Before we get into today’s page, I am happy to announce that Con Season is upon us again!
That’s right, our first show of the year is happening in Seattle this weekend. So, if you happen to be attending Emerald City Comic Con, do stop by Booth #1106 and say Hello, won’t you? Sohmer, Lar, Ari and a whole bunch of books and gear will be there so make sure you are too!
Now, as for today’s page I suppose that it’s fairly obvious that one of the greatest joys for comics fan is, in fact, complaining about comics. Hell, some folks even turn it into a website and make lots… um, a bunch… well, some, money at it. But the important thing to remember is simply this:
We criticize because we love. Really.
