So let’s talk about Chuck Dixon and why he fails as both a writer and a human being.
I read Dixon’s work for years long before I learned how outspoken he is about his hatred and disdain for LGBTQs and people of color.
Even way back yonder I always felt his work to be mediocre at best and never understood why he received all the hype he got: Gail Simone’s run of the Birds of Prey was far superior and what he did to Outsiders was unforgivable.
Needless to say I had misgivings about Dixon penning Grifter & Midnighter but against my better judgment I decided to give the miniseries a chance. After all, maybe Dixon would surprise me, in a positive way.
The verdict: trust your instincts.
