18. The only book of his that I've read was "Ender's Game"

I actually loved it a whole lot. Heck, I even found its message to be a very sweet, melancholy, one...I was sad to learn about his views. However, for the most part, he seems able to keep his horrid views from interfering with his writing. So, I have mixed feelings on this news. On the one hand, I'm always glad when a racist/homophobe/anti-semite/misogynist/etc. is called out for it. As far as I'm concerned, these views need to become steeped in as much infamy as possible.

And yet...

The guy is a pretty good writer, from what I've read. So, the idea of him having his creativity stifled by society because he's a rotten-to-the-core ass-hole makes me, well...uncertain. Should he go on to write the comics anyway, I'm pretty sure that this backlash will make editors HEAVILY weary of any homophobia that could leak into the comics and react accordingly. With that in mind, I'd kind've be interested in seeing what his ideas are for Superman.

And, if any of his comics are shown to have homophobic undertones, well, get rid of him and make a sincere public apology. That's just the way I see it. Of course, with this backlash, there's a good chance that the Superman comics are going to go down in sales if they keep OSC at the helm, so...we'll just have to see where this goes.
