You call me pretentious, when you're the one defending this piece of shit!

And much like your silly man love for Bendis, I have silly man love for Batman and will defend even mediocre stories if I so choose.


I don't google Bendis at all!

I just see a lot of wrong assessments of his work, and set the record straight. The Bendis bashing I object to is not really a matter of taste, but it's a matter of getting facts wrong.

you have jumped on me when I wasn't bashing him and I don't (for the most part, except to fuck with you) that is where I think you are pretentious, sometimes you come off like Herald when it comes to Bendis... just saying. So the facts are wrong. State the facts and leave if you don't like the conversation don't run around in circular arguments with people that just don't like him.

I do state facts. I listed the arc lengths of Bendis' New Avengers, and showed how they varied widely, and you just made fun of me!

I can't win.

And I feel it's better to be a positive Herald, defending something.

I can't help it, he really nailed it summing up R.I.P., though. And your pretensiousness. Like how you always say you used to be a chef and not a cook or galley slave. :roll:

The bulk of this issue is picking up threads from the first volume, just a little of it deals with Head Games stuff.

In the thread you are talking about, I dropped the point, even conceded to you and you kept on with your little bitch Twig in tow.

We're all pretentious we read comics and expect everyone feel the same way about them as we do and will argue the point to point. Hell we, here in this thread, are the worst of the bunch. We are like Pretentious anonymous, except we forgot the private meeting part.
