February 16, 2012 12:44 pm You know what this is going to do in the long term? Nothing. I work for the government at a local lake as a Park Ranger and about 3 years ago it was discovered that a very prolific invasive species had been introduced into local lakes. These little pest (quagga mussels to be precise) can totally destroy the plumbing and Eco structure of a given lake. It is a multi million dollar problem up in the great lakes area. Anyways, people were freaking out and they were talking about shutting lakes down and the boaters were up in arms and we spent tens of thousands of dollars running around trying to 'fix' the problem. Now it's 3 years later and nothing has really changed at all. The mussels are still there and we hired a couple of people to 'inspect' boats before they go into the water and after they come out. It was a whole lot of freaking out over nothing. That's what this is. The industry is going to freak out and maybe this years cons will be a little different then previous years but by next year it'll roll back to something akin to normal. If we take to heart what was said by Joe and friends at marvel they're not looking to pursue anyone for doing sketches. It's easy to hate The Man (or Big 2) but in this case I think it's all a bit misplaced. Things will be fine and artists will go back to sketching as soon as the artists start to communicate with each other and Marvel execs start to communicate behind the scenes....and I don't mean a public apology or on Twitter but in that back of the house network that exists within any profession. Relax guys we'll get our sketches back. ;-)
February 16, 2012 12:25 pm Tow of my more favorite disfunctional relationships would have to be the whole Logan/Jean affair and the Hawkeye/Mockingbird relationship/death/marriage thingy. This two relationships always get me coming back for more. I also agree that the Bats and Cats thing is pretty good as well. I agree with the person above who said the Joker, Harly thing freaks me out. Lol.
February 2, 2011 3:58 pm A most excellent article and one I totally understand. I've been writing for the better part of 25 years and never been published in comics or in 'book' form. I totally understand the 'not doing enough' ideas you expressed. Keep trying and keep plugging away if its your dream then it'll happen eventually even if its just one title on one shelf in one comics shop!
