Here's more of the back and forth unedtied:
Clearly you have justified your actions to yourself. Well done.
No, I've defended myself against your petty and erroneous bullshit.
Never in my life have I ever heard it was okay to "Pop" your employee for "acting like a punk". I was a 22 year old kid, who looked up to you. Next to me was my 12 year old brother who looked up to me. Yeah, I'm going to "man up" after being backhanded by my hero in front of my kid brother. I was completely humiliated. The last thing on my mind wasn't to "man up" Hey at least there's a first in that you're actually admitting that you hit me. Good for you.
Let me tell you, Dan, you are and remain a coward. If someone I worked for slapped my hat off my head, I would THROTTLE them. Period. You are taller than me and outweigh me. Man up. What's not to admit too? I smacked you IN PUBLIC DUDE, never denied it and have shared the story a gajillion times. I put this story on the table so you wouldn't have too, God knows you've cried to everyone about this for the last decade. "Rob Liefeld hit me...whaaa" Dude I was 25, you were 18...get over it. You hung around another 3 years, what does that say about you? Good God man, get over it.
No denying that I was a clowny kid. The taser incident did happen. I did write angry messages to Jim. Today, I call Jim a friend and since have apologized to him. Man, I can't believe that you brought up that I use to give Danny a hard time for changing my rocks. Oh, man, I'll burn for that! Funny thing is that Danny and I joke about that often.
Agree on all counts. Good for you that you learned to conduct yourself as a mature adult and people responded in kind to you.
I think you misinterpreted my meaning or perhaps I didn't communicate myself well enough. By following your lead, I mean that I was hanging out with you and not working. AKA goofing off, hanging by the pool..etc. I don't mean that I was trying to be like you. Now it's been 10 years since I've worked with you, and golly, my career is exactly what I want. Reason being is now that I'm not working with you, I do have power over my path. Speaking of which, how's Marat doing. I miss that guy.
Wow a cheap shot at Marat?How completely douchey of you. Marat is wonderful and also controls his own path. He has since the earliest days of Extreme. I am proud to know and work with him and call him friend
Dan, you were blacklisted at Marvel in 2003 and DC wouldn't print your one job for them. Remember I tried to get you work on Shatterstar and you did those Shatterstar drawings and Marvel said no-go. You were forced through absolute rejection to work in storyboards which I think anyone who knows you agrees is a far better fit for you. The truth is you never achieved the career you wanted in comics and now you produce work for Godawful movies like Dragonball. Whoopee. When I ran into you at the comic shop in 03 you whined incessantly about the fact that no one would give you work in comics....come correct man. Honestly you should spend more time apologizing for the craptacular Dragonball movie you worked on...it was far worse than any Extreme comic book your name was on. Yeah, I know "it didn't work out the way you'd hoped..." I got that, but it your Extreme career didn't work out the way you'd hoped either and you've spent 10 years crapping on that. Doesn't Dragonball deserve the same treatment. It failed in front of a much larger audience...
Your spin is all gloss and shine carefully omitting all the grime behind the truth.
To forgive the unrepentant is to draw pictures on water.
You are not now nor have you ever been that deep. Stop reaching.
"You speak of so much regret, i just can't relate."
It's obvious with how magnanimous and hubris filled you've become.
More like blessed and at peace I am.
The truth is that from 2001 to the present with you rooting on your buddy Yellow Hat Guy, you have openly rooted for me to fail and wished that I would receive my "comeuppance". You and your kind have grown more frustrated that it never came. Thus your increased frustration.
You arrived at these boards when you saw that a group was trashing you and you very much desire everyone to love you and when they don't you try hard to change their minds. And here you are.
Not my first time at the rodeo Dan.
