Alright. Just for you anon, since you're new here.. EXECUTION fucking matters. And given the rep of the big 2 in the past, say decade, you should expect clickbaiters, shitposters and the like to assume the worst.
/co/ is also very conservative, not in the political sense, but likes the shit they liked before.
This is clearly a publicity stunt launch. Who knows, the character might actually be good. But I'm certainly not going to bet on it. I'm actually looking forward to this book in an SOP fashion.
There's all sorts of gay characters that are fairly popular with /co/, which have good runs to back them up, or at least shit that isn't garbage.
And even if the character is shit, there's still a chance a future writer picks up the concept and does something good with them.
