Apparently Kevin Smith cannot write comics

Since the release of this comic:

http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/07/29/worst-of-the-worst-batman-the-widening-gyre-6

is getting some of the worse reviews of the year we all have to assume that Kevin Smith has lost a little of his artistic touch. That comic and the release of some of his latest movies have to have fans wondering what is up with this guy.


Unfortunately, a creator -- any creator, in any creative field -- has to recognize his or her limits, and if he can't, that's what an editor's for. And you eventually come to a point where either the editor has to look at something and decide that it's an unpublishable mess or the creator has to take a step back and ask himself if he really wants his contribution to a 70-year legacy be a story where Batman gets high and pisses himself.
