"I’ve got a very bad feeling about this."

I am either the best or worst superhero ever, depending on who you ask. Eclectic geek. Fandoms galore. Costumes. Video games. Comic books. Science Fiction. Fantasy. Television. Movies. Culture. History. I really like GIFs.

As of today’s release of Action Comics #1 by  Grant Morrison, The Comic Conspiracy, will until further notice, be  boycotting all future Grant Morrison books. If you want Action Comics,  you will have to buy it elsewhere.


Christian comic book readers and shop owners. Join us in  the Grant Morrison Boycott. Action Comics #1 is a slap in the face to  Superman, Christians and Superman creators Siegel and Shuster!!


I could see Guy Gardner and maybe even Hal Jordan (Green  Lanterns) saying it. I could see Oliver Queen (Green Arrow) saying it. I  could easily see Damian Wayne (Robin) or MAYBE even Bruce Wayne saying  it. But Superman was created to be the “perfect” super-hero.  Unblemished. Superman is an American icon.


It grieves me to see a liberal Scottish schmuck like  Grant Morrison take these liberties. I’m sorry, Superman would NEVER  take God’s name in vain. In the words of the late Jim Croce, “You don’t  tug on Superman’s cape.


The story “attitude” didn’t bother me. I’ve had to accept  a LOT of changes over my nearly 35 years in the business. However,  Superman saying “GD” isn’t going to fly with me.


This wasn’t creative flow. It wasn’t necessary in the  story. It isn’t Superman at all. And it goes against a basic Christian  principle. It was a blatant stab.


I deal with books like “Crossed” and “The Boys”. I  accepted gay characters being introduced into a children specific book  like Archie Comics. I however am getting very tired of having comic  writer’s liberal agendas force fed to me. Mr. Morrison has stepped over  my line. If I have to stand alone on this… I will.


The boycott stands. All orders for Action Comics #2, as  well as any other books written by Grant Morrison will be cancelled as  soon as Diamond Comics opens it’s offices today. I ask my customers to  understand as best they can. I understand that it’s only a comic and  it’s not the real world, but I feel that as a Christian I have to draw  the line somewhere.


Outside of the religious community, GD can stand for “graphic design” and plenty of other things. It’s only used to mean “god damn” in Christian circles. The “Gd” above, on the other hand, looks like a grunt to me, similar to the “Hh” Morrison uses for Batman’s laughs/exhalations.

More rightwinger conservative christians crying “we are being persecuted”.  
I would agree with Dean Trippe, that given Morrison’s tendency toward double consonant assonances, that this was not Superman saying “god damn” or even “Gee dee”.  
This reaction is, I’m sorry to say, a bunch of those “war on Christmas” types refusing to accept that, as usual, other people do not see things the way they do; and the way they see them is to perceive themselves as persecuted by the  ”liberal schmuck”.
Go stand alone. Nobody is persecuting you.

God dammit, Superman! Stop being all liberal and caring about the poor and trying to save the world and be more like Jesus!

Except that’s what Jesus was all about?  Wow.  I can’t even - WOW.
