Finally, Jason and I have been concerned about insulting creators. Whether or not I like the art of Ron Lim has nothing to do with whether or not I like the man himself; how could I say whether or not I like him, since I don’t know him. When commenting on a creative endeavor like a comic, sometimes the work and the creator behind the work both become subjects of derision during the discussion. Jason and I have both made some negative (some may say snarky) comments about the work of certain creators in passing on the blog, but we try to focus on the work and not the person. Hopefully our readers will keep us honest in the future, as we begin to start doing some actual comics reviews.
Very, very wrong way: This is so wrong, it’s almost unbelievable, as a fan takes issue with Tony Lee’s writing skills:
And it gets worse – this was an out of date address this despicable little person found and sent the parcel to. Tony did stay in it once, but not any more – someone of his acquaintance does still live there (Tony wisely doesn’t say what their relationship is to him – friend, family – because he is trying not to identify them). And they thought I better open it and send it on to him. And among the bile of negative words and copied reviews and criticisms this disgusting little creep wiped their bum on it. No, I’m not kidding, not making some bad taste pun on the phrase ‘crap writing’, this loathsome little punk coated it with excrement. And then sent it to someone in the mail to open.
It’s only lines on paper, folks.
