Grant Morrison addresses the issue of late comics and the fans who complain about them

From the final (alas) issue of COMIC FOUNDRY


"... they'll all get a well-deserved, long-awaited short, sharp shock when they finally realize that real life is less indulgent of their petulant whims than mummy and her ever giving tit! (laughs)

"I'm sure Dr. Freud had a name for this kind of oral compulsive bird-beak behavior, but, in a world where there are still too many mothers whose dearest dream is a single bowl of rice with which to feed their diseased and doomed children, it's really hard to have sympathy for a bunch of blubbery malcontents bitching about the frequency of their comic books.

"You get it when it's done, o ye privileged, dissatisfied child of the Capitalist Society of Spectacle."

Hello Mr. Pfeifer

So, I've been looking for a way to contact you on the interwebs and could not. I was wondering if you could e-mail me cause I wanted to ask if you could help me out with something for my girlfriend. Thank you so much!

Should DC fail to pay him on time, would his griping about it be a "petulant whim"?

I dunno, when you talk about goods and services that are solicited for a particular date coming later than promised the fans have a reason to bitch. Of course there can be perfectly valid reasons for a late book and we should all be a little understanding, but late is late and it can be irritating. Monthly publishing is very tough. But some books run late, we complain. It's the circle of life in the comic book industry.

Equally irritating is when someone pulls the "well at least you're not starving in africa" internet argument, which is what you say when you have nothing to say.

A comic book deferred is a comic book denied!
