America Chavez

Twitter user @YellowFlashGuy has produced a list of comic book professionals to boycott. The list called Comicsgate Blacklist Bestiary aims to educate comic book readers to avoid certain comic book professionals who are “the main contributors to the declining quality” of comic books.

The list includes four comic book editors including Andy Khouri, an editor at DC Comics, Alanna Smith an assistant editor at Marvel, Heather Antos, an editor at Marvel, and Tom Breevort, the Executive Editor and Senior Vice President of Publishing at Marvel Comics.

Along with the editors the list includes a number of writers.

They include Ales Kot, Aubrey Sitterson, B. Clay Moore, Gabby Rivera, Gail Simone, Jennifer de Guzman, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kurt Busiek, Larry Hama, Magdalena Vissagio, Mark Waid, Matthew Fraction, Max Bemis, Nick Spencer, Sina Grace, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Tim Doyle, and Zachary Davisson.

The list also includes artists Andrea Shockling, Colleen Doran, Jamal Igle, Jim Zub, Marissa Louise, Ramon Villalobos, Tess Fowler.

There are also colorists Kelly Fitzpatrick, Tamra Bonvillain, and Triona Tree Farrel.

Other comic book professionals include Alex de Campi, Amy Chu, Christopher Sebela, Justin Jordan, Kirk Perez, Paul Allor, Ryan Ferrier, and Ulysses Farinas.

Along with the actual comic book creators, the list also includes a number of individuals who cover comic book news for a variety of outlets. They include David Brothers, Kieran Shiach, Rich Johnston, Jude Terror, Joseph Glass, Matthew Santori Griffin, Stephanie Cooke, and Colin Spacetwinks.

The reactions to the list were varied. A number of people praised it, while others didn’t think it was a good idea.

Others wanted to add more people to the list.

Twitter user @YellowFlashGuy explained one of his goals behind the list, “The goal is to get everyone who deserves to be on the list added. It will take time, but trust me, we will get them.”

They then explained their idea behind the list, “Sometimes you gotta fight fire with fire. They use gossip, we use wallets. This is not calling for harassment, this is calling for wallet enforcement.”

They then explain that the people on the list “have caused real damage to people’s careers and personal lives.”

What do you think? Do you think this list is a good idea to combat poor quality comic books? Or do you think there are alternative ways to making comics great again?
