Via Bleeding Cool:


As of today’s release of Action Comics #1 by  Grant Morrison, The Comic Conspiracy, will until further notice, be  boycotting all future Grant Morrison books. If you want Action Comics,  you will have to buy it elsewhere.


Christian comic book readers and shop owners. Join us in  the Grant Morrison Boycott. Action Comics #1 is a slap in the face to  Superman, Christians and Superman creators Siegel and Shuster!!


I could see Guy Gardner and maybe even Hal Jordan (Green  Lanterns) saying it. I could see Oliver Queen (Green Arrow) saying it. I  could easily see Damian Wayne (Robin) or MAYBE even Bruce Wayne saying  it. But Superman was created to be the “perfect” super-hero.  Unblemished. Superman is an American icon.


It grieves me to see a liberal Scottish schmuck like  Grant Morrison take these liberties. I’m sorry, Superman would NEVER  take God’s name in vain. In the words of the late Jim Croce, “You don’t  tug on Superman’s cape.


The story “attitude” didn’t bother me. I’ve had to accept  a LOT of changes over my nearly 35 years in the business. However,  Superman saying “GD” isn’t going to fly with me.


This wasn’t creative flow. It wasn’t necessary in the  story. It isn’t Superman at all. And it goes against a basic Christian  principle. It was a blatant stab.


I deal with books like “Crossed” and “The Boys”. I  accepted gay characters being introduced into a children specific book  like Archie Comics. I however am getting very tired of having comic  writer’s liberal agendas force fed to me. Mr. Morrison has stepped over  my line. If I have to stand alone on this… I will.


The boycott stands. All orders for Action Comics #2, as  well as any other books written by Grant Morrison will be cancelled as  soon as Diamond Comics opens it’s offices today. I ask my customers to  understand as best they can. I understand that it’s only a comic and  it’s not the real world, but I feel that as a Christian I have to draw  the line somewhere.


Outside of the religious community, GD can stand for “graphic design” and plenty of other things. It’s only used to mean “god damn” in Christian circles. The “Gd” above, on the other hand, looks like a grunt to me, similar to the “Hh” Morrison uses for Batman’s laughs/exhalations.

Lying to increase his fake resume’s plausibility, Rob Granito claimed to have worked with Dwayne McDuffie, and posted this update, following the news that Dwayne had passed away.
If you haven’t been following my second favorite comics news item of the week, barely-literate comics art thief Rob Granito has been caught, exposed, and ruined. If you have any dealings with this guy, cut them off. I’ve been pretty darn entertained by his pathetic attempts to protect his entirely fictitious reputation, and I almost considered his sins against comics worth it, just for the amount of fun we in the industry have been having at his expense.
Then I saw this screengrab above (via Colleen Doran and Tom Feister). He used the death of one of our own to bolster his own fake resume.
Rob, if you see this, pack it in. I’ve seen a few folks that think you have a mental disorder of some kind (mostly because your lies are so incredibly stupid, and your writing ability is evidently on a 2nd grade level), but I don’t think that’s it. I just think you’re a bad person. I think you started off doing what a lot of us did in middle school: tracing drawings you like, and not ALWAYS telling your friends that you didn’t draw them on your own. And unlike anyone with any sense, you just kept going. It was really stupid and definitely criminal, and you’ve been caught, you imbecilic fraud.
Stay away from our cons. Get a real job. It’s over. We’re not letting  you come to our conventions anymore. We’re not going to let you sell  traced versions of our art anymore.
We’re watching.
