Letter: Dear Neil (2)

(Written by Kyra Sellers) [NOTE from the writer: Some asshole hacked into my computer at home and stole a bunch of private letters that I was never going to send anyway. He’s posting them on the web and I can’t stop him.]

Dear Neil,

What the HELL?

I guess I’ve been behind the times or something because I just now saw that you’re writing some bullshit series for MARVEL, of all people.

You know, when you did that 1602 thing for them a couple of years back, I was like “whatever” because even though it was Marvel it wasn’t REALLY Marvel, you know? It was more like you were making a statement, saying to Marvel: “Your characters and your universe are so shitty that I need to subtract 400 years from them in order to make them palatable.” And then you went ahead and did all of their characters and all of their stories BETTER than they did and without any of the trappings or fall-backs they have in place.

OK, fine, I respect that. Sort of. (Still think it was a waste of your time, though.)

But now you’re doing this “Eternals” thing? What the hell is up with that? It will “change the Marvel Universe forever!” says one listing I read. Oh, puh-lease! That’s just more of the hype bullshit that superhero fanboy wankers drool over. Get over it! Stop pissing around in the superhero kiddie pool and PLEASE go write something that actually matters!
