    But I guess that's the difference between actual writers and neophytes to an industry they neither fully appreciate or understand.
    Both you, me and a few others sent letters that offered valid criticisms of stories that we didn't agree with in other BP runs, letters that actually got printed and responded to. Victor Freeman often engaged with some writers on social media to offer his criticism.

    Writers don't have to write to please every fan but they can listen to valid points of contention.

    One of my letters actually got printed during David Liss's run.

    I think having some negative mixed in there does atleast show that that they are acknowledging that their run isn't perfect and trying to act as though their run. Is perfect

    The thing is that none of the critical letters are being published.

    Yep Coates is trying to paint it like his run is Flawless. Don't worry though we will outlast Coates.

    Looks like the cover I posted is a different one, an homage to Stelfreeze's cover.

    At Emerald City Comic Con I talked to Stelfreeze about some of the critical aspects of this run and speaking for himself he is aware of it when brought to his attention at cons since he has others running his social media accounts, he has some leeway in what he brings to the table but a bulk of it is Coates and editorial

    Today's levels ain't the same as back then especially during Priest's run

    They did the exact same thing under Shooter as long as they had been part of his chosen group, same ish just under more favorable terms if they matched up with his

    See all of that just gets drowned in the same circle arguments about Coates (I hate him too) so I can't even see any of it. My bad.

    This is interesting. He is aware of the criticism pertaining to T'Challa's / Wakanda's depiction?
