RIP Marvel

I was going to write up a post about how stupid True Blood is, but this takes precedence.

Today it was announced that Disney is buying Marvel Comics for 4 billion dollars. It is truly a dark day in both the comic book world and the creative world in general. I can't even begin to express the utter disgust I feel towards this acquisition. Basically, all the characters I've grown up loving are now going to be owned by one of the biggest corporate shills to ever exist. Everything Disney puts out is coated in saccharine and aimed at the brainless tween crowd.

If you need evidence that Disney cranks out shit, look no further than the Disney channel, Hannah Montana, and the Jonas Brothers. All of it is complete and utter crap. There is not one redeeming quality. And now, my beloved Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, and Deadpool are going to be under their control. It's enough to make Jack Kirby spin in his grave.

I can guarantee that the Marvel comics that I grew up with will not be the same that Rhys knows. It really makes me sick to think about.
