White began acting professionally on stage in her 20s, according to Zitzner’s post. She also held jobs as a librarian and the personal assistant to Marlene Dietrich. White was married to Andy White, who drummed on several the Beatles songs including “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You,” from 1983 until his death in 2015. >In his post, Zitzner wrote that White was “looking forward to seeing” her latest project voicing Muriel, the film “Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby Doo Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog,” which is set to come out this year. https://archive.is/YBAr5

Why People still hate Viacom? Anonymous 09/04/2021 (Sat) 10:23:28 No. 17548 [Reply]
Why are so many people on the web still angry at Viacom and calling it Viacum? they've been doing that since the 2000s.
I've reported your thread and hope Frank takes it down because you asked a question that's A. About YTP's. B. Answered with one Google Search. People have and still hate Viacom because it's staunch with copyright, tried suing Youtube ages ago, and still takes down fair use YTP's and critic videos using clips from their shows. This did not need a thread. Newfag.

Hollywood's Share of China Box Office Collapses, Now Less Than 10% Anonymous 08/30/2021 (Mon) 19:38:04 No. 17431 [Reply]
https://archive.fo/FY50G In Hollywood's efforts to push into the China market it's becoming more apparent that it's not working out as originally intended. With IPs being stolen by the Chinese government, increasing anti-western sentiments growing internationally, and woke pandering that's hated so much in China that the term "baizuo" exist to mock it. It looks like the Chinese "Wider Audience" Myth is simply just that, a myth.

>>17477 Kind of. Chinese party is making a power grab, trying to gain even more control over their tech industry, and possible future competition. Tencent is one of companies that in past refused and was slow to comply with data requests, so it is getting strong armed. Anyone too independent or even slightly critical of Chinese government is getting fucked too. Jack Ma, the creator of Alibaba, disappeard for a while with no explanation, and Chinese government straight up unpersoned nation's most famous actress Zhao Wei. There is speculation that CCP is doing that due to looming financial crisis. Chinese people will look for someone to blame when austerity rears its head, and Winne The Pooh wants to make sure there will be no competing entities people could rally around. His efforts to blame foreigners for all problems might mean that Chinese corporate investment in America and Europe might be reduced too.

It recently came back online after the dev did some work making the more popular voices sound even better, while adding around 100 more voices. At certain points ai.15 is a flatout deadringer and its only going to get better from here. At this rate the typical "voice actor" may go the way of the dinosaur.
