Ugh. David Gabriel from Marvel says they're going back to meat-and-potatoes because diversity doesn't sell.

MAYBE IF YOU DIDN'T LET FASCIST SYMPATHISERS WRITE PROUD BLACK MEN PEOPLE WOULD PAY MONEY TO READ ABOUT THEM.

Diversity is not the problem. Ms. Marvel proved that.

What DOESN'T sell is the fucking 17 SPECIAL EVENTS A YEAR going on. No one knows what the fuck is going on, what the timelines are like.
Yeah the two complaints I CONSTANTLY see in the conversations I see about it is a) so many events and b) shit writers or hardly any promotion. Mockingbird has apparently had dick all in the way of promotion except for that time everyone shat bricks about the feminist t-shirt on one of the covers. I actually ended up emailing them saying I would happily give them all (the rest of, since I get America and Wolverine already) my spare money if they let literally anyone except Nick Spencer or Dan Slott or one of the other writers with long histories of being total dicks write the diverse characters, but I doubt they'll care.
NICK SPENCER AND DAN SLOTT. Dan, in particular, is a giant thorn in my side for ruining Peter Parker.
Apparently he's said some really shitty things to fans about LGBT rep as well. I don't follow those really mainstream guys, more people like Roxane Gay, Gail Simone and Joe Quinones who are generally way nicer.

it's so hard to get into it when you have no idea what's going on!
And omg it's so hard to figure out what titles a character is currently in!
