To any and all LGBT Zenescope readers out there.
BOYCOT ALL OF THEIR BOOKS.
Do not give Zenescope a single cent of your money EVER AGAIN.
A little over a year ago, before leaving Zenescope, Pat Shand(of Destiny, NY) gave two of Robyn Hoods greatest characters, Marian Quinn and Sam Cavender a perfect send off, having the two of them get married, and then move away to like quietly.
He did this so these two beautiful women wouldn’t be put through some kind of hell by Zenescope’s other writers.
Then the current Robyn Hood mini came out, Robyn Hood the Curse. And within the first few pages, Marian and Sam perform a spell which throws Sam’s soul I guess, to a far far away universe that is basically a horrifying hellscape, and deposits a horrible lovecraftian beast in her body.
All through the mini I hoped, I prayed that they would have a happy ending and Sam would be saved.
Well, I just read the final issue, and honestly I felt like throwing up after I was done, I honestly couldn’t stop crying for almost half an hour and thinking about all this now as I write this warning is making my eyes start to water again.
Cause not only do they end the mini, with Sam, permanently trapped in that hell universe forever, but the last lines in the issue are Marian asking Robyn if she thinks she’ll ever see Sam again, and Robyn answers with I know she means a lot to you, But I sure as hell hope not….
I’m honestly just, it’s beyond words how absolutely disgusting this was, literally the only two lgbt characters in all of Zenescope, one of the few Married LGBT couples in all comics. And Zenescope doesn’t just see fit to split them up, no, that’s not enough for them, no, they have to leave one of them trapped in a hell world full of monsters at the other end of the universe.
Please, please, if you ever spend any money on Zenescope, any money at all, Please STOP right now. Never spend another cent on this disgusting company. They don’t deserve another cent after this bullshit….
EDIT: I just heard from Pat Shand himself. Apparently Zenescope did not like his Sam/Marian storyline, and he is 100 percent sure that they wrote this out of spite for his refusing to end them himself and instead writing them a happy ending before leaving.
So yeah, Zenescope are nothing but a bunch of petty homophobic pieces of shit who ruin one of the few wlw relationships in comics out of spite to get back at someone who quit. FUCK THEM
