As long as they’re copies of Olivia Munn: Celebrity Showdown.
Not since disapproving mothers and domineering girlfriends have comic books faced such ruthless extermination en masse. It seems some lawyer types have taken umbrage with the looming publication of Olivia Munn: Celebrity Showdown and have decided to take action. Legal action.
Upon hearing this I was tempted to applaud the lawyers’ efforts, presuming they had the comic book world’s best interests at heart and wanted to bar the release of shelf-cluttering drivel about a cable television personality I’m barely aware exists. Unfortunately my support quickly turned to indifference as I learned the lawyers represented Ms. Munn, not the comic book world as a whole, and as such were ordering a cease and desist on any further advertising, production, distribution or exploitation of the title. Apparently no one bothered to ask G4’s premiere hostess for permission to do the funnybook.
That the lawyers ordered online outlet Heavy Ink to destroy their copies of Olivia Munn: Celebrity Showdown instead of going to the source and ordering the same from publisher Antarctic Press proves their unfitness to be negotiating the comic book world at all, as any self-respecting geek knows that destroying the mother ship is the only way to end the threat once and for all. Good luck destroying those scout fighters, lawyer guys.
Also I have a bone to pick with you, lawyers interested in causing the destruction of celebrity-centered comic books: where were you when this went down?
