I agree with Robert about the cult of Morrison being the problem. Grant has attacked Mark repeatedly in public. Mark has never said a bad word about Grant. He’s never said a bad word about anyone really, but he’s read Grant make these personal attacks and never retaliated. He’s had the same patient demeanor with comics bloggers who come after him. He is always the bigger man.
A rational adult should be able to see that if one party speaks badly and the other doesn’t, then maybe one side isn’t entirely rational or to be trusted.
There are lots of comments and speculation about this deal that are utterly wrong. Malicious stuff just made up. Mark won’t respond to it, he isn’t giving interviews or talking about the deal right now. That leaves a vacuum where the lies can grow like bacteria unfortunately. But don’t believe anything you read from people not directly connected to Mark. Know they’re merchants of lies, and motivated by an embarrassing pettiness.
And if you still think Morrison basically wrote Red Son take a moment and consider how dumb an idea that is. I see this banded about like it’s a cast iron fact all the time and it’s just a means to take away from Marks achievement. The guy wrote the top selling Marvel and D.C. trades but Morrison fans can’t accept that.
Millar has more patience that I would have, more than most of us could I expect. And even this week he announced he gong to use his new wealth to help fix up his home town. Anyone with a negative opinion of Mark needs to take a step back and reconsider what they think.
