C.B. Cebulski Kind of Got Away With Some Big Lies, Didn't He?
He was a white guy pretending to be someone Asian to break the rules. Cebulski came forward about all this when he became Marvel's EIC and the company virulently defended him and we all forgot about it. He basically got away with some big lies, as this new comic from The Nib reminds us all. I guess compared to some controversies in the field of comics this was tame as nobody was getting sexually harassed or assaulted, but the whole thing was awkward, weird, and arguably robbed someone who was real (and could have actually been Asian) of getting work at Marvel because Cebulski was breaking rules. It all worked out fine for Cebulski though, so good for him, I guess.
