WAITING FOR TOMMY
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: Just one thing before we continue, you aren't Bill Jemas in drag are you?
FELICIA
: Umm. no

RICHARD: Good. Because Bill looks lousy in a dress
FELICIA: That would be a fantastic concept though

RICHARD: I'll pitch it to Epic. Creative skeletons?
FELICIA: That is hilarious. Well, there is that controversial stuff we spoke about that you're going to drop in a few days.

RICHARD: That's right, hey everyone, look for that in Lying In The Gutters on Monday folks, when Felicia becomes our new star Gutterati! I certainly think you've given our readers enough heartaches for one week.
FELICIA
: Wow.

MARVELS TPB

RICHARD: And when people have been questioning the power of comics activism amongst fans, a sign that when they want to change something, they can. Now, if was over something even more substantial that Mark Waid getting dropped from Fantastic Four, even better, yes?
FELICIA: Yes they can. This reminds me of that whole law of causalities that coked up guy was talking about in the Matrix. With what's going on here, me and you, and how Marvel is trying to patch up their leak. Well, it's funny that I'm so positive I'm not the first person to have leaked from within and I won't be the last. When you treat people sort of crappy, they are gonna find a way to get back at you. And, they can cycle out all these employees that they want, so long as they keep the policies they have now, someone will always leak. Cause and effect. Just like Bill said he wasn't going to write FF because of the anger of fans... cause and effect.

Say, do you wonder where Waid got his info about Bill filling in for him? I wonder who would tell him such a thing?

RICHARD: Tell me what you know, Felicia!
FELICIA: Well, I posted this in reply to Joe Quesada's article, and I never really knew if people heard me, so I'm going to say something similar here:

Marvel doesn't want the fans to know that they really have the power, in fact they're willing to do everything within their power to make you think the opposite. It's a delicate balance though, where you have to in one end, make you're fans happy enough where they feel that they have some kind of choice in the matter. But then in the other end, you can't really listen to the fans because they'll take the company down to hell in a handbasket.

So you tell them things like the voice on the internet is not the same voice that buys the comics in stores. And they tell you that they should be trusted as far as where they are taking Spider-Man or Daredevil... And you know what, to a degree, they are right. You should trust them when it comes to certain things. Bendis on Daredevil. Straczynski on Spider-Man. Waid on FF... but when you see that their decisions have taken abrupt and violent U-turns right over themselves, then no one has to tell you that something stinks. It's just common sense. So it's at these times when they tell you that you should listen to them about the direction they are taking things that you shouldn't.

I know sometimes things need to be modified, because they can be done even better more fantastic ways, but you can't tell me that getting rid of Waid was a decision in the interest of the book or the fans. I think a lot of people online, not just me, made this very clear to Marvel yesterday. We will not accept it.

So when Joe himself gets on to post something online in reply to all this, you know everyone did something good. We put together our collective foots and kicked em right where it hurts the most. And I'm sure somewhere out there, Waid is all teary eyed about how much love he was shown by the very people who matter most. At the Bendis board, I posted something to the extent of mentioning at what times meetings went down at Marvel and what was said at those meetings.

That dude from Newsarama and Bendis himself made it seem like I had no idea what I was saying or talking about. But you have to wonder who told Bendis that a meeting didn't go down? Who told Newsarama that Bill really wasn't planning on eventually writing FF?

So yesterday I posted info about how Marvel reacted to the whole thing, and people were really interested because I was revealing to them that there was a reaction from the company, and that their voices were heard. I think I might have given them this advantage this one time while I was over there.
