Speaking of thick skin

Here's a nasty review for the new RSA comic. Not the most fair or impartial of reporting, but to each his own. This guy is probably just REALLY serious about his comics - not my target audience at all.

Experience has told me that when someone says they don't "mean" to be a prick, they mean to be a prick. I'm kind of giddy that RSA has so perturbed Mr. Doane. Hey, if everyone thought my stuff was funny, I'd probably be doing something wrong.

Here's a better plug (scroll down). And here. At least somebody likes me!

Good point on Doane - if he had been entirely indifferent to the work, he wouldn't have felt it so necessary to bash it. Then again, some people just like to have an opinion to have one, even if they don't really believe it. Of course we know that pretentious nitwits who take themselves too seriously...well, this book isn't quite for them.

Hansen, what did you do to piss this guy off? FJ is on the mark -- he's just another pretentious fanboy reviewer (hey, if you can't get in the biz, you become a critic!) Doane is probably not the target audience of the Trailer Park Boys either (he be lame). BTW, I laughed my fat patootie off when I read your latest Snart comic. It's rude and crude -- how can you not love that? I revel in it's vapidity!!! Kind of a departure of sorts from the old days but still glorious, drunk and stupid SNART!!! The art is emaculate too -- reminded my of your Weird Melvin stuff. Like Evan Dorkin??? Please! Doane is humorless AND blind.

finally read the book last night. excellent!!!!! couldn't be happier about it. it's exactly what a ralph snart comic should be; completely random w/ lots of funny/gross stuff inside.

i do long for the days of volumes 2 and 3, which had a serial feel and stretched for a few years of consistent issue after issue. hopefully we see snart stick around for a while this time!

bring back mr. lizard & goot, even though you killed them off! :)

Gone are the days of my cranking out issue after issue month after month. Don't know about Liz and Goot, but then who knows...
