Well, you obviously didn't look very hard. The below comments have been thrown at me more than a few times.
"Well, Maestro, I applaud you for standing by your convictions. One of the pluses of Hudlin's Black Panther is the reminders that there are White comic fans who are threatened by:
1. Black superheroes who aren't laughable failures
2. Black creators who don't think Black culture is inherently "threatening."
Hence, I'm not shocked that such readers may feel "betrayed" that you support the work of Hudlin, whom they consider "too Black" and thus not worthy of writing comics. Heck, I bet Hudlin's critics are the same guys who complained that Milestone was "racist." (On this level, I understand why some many Black-owned companies find the mass market so appealing compared to comic shops.)
So, it's great that you're doing your own thing instead of listening to "fans" who really are hypocrites. That's why your current run on FF is off to a good start with promise of greater adventures ahead.
