    The Jed MacKay who writes for Marvel is not either of the Canadian TV writers by that name. I interviewed him on my podcast recently: https://deconstructingcomics.com/?p=7476

    • Hunh. Also, there’s another Chris Cantwell, who is a horrible white supermacist, so it’s better to be mixed up with a TV writer. But good info.

  2. I heard the disgust in Josh’s voice as he mention Van Scriver and I thought, “what happened there?” and googled. Man, what a gross hole to fall down on a Monday morning.

    In conclusion though, thank you for being a continuous bright spot in comics, iFanboy. While there’s that just unbridled trash as a part of it, knowing and being a part of this community helps me believe the comics fandom is still alright.
