Shaking the industry

I doubt we'll ever know if the success of the Alt★Hero kickstarter helped galvanize Disney into replacing the head SJW at Marvel. But I, for one, will mourn the departure of Axel Alonso from Marvel before he had the chance to sink it even deeper.
Marvel Entertainment, the home of Captain America, Spider-Man and the X-Men, among other colorful heroes, is undergoing a change in leadership. The company released a statement Friday announcing the appointment of C. B. Cebulski as editor in chief. Mr. Cebulski is replacing Axel Alonso, who served in that role since 2011 and is leaving Marvel.

As one of the public faces for Marvel, Mr. Alonso sometimes found himself at the forefront of controversies. In April Marvel took a beating on social media after seeming to link poor sales to a lack of enthusiasm for newer characters who were female or had diverse backgrounds. In fact, it was a handful of retailers in a small subset of comic-shop owners who felt that way.
As well as the 20 percent of comics buyers who stopped buying comics over the last year. Sadly, we can't count on Marvel continuing to implode, although it may well do so. Fortunately, Alonso's co-conspirator, Brian Bendis, is now at DC Comics and we can be absolutely confident that he'll be doing his best to sink DC in much the same way he helped sink Marvel.

Then again, upon further review, I think we can be confident that the more things change at Marvel, the more they stay the same.

But the biggest thing that Cebulski might be known to fans for directly, is editing the company’s sleeper hit series, Runaways. The series, written by Brian K. Vaughn (Y the Last Man, Saga) and drawn by Adrian Alphona, featured a diverse and compelling cast of teenage children of supervillains rebelling against bad guys and good guys alike.

Ah, how I do love the smell of convergence in a competitor! In any event, we are going to shake up the industry in ways that no one who is in it can presently imagine. I can't say anything more about it now, but rest assured, we are going to be hitting them from sides they didn't even realize they had.

I'll be sending out emails soon to all the backers with the promised postcards and a few other digital bonuses, one of which you're going to be able to see on Monday as part of my new monthly column on the culture war.

Cebulski is responsible for the "Runaways", which looks awfully SJWish. He'll most likely continue the disaster that Marvel has become.

Blogger Dave November 17, 2017 2:18 PM  

“It’s crazy. It’s an honor. I’m blown away by the opportunity,” Mr. Cebulski said in a telephone interview from his home in Shanghai.

Blogger Chris McCullough November 17, 2017 2:26 PM  

I wonder if part of the reason Bendis jumped was because he thought he was next in line for EIC.

Given the success of the crowdfunding, shouldn't the immediate success of alt hero be assured? Beyond that, you could stay relatively small and lean, especially if you publish as a webcomic with printable issues.

Blogger Silly but True November 17, 2017 2:35 PM  

Cebulski's been Marvel's primary international talent scout since about 2008. He became VP of Intl Business Development & (Worldwide) Brand Mgmt in 2014. Then put in charge of Marvel's Shanghai office in 2015 where he's been since.

In an earlier comment to a post, Vox noted that the center just wants to be entertained, not preached to. They don't want things politicized, even with a pro-Trump message.

It isn't that the new Marvel was "diverse", it that it was only diverse. The only thing I know about their new lesbian latina - I can't even remember the name of the character - is her gender, race, and orientation. I don't know about any superpower.

Instead of a cover showing some well tanned woman changing lead into gold, or flying, or emitting energy beams, or empty beer cans, or champagne bubbles from somewhere we get a SJWermonette.

Football - the NFL shouldn't be politicized, and even the right wing shouldn't push it. There are patriotic traditions, but it involves the flag and the anthem, not MAGA. It should stay that way.

But social mood - at this phase it gets polarized where people are insisting that others take sides. There was a scene from the old Walton's series where John-boy, now a journalist, asks a woman visiting from Germany in the late 1930s talking about culture and music festivals to talk about Hitler and Krystallnacht and such. She demurred and tried to keep things calm.

Entertainment dies when it gets politicized, even if it is politicized toward the majority. Just like computer code, especially opensource should be a meritocracy, and I shouldn't care if my best contributor and bug hunter is a lefty lesbian or maintains the NPI web presence.

But.

Blogger Howard Stone November 18, 2017 6:54 AM  

Netflix isn’t Disney, even though Marvel is, they recently had to raise their prices. They put out more progressive SJW pedo crap than they do anything else. Although they haven’t forgotten the old action packed formulas that filled theatre seats, but they only use them to keep old subscribers so that they can use that revenue to stay in business and continue to put out more and more SJW garbage. I tried watching J Jones, terrible low budget pro abortion etc.. I tried watching the Iron Soy Boy, couldn’t finish it, the only character I found interesting was Harry. Luke Cage, couldn’t finish it, didn’t care about the characters. Daredevil season one I struggled through, they really need to kill off Foggy already. Daredevil season two was only watchable because of the Punisher scenes. I can only imagine what an Incredible Hulk series would be like, modeled after the Lou Ferringo original series formula, Banner travels around on the run, each episode highlighting some SJW cause. One episode he Hulks out at a pro life demonstration, another he Hulks out at a Trump rally, another he Hulks out at the Mexican border, etc., etc. It’s not a good time for Hollywood and Suspect after such a long run they’re experienceing quite a bit of cognitive dissonance. Just be careful, they are subtle, they may try and pull a Fox News and submit a little bit just to pull us back in.
