Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski has admitted to using the pseudonym "Akira Yoshida" to write multiple comic books in the mid-2000s, as reported Tuesday by Bleeding Cool. This revelation has caused waves on social media, with observers questioning both the business ethics implications of Cebulski using a pen name as a writer while employed as a Marvel editor, and criticism that a Caucasian using a Japanese name to write manga-influenced comics is tantamount to yellowface; especially given the continued lack of diversity among creators in the mainstream North American comic book market. [. . .]

Akira Yoshida is credited as writing several high-profile comic book series between 2004 and 2005, mostly for Marvel but also Dark Horse Comics. Titles by "Yoshida" include Thor: Son of Asgard, Wolverine: Soultaker and Elektra: The Hand for Marvel, and Hellboy: Weird Tales and Conan and the Demons of Khitai for Dark Horse. Cebulski's last credit as Yoshida was Conan and the Demons of Khitai #4, released in early 2006. Right around this time, Cebulski's writing career under his own name began to take off, with comics such as Marvel's New Mangaverse and X-Men Fairy Tales.

LOL...I really liked most of what Akira Yoshida wrote, back in those mid-2000's period, but didn't care for the work of Cebulski.

And this guy is the new Editor in Chief at Marvel?!?!

Yeah I'm probably not coming back
I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
