The former gray lady of comic book journalism, Bleeding Cool, published an article about a joint venture between Marvel Comics and Northrop Grumman. Bleeding Cool described Northrop Grumman as an arms manufacturer and a maker of weapons.
From the article:
Northrop Grumman is an aerospace company
Not once did the word “aerospace” appear in the article. That’s funny, because that’s what Northrop Grumman is, an aerospace company. They make airplanes.
Here’s a list of some of the aircraft produced by Northrop Grumman:
- A-10 Thunderbolt II
- B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber
- F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet
- F-35 Lightning II
The way the article reads, you’d think Northrop Grumman uses child slave labor to manufacturer AK-47s.
Also from the article:
The article was written by Jude Terror, one of Rich Johnston’s bosses over at Bleeding Cool.
Bleeding Cool use to be a good website
If it wasn’t for the riveting NFL coverage, Bleeding Cool wouldn’t be worth going to.
Marvel Comics announced they are ending their partnership with Northrop Grumman, so there’s nothing to get upset about. Excelsior!
