->''"You could say that any Franchise/{{Batman}} fan writing a Batman comic is writing fan fiction."''
-->-- '''Creator/NeilGaiman'''

->There is a large nostalgic component in there and there's nothing wrong with it. But if those people then begin to influence the books themselves or increasingly the movies or the television series then they will want their story to refer to stories that they remember. It becomes very incestuous and over a few decades you get a very limited dwindling gene pool. And you get stories that have become weak through inbreeding.
-->-- '''Creator/AlanMoore''', [[http://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/jul/25/alan-moore-league-extraordinary-gentlemen Guardian interview]]

->The trouble is, in my opinion, that the fans have taken over the comic books. They're comic fans, they've grown up on comic books, some of them have read nothing but comic books. They are writing comic books and drawing comic books ''for'' other comic-book fans to enjoy, with [[Main/ContinuityPorn a lot of little fan references and fan jokes and fan names and characters in the background]]; and so they say the [[{{Main/CosmicKeystone}} Cosmic Cube]] has reappeared and all the comic-book fans get a tingle because they know what the Cosmic Cube is and what the Cosmic Cube does. But a person picking up a comic book for the first time, the reference to the Cosmic Cube is going to go right past him.

->I even wrote a script! Let's see, uh... (''looks at paper'') "[[ObscurusLupa Lupa]] and 90's Kid start making out." Oh, wait, that's my fanfiction. (''looks at another paper'') Ah, here it is! "90's Kid and Lupa start making out!"
-->-- '''[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall 90's Kid]]''', WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic review of ''Film/SimonSez''

->[[Creator/KevinSmith Smith's]] writing on Batman is marked by nothing so much as a pervasive immaturity. He writes like a 13-year-old in every possible way..trivia and minutiae, the things that every kid obsesses over, are a substitute for storytelling and that all will be forgiven if you [[ContinuityPorn throw some old Catwoman costumes and draw the Batcave with some stuff from the TV show]] in the background.

->I'm starting to wonder if there isn't a single historical event that the Doctor ''wasn't'' present at. As much of a myth as a man.

->[[Wrestling/MissElizabeth Liz's]] problem was that she didn't want to be a pro wrestler. Her $156,000-a-year contract, which was disproportionately huge for the amount of work she did, was for her role as a manage; her contract gave her the right to refuse to get in the ring. Russo kept her around early in his tenure and was constantly trying to get her to strip down to her bra and panties on TV, probably since when he was a wrestling fan growing up in Long Island, she was the biggest sex symbol in the WWF...And then, of course, there was the David-Stacey (Keibler) wedding that, in a [[ShockingSwerve swerve]], never took place, as Stacey revealed that David [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe wasn't the father of her unborn baby]]. By the grace of God, the company went out of business before fans had a chance to hear her [[BrainBleach identify Russo as the dad]], which was the original business plan.\\\
The mere thought of Russo booking an angle that saw him having sex with the hottest girl in the company was annoying enough, but on top of that, Russo had somehow now become the number-one contender for the WCW title.
