  1. I hope that whatever happens he sticks in there....

    I hope that whatever happens he sticks in there. Maybe this project isn't the one that hits it big, but it might give him enough recognition that his next one does.
  2. His primary income is a $750 a month Social...

    His primary income is a $750 a month Social Security Disability check, and Facebook ads are expensive. He'd starve to death before he saw any difference.

    Another big problem with Facebook ads is...

    "Today I Learned" Thread

    Did you learn a life lesson today? Good or bad, put them here and we'll discuss our mistakes and successes.

    Today I learned that even if you don't opt in to your bank's overdraft protection...
  4. People ruin everything.

    People ruin everything.
  5. I don't think they'll have a problem with it, but...

    I don't think they'll have a problem with it, but I also don't think there's a lot of overlap between the people that would eagerly buy it and people who are calling for more diversity in comics. I...
  6. Avengers Vs. X-Men was actually just a big fight...

    Avengers Vs. X-Men was actually just a big fight between the Avengers and X-Men. I think it's pretty balanced between the two teams, and important if you want to understand how the X-Men end up in...
  7. Chuck is one of the best writers working in...

    Chuck is one of the best writers working in comics, certainly one of my favorite Batman writers. It would be nice if more editors had the maturity to take the Denny O'Neill approach mentioned in the...
  8. Crawford was shot because someone saw him...

    Crawford was shot because someone saw him carrying a toy gun and immediately concocted a racist paranoid fantasy, which was reported to police who were ready and willing to believe and act on it....
  9. I mean, you know the reason.

    I mean, you know the reason.
  10. One thread that keeps turning up is that we...

    One thread that keeps turning up is that we should assume that even though the Ferguson department is corrupt, maybe Wilson was some shining light of it and above it all. Not especially likely since...
  11. Bullshit. I'm a big guy, should I go down and...

    Bullshit. I'm a big guy, should I go down and register myself as a weapon? It might impress girls, I guess.
  12. To be fair, I don't think the people who asked...

    To be fair, I don't think the people who asked for more realistic diverse characters were really hoping for a guy to come along and say "I've created a multi-racial bisexual chick that just looooves...
  13. True. Hell, sometimes quality hurts, because then...

    True. Hell, sometimes quality hurts, because then your work gets a reputation for being highbrow or artistic or other things that aren't mainstream.
  14. I personally don't like this particular comic,...

    I personally don't like this particular comic, it's kind of a creepy story about a serial killer and despite it getting good reviews I didn't feel it was that well told or authentic feeling. Like cgh...
  15. Or he might have suddenly decided to hang himself...

    Or he might have suddenly decided to hang himself in his cell. Or shoot himself while handcuffed in a squad car. You know, like they do.
  16. Two stories today. Here's a white guy who got...

    Two stories today.

    Here's a white guy who got so high or crazy that he stripped naked and went absolutely, violently apeshit and attacked cars, cop cars, and cops at a festival. Was wrestled down...

    Puma, I also had three, unless one didn't count for some reason.
  18. Which firsthand eyewitnesses were significantly...

    Which firsthand eyewitnesses were significantly contradictory? How does the autopsy prove them wrong? It says he could either have been running or surrendering.
  19. Because of the corruption in Ferguson and the...

    Because of the corruption in Ferguson and the fact that it's contradicted by multiple eyewitnesses.
  20. That was, of course, a premeditated act of...

    That was, of course, a premeditated act of terrorism. Not nearly the same thing as attacking a cop so seriously you must be killed during a routine stop.
  21. Take the gun out of it. Sober, mentally competent...

    Take the gun out of it. Sober, mentally competent white people not wanted for major crimes don't suddenly attack and force police officers to kill them on a routine basis. You can't provide proof...
  22. So you were just making up nonsense that you...

    So you were just making up nonsense that you can't back up, then. Okay.
  23. I'm not saying he went out that day planning to...

    I'm not saying he went out that day planning to kill a black kid. But from the eyewitness accounts it seems like he was quick to take that route after Brown pissed him off. That's because he belongs...

    It's not extreme. Attacking a cop and going for a cop's gun, for anyone but especially for a black male, is literally suicidal. You're positing that Mike Brown decided he'd rather die than get popped...

    Even when male writers have the best intention when writing about the rape of women, sometimes what comes out is wrong or misguided. When they have the worst intentions, like the rape of Sue Dibney...
