Regardless of what others say here, I do appreciate the fact that you do know how to keep a thread going.

Because people think that if you disagree with them you must be joking. It's narcissism.

A male who doesn't have sex, the Bass must be the new me? A MRIRTE?

Everything you try to accuse Kirkman for, you're seemingly praising Mignola and Dark Horse for by reading their product.

Not to mention you're constantly harping on how anyone could possibly want to do anything creator owned or dare use their own ideas but once again, that's exactly what Hellboy and the BPRD are.

So your whole argument that you used against Image is immediately thrown out the window the second you praise any IP through Dark Horse.

My reasons are because of your constant insistence that creators are "fired" when they leave a book or that detective comics is the "head Batman book" really it's because your a grade A mother fucker at all times.

The "Fat Bob" meme alone keeps me amused, but I'm a simple soul. :-D

Coincidentally, hours before I heard the news about Karen Berger, I had written about Swamp Thing, emphasizing the role of Berger as an editor. Back then, Vertigo didn’t exist, but she still fought hard to have Saga of the Swamp Thing published without the seal of approval of the Comics Code Authority. Almost 30 years ago she was already fighting against censorship and helping creators do what they do best: create in freedom. Surely, her absence will have major repercussions in the American comic book industry and perhaps Vertigo will disappear as an independent imprint. Either way, I’m terribly sad and concerned about all of this. More about this here: http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2012/12/ ... nlace.html
