It took this thread 3 months to get to 6 pages, and look how much discussion this controversy has generated in a couple of days. This book is the first time the OG team is almost entirely back together in years, weíve known this for a month, but thatís not even discussed anymore because people are focusing all of their energy on a bunch of obviously satirical characters that more than likely will go to limbo after this mini is over. If people are wondering why Marvel is doing this with the New Warriors, the reason is very clear: not enough people are caring about this title without a gimmick.


    Yep this gimmicky approach is generating so much more chatter and bringing so much more relevancy to the NW brand according to some I'm personally expecting it to lite the sales charts on 🔥.


    Talk is cheap as they say so if the extra conversation doesn't translate into significantly more sales none of this
    extra attention means anything.

    Pretty sure the noose was because she is black. It was a common practice to lynch black people when they got too "uppity" only a few decades back.

    I think they're saying the majority of white writers proooobably don't have their Ultrafanboy Death Threats paired with the classic racial hatred

    They do get a lot of crap just for being white, though.

    I mean, iím Black and Iíve never bought/not bought a book based on a writer's ethnicity. I think itís biased in the extreme to go around pre-judging what a person can and canít write that way.

    Excuse the rant, that kind of thinking just irks me.
    That said, Ďnuff said, on my part, at least till the actual book comes out.

    The timing makes it very unlikely that this book could get a significant sales boost, unfortunately. If sales are not harmed by the fact that it’s already a niche title, the Coronavirus crisis might just bury it, ‘cause it’s definitely the smaller titles that are gonna take the heat first. The entire Outlawed line dropped at the worst time.

    Yeah, Outlawed #1 itself is the only issue that made it out. Diamond just shuttered, so after this week, that's it. Digital or nothing. Empyre's in the same boat, got it's Road to Empyre issue out and that's all. Disaster for Marvel.

    Poor new warriors just can't catch a break can they? I just came from a transformers forum and they were making fun of this book. Even non comic sites are laughing at it. Sigh. Poor new warriors.

    Even Daily Mail were laughing at this and they're a bigger joke than this.

    Marvel kinda managed to piss of everyone with this lol. Comicgate and co's reactions are obvious, but I've also seen a lot of people on twitter who care about representation being offended and feeling like Marvel is treating it like a joke lol.

    It's so "nice" to see the CG crowd and progressive comic fans come together during these trying times to unite in their hatred for this book.

    People always try and say that the old "all press is good press no matter what" way of thinking is still true. It isn't. Usually there is so much talk about something these days that people have made up their minds long before it ever comes out. It is not like the old days when people would be like "I need to check this book or movie out to see what all the fuss is about". These days people make up their mind and move on to whatever else is causing the hubbub without giving things that don't catch their interest a second thought.

    This book is going to be forgotten fast.
