Parting Shot: Steve Niles Speaks Out Against SOPA and Comics Publishers Who Support It
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) spurred controversy in the comics world recently when a list of companies that support the bill hit the internet and named both Marvel Entertainment and DC Comics parent company Time Warner as pro-SOPA. Comics writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) spoke out against the apparent Big Two support for the bill today in a series of tweets, criticizing both the legislation and the lack of outrage he perceived from both comics fans and professionals. Marvel Comics declined to comment on the topic to ComicsAlliance, and a request to DC Comics is pending. Stay tuned for more coverage to come, and learn more about what the disturbingly far-reaching bill could mean for the internet and you at Cnet, Kotaku, and Gizmodo.
