Newsarama.com : MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT Appoints JEPH LOEB To EVP, HEAD OF TV
Really? I wouldn't trust this guy to write a comic I didn't even like, much less head up an entire division of my company. This is the guy who wrote Red Hulk, Ultimatum, and a lot of the worst parts of Heroes, after all.
So I take it mean that more Marvel cartoons will feature characters eating other characters and being wholesale slaughtered with little-to-no reason behind it.
Now that's what I call quality children entertainment.
He also wrote The long halloween, Hush, dark victory, public enemies, supergirl, superman for all seasons, and absolute power.
Though lately the bad has been outweighing the good.
To be honest, his writing hasn't been the same since his son passed away.
In this type of job he'd be serving as more of an agent and editor. I don't think he'd be doing much writing. And even if he did, there would be many other writers per show. I'm going to give him a chance before I condemn him.
If anyone needs me, I'm in the back there committing suicide.
Sorry Mr. Loeb, everything I own or have read/seen that you have been involved in has been absolutely horrible. I think you singlehandedly destroyed my interest in Ultimate Marvel, something I really enjoyed before Ultimates3.
Does this mean he's not writing comics anymore? If so, I'm sorry for the television projects, but score for the comics!!
Yes, to be fair, he has a lot of well-written works under his belt, but that doesn't mean much anymore when his current output is so unforgivably terrible.
And yeah, I kid him, but I don't really think he'll have much influence over what is written so it isn't like he'll destroy the MU animated like he did the Ultimate Universe.
God damn it.
Looks like I'm a DC man until Quesada and Loeb leave Marvel.
This is why I hate Loeb.
I take it none of you have heard of promoting someone to where they can do the least damage then? In this type of VP job he won't be able to write as much.
I SO hope you're right. Ultimatum was the last Marvel title I bothered to buy. It stopped me bothering with Marvel altogether.
Maybe Marvel are hoping that he can make 6-12 year old children keep watching shows they don't like in the same way that he can make 25-65 year old children keep buying comics they don't like.
Eh marvel is still dead to me, they could make Stan Lee the VP for all I care these days JQ pretty much killed my interest in marvel.
Move over. Lemme in there, too.
We will see. Loeb is really inexcusably bad and has been for some time.
I keep telling people this! Stop buying crap! Loeb drove me away from Hulk. He kept me from even trying the Ultimates stuff around that time. He costs them readership. He should, by rights, be costing them more, but too many people keep buying books they don't like.
I never bought a book I don't like. I downloaded some that in fact I wish I would have as an original book. The only bad thing I can remember is: Peter Parker, making a bargain with the devil. But the newer Spider-Man stories are still great, although he is not married to MJ anymore. I haven't read Red Hulk, but World War Hulk was great. I usually read the X-Men titles, X-Force, Cable, Spider-Man and Wolverine. But I haven't read ultimatum, all those thick books are too expensive. I would have probably read it, if it would be released as thinner regular titles. I guess Ultimatum had 4 thick books each costing about 12 euro or something like that. And the newer storylines are all released often as those thick books. That totally sucks. I mostly buy regular releases, X-Force and Cable being the exception, because they were not released every month and it's not thaaat expensive to follow the storylines, although they are those thick books as well.
Maybe the people who don't like the comics are just a minority
I like what I read.
