(of course the superhero comics community embraced him as a real literary talent because the superhero comics community swoons whenever they get any positive attention from anyone who’s not a member of the superhero comics community).
To be fair, Meltzer only got the attention cause he was a "New York Times Bestselling Author!" If it weren't for that, he wouldn't have been so hyped praised.
Christopher Hitchens is thoroughly overrated.
And a pompous ass.
Brad Meltzer...doesn't he write for The Stranger?
I always figured that if I wrote for The Stranger, my Stranger name would be Ridley Seltzer.
Hitchens can be fun if he's arguing in support of something I already agree with. But he's sloppy. On page 10 of God is not Great, he says that Marx and Freud weren't doctors.
Meltzer nearly single-handedly drove me from comics. His destruction of his corner of the DC Univers was excrutiating to work through and it eventually got me questioning the entire current state of the medium. Thanks for freeing up some of my cash for other things, Brad!
Brad Meltzer's Identity Crisis is one of the shittiest comic books I've read. Fuck him.
