Van Sciver’s latest prediction came in response to a Twitter user who called him a “dummy” for suggesting that DC Comics and Marvel Comics’ injections of liveliness and identity politics have wiped out their sales.

Van Sciver wrote on Twitter, “The problem is that comics don’t make enough money for their parent companies for the workforce that publishing houses require.”

Van Sciver continued, “but it soon became apparent that ‘Hollywood’ could build on what was already created and generate better Batman stories than DC Comics creators could.”

Marvel and DC have turned to Woke Propaganda for their parent companies, for tax breaks and ESG. Sales have plummeted, he emphasized.

That’s what I think is going to happen. I think there’s going to be a lot of pressure to do that. That’s a lot of Debts “.

At the end of 2020, Van Sciver also noted in a YouTube video that he “received advice, by the way, unverifiable advice, I have to say, I don’t know if it’s true or not, but they say DC Comics will shutdown publishing of comics paper in June 2021.”

“I think they just asked for the Mars comics, and I think if that were true, it would be,” he added.
