Mark-Waid (1).jpg

This is the story of a comic book industry legend sperging out over an indie comic getting a publishing deal and possibly committing career suicide by shutting down a small publisher’s deal with his online enemy.

The internet is a fact of life nowadays, a prevalent beast that has an effect on nearly everything we do. One of its biggest effects has been the revelation that various legends have been unmasked as the complete spergs they really are, one of said legends-turned-spergs is Mark Waid, an ostensibly legendary comic book writer, responsible for some of the most celebrated comic books out there, such as Kingdom Come, Superman: Birthright, and celebrated runs on ongoing series like The Flash.

The thing is, Mark Waid never managed to get a handle on the internet, and it clearly shows in his online conduct: endless tantrums whenever something doesn’t go as he would like, constant virtue signalling about “How the strong should protect the weak” while bullying others into silence at same time, and staying quiet about sexual harassers within the industry. He also frequently rage quits social media whenever he gets a pushback on his insanity. Below are some examples:

This is how he handles criticism:
Criticism-1.png
In 2015, Batman #41 (New 52) had a variant cover that was homage to The Killing Joke. In The Killing Joke, the Joker shot a undisguised Batgirl in the spine paralyzing her for years. The controversy about the cover was because SJWs thought the cover looked rapey:

Having the a comic book cover with a character in peril is something that never happens, right?

But the insanity goes deeper, consider this quote from Gary Groth, one of Waid's former editors ('We Told You So: Comics As Art' by Tom Spurgeon and Michael Dean):

His reaction to a parody YT account shitposting on a livestream (http://archive.li/ZUE4a):

Arthur Sudyam is an artist, more known for his contributions to The Walking Dead comics. At a con a couple years ago, he over-bought booth spaces and other artists were forced to move locations (basically he made a dick move). Mark Waid being himself had this reaction:

Mark Waid can't make comics anymore without injecting his politics into what he's writing:

"The Strong Protect the Weak" -Mark Waid (Sorry for the size):
Protector-Of-The-Weak.jpg
Tweet 1: Just when you're starting to feel good about things here, the twisted, nasty, fucked-up degenerates show up to piss on themselves.

Tweet 2: Not a subtweet. Several comics folk are getting accused of 'child pornography' this weekend by Gamergate types who think they're clever.

Tweet 3: It's really nauseating in no small part because it mocks a genuine horrible problem in society. But these creeps think it's "funny".

Tweet 4: I'm having to block assholes right and left who think it's a RIOT accusing someone of being a child pornographer just to stir shit.

Wait? Didn't you defend a pedophile? (http://archive.li/Ab2fw):

Mark Waid vs Diversity and Comics
Diversity and Comics, referred to as Zack, is a comic book critic on YouTube who is public enemy number one to snowflake comics pros because they don’t like his opinions.
Mark has an online feud with DiversityAndCmx (aka Zack). The feud started when Mark wanted an identifiable picture of Zack so that if he attended the Baltimore Comic Con he would be notified and “have a talk” with Zack (https://archive.li/e007i):
Have-A-Talk-1.png
Have-A-Talk-3.jpg


He later tries to cover his ass (https://archive.li/FH7Io):
Have-A-Talk-2.png


After the previous spergout, Mark announces he would be having a "Civil Conversation" with Zack over a phone call (https://archive.li/IQ931):
Civil-Convo-1.png


After the conversation between Zack and Mark in which they both promised to not publicly talk about the content of the call (http://archive.li/qAEud):
Civil-Convo-2.png


Mark then quotes a part of the conversation breaking the promise. Zack then makes a video talking about the conversation since Mark didn’t hold up to his word and did a Mark Waid impression mocking him.
Apparently Zack is very gifted at impressions because after that video Mark started threatening to sue Zack for illegally recording the conversation. Later when he caught heat for this, he made the excuse it was for a story he was working with at the time.
Within 24 hours of this post being made (https://archive.li/JG3GM),
Jawbreakers-1.png


Mark and a horde of SJWs bullied a small publishing company into dropping a project made by Zack and other artists (Jon Malin, Ethan Van Sciver) who have been getting pushed out of the SJW-infested comics industry.
AP-1.jpg

AP-2.jpg

The IndieGoGo was a massive success making $275K from the initial goal of $5K that was set out and received a publishing deal with Antarctic Press. After just 1 day of harassment, AP’s owner was forced to cancel the publication under the fear of continued harassment.
Jawbreakers-2.jpg


