"Someone" told me to brace myself over some internet group chat going on about what can be done about me. he seemed rather taken aback that I wasn't shocked!
So part of the comments shared by some of those "really nice guys" of UK comics and passed along to me by someone I can't name for obvious reasons!
"We all know the con organisers and if we keep chipping away we'll make sure the twatt never gets his much sought after table to sell his crap"
The "twatt" by-the-by, is me.
No such thing as a "UK comics Mafia"? They've helped destroy UK comics and try to pitch themselves the golden boys of comics to be admired and worshipped. Ask me again WHY I think the UK is dead comics-wise....
On the lighter side of things the new trend amongst former comic 'die-hard fans' has emerged. Live reviews of comics are in the minority now. The "New Thing" is watching movies or TV programmes live -via Google chat where 3-4 people link up via video- so we can get their comments and views and even outrage at the way something was done. We don't get to see the programme or movie just the, uh, 'reviewers' sitting there. Some really do need to improve the decor of their basements/rooms because spending 2+ hours looking at them...well, I sort of went comatose.
But it does get..."better" -reviews and thoughts on comic books series...from 30+ years ago. Yeah, everyone linked up and totally talking crap and confused because 30+ years ago they weren't even born so "don't get all this 1980s doom and gloom war stuff". Right.
All very annoying -almost as annoying as the comment: "Until, say 2004, comics were not very original -Marvel and DC have thrown continuity out the windows and the reboots make comics fresh!" I'm assuming that the person who said that has a mental illness. He is talking about comics being "throw-away" -every time a new reboot comes in get rid of that old crap and buy the new. This is why comics are in trouble: there is no emotional investment in characters or titles any more.
No, I just can't write about it. Pointless.
Anyway, back to decorating.
