It takes a big man to admit that he made a mistake.
Today, Tony Bedard has proven himself a big man.
From Tony Bedard's personal forum at: Comic Book Resources:
Yeah, folks, this is just a good old fashioned f*ck-up on my part. Sorry.
To be honest, I probably took on too much work over the last year and rushed, uninformed stuff like this crept in. I have no idea where I got the notion that Shado was Connor's mom, but I did think that. I appreciate the mistake being pointed out, and I hope it didn't ruin the rest of the issue.
I recently made another mistake in SUPERGIRL 20, where I said a veteran of the Battle of Mogadishu was a former Marine, when the people who fought that fight were Army Rangers and Delta Force.
These may seem like small errors, but they show a basic ignorance and lack or respect for the facts on my part.
Well, let it never be said that I'm not a fair man.
Therefore, let it be known to all those upon this Internet that I take back my taking back every nice thing I ever said about Tony Bedard from yesterday.
I still hold Mike Carlin or whichever assistant editors dropped the ball on this one responsible but I can highly recommend the Black Canary mini-series and Supergirl again, without any reservation whatsoever.
Now let us never speak of this again until the inevitable corrections which are sure to follow the trade-paperback collection of this storyline.