After getting some push-back from him strong-arming AP into dropping Jawbreakers, Mark:
AP-3.jpg


Mark Waid effectively used his position as an industry legend and a Marvel Entertainment employee to shut down a smaller publisher from publishing Zack's indie book, making what he did a lawyer's wet dream:
Possible aftermath for Mark Waid. Since source is 4chan, it might be BS (https://archive.li/IUR2n):

Disclaimer: Due to the recent events as stated above, Mark has shut down all social network accounts and is in hiding now, so we don't have archives of those (for now), however, there's enough of Mark's spergery to start up this thread while playing the waiting game for him to pop-up again.

What gets me is that this is a 56 year old man acting like a fucking 12 year old on the Internet. Every single social media account he has is full of temper tantrums that wouldn't look out of place from someone a third of his age. I know quite a few older people with social media accounts, and they mostly stay quiet, content with sharing stupid pictures and jokes. But this dude flies off the handle at every perceived slight.

Not to mention, this dude's supposed to be a professional (keyword: supposed). Professionals shouldn't act like this, but then again, it does say a lot that he's not the only dumbass at Marvel pulling this shit.

If you watch his interview with Ethan Van Sciver you'll see how insecure he is about his personal life, that being a lonely likely virgin old man pushing 60. His bitter attitude is no surprise with that context.

Three separate lawyers to my knowledge have chimed in on Mark's phone call with Antartic, one of them being Leonard French (some of you may recognize that name as Leonard was one of the bigger people in the Alex Mauer case last year). Pretty much all of them, as OP points out, have said that Waid's actions are reprehensible at best, and flat-out illegal at worst. The Comicsgate thread has some more specific posts on what laws Waid may have just broken, but the long and the short of it is that they are laws companies never want to be caught breaking as it can spell large, hefty fines.

tldr, Waid really stepped in it and if that Chan anon wasn't telling the truth about CB Celubski before, he has a good chance of becoming an unintentional prophet. Waid's basically done in the professional industry.

Here it is in case any of you are interested.

My bad. I linked the wrong video. Should've double checked.

So....is he aware he's a slightly man in his early 60's as opposed to some sort of mid 20's marine? Because I really can't imagine him beating people up with his gigantic muscles, he seems about 2-3 years from a massive heart attack considering the sheer levels of rage and stress he generates from a crap youtubber.

Kingdom come's a pretty good comic however.

I think Waid is aware of what he is on some level. There's this weird bit in the EVS interview where Waid talks about his "privilege" to have no familial obligations which he sites as part of the reason he needs to help those "less fortunate". Being a manchild in your 60s with no wife or children is not what any healthy person would consider a privilege.

Waid is completely screwed if Marvel decided to let him dangle alone. Is there any chance that they may back him in a legal fight? And what had D&C said about it all so far? Any noises of lawyers being consulted yet?
I think it's highly unlikely that Marvel will back Mark if this goes to court. "Marvel allegedly uses unfair business practices to control comics market" is a news story that will play nationally. "Disney accused of harassing small comic creators out of business" is a news story that will play internationally.

Marvel/Disney knows that some of their writers have been doing some shit. They really don't want discovery to happen, and if they have to pay a couple million and cut one of their aging stars loose to prevent that from happening, they probably will.

It apparently went straight to his head. I liked it too, but he's really gotten unhinged. Waid first entered my radar when he was publicly sperging on his facebook about D&C's Meyer might be attending the same con as him, and he put out a call-to-arms asking for all his professionals and fans to pull him aside, even if speaking at a panel, so he could go confront him(presumably to start a fight). It's fucking mental how he can't take criticism of troons in the industry. Waid wasn't even one of D&C's targets of criticism! Ultimate white-knighting so hard, it horsehoe'd around into becoming essentially a black knight.

this happened around September 2017 contextually. The Federalist has an article on it, as do a few other outlets. Honestly these industry pros had no fucking business paying this much attention to a youtube nobody, but here we are!

He'd be wiser to get his own lawyer, since Marvel's best defense is to throw him under the bus.

"It's all that guy's fault, we had no idea this idiot was doing this."

No ethical lawyer would represent both Marvel and this guy in this unless Marvel is, for some insane reason, willing to say sure, yeah, it was our plan that this guy do this illegal thing.
