Max Bemis, Eoin Marron, and letterer Taylor Esposito referenced your Alt-Hero Comic in Centipede #4 from Dynamite Comics. Using an alien language, they wrote “Alt-Hero is a joke.” You can see it in the third panel. It’s easier to read if it’s inverted.
It’s ironic that all of the comics pros are afraid to criticize it for fear of making it more popular, and to support it for fear of coming under SJW attack.
