Well, *somebody* had to take Queen's side.



Source: Twitter

Ever the internet contrarian, DC Comics artist Patrick Zircher took to Twitter to defend Randy Queen, the old school Image artist who made headlines this week when he used bogus DMCA takedown requests to remove blog posts making fun of his 1990s Rob Liefeld copycat art, which Queen backed down on earlier today. "I was on Randy Queen's side the whole time," Zircher tweeted, adding, "It basically boils down to: side 1) an artist and side 2) someone who ridicules his work. Everything else was besides the point."

Zircher's stance against art criticism is well known. Back in May, he went on a several day tirade arguing with anyone on the internet who criticized DC's weekly Future's End series, on which he is one of the artists. That episode included a battle with fellow DC Comics creator Gail Simone, who argued that it was possible to work for a company while respectfully disagreeing with some of its decisions. Unmoved, Zircher accused Simone of creating a negative atmosphere and called some of Simone's followers "batshit insane" before deleting some of his tweets. He then called himself a "target" because of his "active interaction" on Twitter. Read about that whole confusing incident here.

"There is a love to tear things down that some people possess," said Zircher in a follow-up to his Randy Queen support tweets. Look for Zircher's art on DC's upcoming adaptation of Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People," in stores this Fall.

UPDATE: Zircher had some choice words for Outhouse Editor in Chief Christian Hoffer as well:

 

 

We'll get back to him as soon as we look up what "puerile" means. We're assuming "fantastic and deserving of next year's Eisner," but we want to make sure before thanking him.

Whenever someone tries to say something isn't funny I either have two thoughts - 1. Not everyone finds the same stuff funny, so one opinion means jack shit when something is finding success and/or 2. Someone just isn't bright enough to get the humor. Both may apply in this situation.

This dude hates Kickstarters, so it's no surprise that he hates the only articles I officially write for the site.

I'd be insulted by him, but him and his art style are so forgettable, I've forgotten exactly what it is we're talking about.

On the other hand, he's given us a great tagline for September after our rebranding is done.

:lol:

I half expect him to sign up for an account just to come in here and complain about people criticizing his criticism of other people's criticism of somebody else's work.

Something puerile, unfunny, and sophomoric. Probably moronic too.

That would be downright puerile of him.

How dare he insult the Outhouse like that. The Outhouse is many things, but unfunny is most certainly not one of them.
