Greg Rucka Discusses ‘grotesque Hollywoodisation’ of Marvel and DC Comics
In what seems to be the latest in a wave of internal (and vocal) criticisms directed at some of the larger comic book publishers, Marvel writer Greg Rucka recently opening up in Mark Millar’s CLiNT magazine about how his patience is wearing thin with the current practices at both Marvel and DC Comics. With DC’s New 52 relaunch last year and Marvel’s upcoming Marvel NOW! initiative, there’s no question that there’s been a great deal of shuffling among creative teams, abruptly pushing many talented creators off of books they’ve held long runs on. In addition to these changes, many in the industry have begun to raise an eyebrow at the current directions that the companies are taking when it comes to quality over quantity on their many different properties.
