Why Won’t People Stop Swiping Mark Millar?

There’s already been plenty of coverage elsewhere of Mark Millar’s hissyfit about getting his idea of Vampires vs. Superheroes “swiped” by the X-Offices. I think Mark’s onto something: just as he introduced the concepts of gay superheroes and “a superhero comic set in the real world”, I see no reason to think he didn’t also create the concept of superheroes fighting vampires. After all, wasn’t he the guy who introduced us to Marvel Zombies? So just how far does this swiping of Millar go? Look below and be horrified!

Shocking! Simply shocking! I’d expect some up-and-comers to rip off a master like Millar, but Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz? John Byrne and Art Adams? Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan? JACK “KING” KIRBY? I’m disappointed in all of them! Why won’t they stop swiping Mark Millar?
