…oh man, I actually watched the video…and I really hate this guy.
He’s way too serious, mean-spirited, and long-winded about this stuff. And fuck, THAT VOICE…he’s like the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons come to life, only louder. He is the absolute stereotypical definition of a comic book snob (like the skinny one that’s friends with the fat one)…this really embarrasses me as a comic book snob.
And no video on the internet should ever be 15 minutes long. THAT IS TOO LONG.
Reviewing bad comics (and bad movies) should be an exercise in fun, not in hate. Like what we do here, there’s no personal grievance against comic book creators. The way he shouts about Chuck Austen here it’s like he murdered his father before writing this comic.
Like the review for Uncanny #423…and how he’s jumping over Chuck Austen for being offensive towards cancer patients and ignorant of world religions…like he’s just a shitty comic book writer, take it easy.
And I’m offended at how a self-proclaimed comic book snob doesn’t even know how to hold a comic book correctly.
Although I have to admit it was pretty fun in looking back at some of these comics, with someone that’s just as hateful (actually probably much, much, much more hateful) towards them now as you were when you read them. His hate for these comics makes mine pale in comparison, it’s like I’ve never hated anything in my life standing next to him.
I am vindicated!
