Exactly what I was going to suggest :lol:

I actually remember a few years ago when he told me (on Twitter) that he liked the site (but not the name) in response to me telling him I like his work (which I do).

That was back in the days of Character Spotlight and Comics You Should Be Reading and things like that (by "things like that," I mean "still kissing corporate ass trying to curry favor with publishers"). Before the New News Initiative and snarky humor.

I can see it now: The banner reads "Your work at Outhousers is puerile, unfunny, and sophomoric. The work is moronic." - Patrick Zircher

It'd be like the late Maurice Sendak's quote for one of Colbert's books, "The sad thing is, I like it." Except, y'know...less meaningful.

If the initial remarks about Randy Queen's work were anything like this (more insulting, antagonistic), I could see/understand Queen getting upset. I could see someone defending his actions (largely because I've encountered a lot of ass-wipes in my time, mostly but not exclusively online). But what Queen did was over the line, and at least he eventually admitted he was wrong (even if to a degree).

However, if they were actual, insightful criticisms about the fundamentals of the image(s), and NOT insults like Zicher has delved to lobbing...then these jokers wouldn't have a leg to stand on if they paired up and used a dinette set.

If Zircher heard what I have to say about today's comics, he'd have lots to work with :lol:

Somebody might want to get on the fact that DC appears to be hiring 13 year olds.

I'm the guy Zircher was insulting in the "Zirchercustomers" image. I was a fan of his prior to his pro-Queen hissy fit, and frankly I had no idea he was this much of a creep. Knowing now how entitled and hateful he is...yeah, I won't be bothering with anything he does anymore. I don't want to support jerks, especially those who think DMCA abuses and bogus legal threats are fine and dandy.

This is too bad because I like this guy's work, I have a soft spot for anybody who worked on the original New Warriors series.

Nope, that would require everyone accepting permissions or something and more code.

I figured on the 'more code' part, but it was an interesting thought. :)

Clearly, Zircher needs to spend a moment and google "Streisand Effect"....or "Union Street Guest House". Somebody needs to sign him up for How the Internet works 101

Two small points with this story. "Patrick Zircher took to Twitter to defend Randy Queen" implies that he wasn't on Twitter at some point, which is impossible. Patrick Zircher is on Twitter approximately 24 hours a day, a conservative estimate. Also some of Gail Simone's followers are "batshit insane." PZ's got as much right to say so as the Tumblr girls had to criticize Queen's art.



Gail Simone is batshit insane. But then, given what she's worked on at DC and that she worked at DC... :P

Signed, a man often called catshit insane... behind his back... but I hear you.

I agree, his art is actually good whenever I've seen it in the books I buy.

But between this and the Waid thing he comes across as pretty arrogant.
