@Birdseye, you are Soooo wrong. Before entering the conversation, you really need to do a bit more research about Land's work, and see how the criticism was weighed against him.
Yeah, I think I agree with what was said on the majority of this show. Like the guys, it's really just personal artistic taste that varies from person to person. But the line is very clear for those who trace, copy, steal, or use photos.
The problem is that for big companies like Marvel, this is a big economic investment. Not some artistic endeavour. And when those in charge are friends with those who steal pictures not theirs, problems, egos, legality and everything else comes into play.
So assuming everyone is an 'adult', people know what's being done. No one is stupid. But the arguments come up when the a-*&^%$, get all uppity, and defensive about themselves or a friend who may use such techniques and then the name calling starts. So, really, I think the only 'debate' going on nowadays, is when someone thinks that they are legally protecting someone or themselves, by flat out denying or lying about it, and not admitting to the truth, but making a general mess about the whole deal and calling out accusers for things unrelated to the truth.
And you guys are right, since there have been no major lawsuits (yet), this argument is limited to it's seriousness and scope. But till then, when this sort of thing shuts down internet boards because of certain influences, etc, people will just be waiting to see how serious their accusations will be.
Good reviews guys, but I balked when you all basically dismissed the guy who was calling out Boom on their mistake on the Die Hard book. I mean, yeah, it could've been a common mistake, but comeon, I mean, if you are a real fan of that stuff, the error is pretty glaring!
And yeah, Conor addressed it and all, but I mean, you guys went off on how Bucky was depicted in his recent book so it's really odd that something like an error of that magnitude on a significant character is not something that you could relate to.
Great ep guys! :)
The new guy did pretty good....it's odd how easily you guys can be replaced.... jk. ;P
But yeah, I keep hearing great things about that Brave & Bold WW issue and now I must get it! Thanks.
