Good day to you all!
Some months ago DC hired actively outspoken anti-gay writer Orson Scott Card best know for his book series "Ender's Game" to write an up coming book called "Adventures of Superman" When it was announced that Card was writing the book blogs across the web went ablaze with fury. The press around it became so bad that artist Chris Sprouse left the book because the attention it was getting overshadowed the book itself. Some comic book stores took part and said they would either refused to sell it or donate some/all profits to LGBT organizations as protest to DC hiring Card. Ultimately DC took Card off the book and replaced him with Jeff Parker and Chris Samnee so the book could be released at a later date.
1) Do you think it's right for DC to pull a book based on the views of the writer/artist of said book?
2) If you were the owner of a comic book store what would you do? Refuse to sell or donate some/all profits?
3) Do you believe that a writer's personal opinions influence his/her writing to a point where it would "bleed" into the characters he/she wrote either in a negative or positive way?
Thank you all for your answers.
