I refer to not purchasing new comics, that does not preclude me from purchasing old comics or talking about old comics which I still love. Of course, you failed to read that part of my post.
You're devoting your time on Comicon to discussing classic comics? Delightful! Let's look at some of the threads you've recently started about those old comics you still love:
"Governor clashes with Senator Lieberman"
"Interesting decision about 9th circuit on recall"
"Democratic Presidential Debate"
"Erik Larsen's invalid criticism of other artists"
"Why is Savage Dragon not a big seller?"
And, of course, this thread. Funny, but I can't remember any old comics about the California recall election or Erik Larsen's critical faculties. Were these backup features in Amazing Fantasy
In fact, I haven't seen any posts about old comics from you at all. You didn't weigh in on "Cancelled Superhero Books I Have Loved," "2005 DC Archives Survey," "Korvac Saga... Avengers used to be so fiesty," "Savage Sword of Conan," "What Golden Age Characters Should Marvel Revisit?", or even the classic goofy "Marvel vs. DC?" debate. According to your Comicon profile, your last five posts, as of this writing, were all to threads about Erik Larsen. None
of your 50 most recent posts have been to threads about classic comics, except for the Neal Adams reprint thread, which you joined only to harass Larsen.
I'd love to see more discussion of old comics on these boards. Why don't you start some?
Norb: looking up old Comicon posts so you don't have to.
