'Ewing cuts ties with Bennett'

Did he have to do it so publicly, that is the question.

It's one thing to disagree with someone, to dislike them even. But when you announce to the Internet that you don't like or agree with with a fellow media body then you know exactly what you are doing when you do so. You know what the consequences will be to yur fellow freelancer and creative.

Al Ewing knew exactly what he was doing. Waiting until his run on the book was over, and only then sticking the knife into Bennet and essentially ending his career in the mainstream, or at least greatly damaging it.

He didn't have to do that, he chose to do that however. And I don't think it reflects well on him...

His followers are aware of Bennetts artwork as is the fan press and he's constantly being asked if he supports it and questions his integrity.

There's also the issue of the fan press to consider.

To frame it like a calculating move is up there IMO with qanon conspiracies.

When you put your money where your mouth is its speaks volumes. Ewing did that which says to me he wanted to definitively put it behind him and give a solid response to all the questions.

Besides as the run ends, if imagine he'd like to get questions about the run instead of his contributors political views. I don't blame him.

As for Bennett as anyone knows he makes TONS off commissions..
