You just referred to American Vampire as a 'Hipster Mixtape Book'.



Yes, I'm describing the book as a hipster mixtape, not calling the book itself a hipster. As in the book is like a mixtape created by a hipster, because it mixes together a bunch of hipster favorite genres and cliches. Nowhere did I say that the book itself is a hipster, that would be ridiculous.

Now you're rivalling VS for pedantry, you know what I mean.

In what world can both Superboy and American Vampire be aimed at hipsters? I think it's time for me to revive that 'What exactly is a Hipster comic?' thread, because your claims are mad to say the least, at some point, you have to accept that some things are enjoyed at face value and not with a hipster veneer of irony, American Vampire was co-created and co-written by Stephen King, a man who knows his vampires and his traditional horror, he is not a hipster. Superboy is a traditional superhero comic with traditional elements, not very hipsterish either.

I think you're just using it as a catch-all term for anything you don't like.

I don't know what you mean. You claimed I was calling the book a hipster, and I pointed out that it's not possible for an inanimate object to have personality traits or characteristics (except maybe in DC comics, where you could have Superbook). You then responded by insisting I did indeed call the book a hipster, and I carefully explained the difference.

There are things that a hipster likes because they are hip (indie comics), and there are things that a hipster likes because they are ironically awesome (goofy superboy comics). It's certainly possible for both to be directed at Hipsters, especially when the latter is being produced by a beloved hipster writer of hipster indie comics.

I think you're just using it as a catch-all term for anything you don't like.


I think that's how you're using "Pendantic."

So how does American Vampire fit into this Hipster paradigm? It's neither an Indie book nor goofy and ironic. It's straight-up horror.

This current arc is not a Western, it's a Vampire story that's set in the past rather than the present.

Hey if I wanted to make a call for people to cover, should I do it here (newstand), the writers forum or the asylum?

I may be able to cover a couple things, but I will more than likely be busy with like actual work and shit.
