Whatever problems Crossgen is experiencing, I think you'd be hard pressed to find any freelancers happy over the collapse of a paying market. If Crossgen collapses those are paying gigs that are gone, probably not to return. - There are only so many jobs to go around and reducing their total number is certainly not in the interest of any comics professional.

Crossgen should of course, live up to its commitments, and should be called on it if they don't. That said, Omar's pathological hatred for Crossgen, expressed in overwrought Nazi comparisons and gloating prayers for their downfall is a little mystifying: why would anyone who claims to have the best interests of freelancers at heart pray for the destruction of hundreds of paying comics jobs?

Sam hosts a Crossgen Forum at ORCA, by the way.

I thought he didn't read new comics.

He says a lot of things that don't mean anything.

I keep trying to imagine Omar's obsessiveness if he was there duing the bust up of companies in the late 80s to mid 90s.

He would've gone insane from the number of companies he'd have to boycott.

Because the jobs don't actually pay?

I was there.

I've never bought a Crossgen book, even when they had a money-back garentee, so any "boycott" by me would be meaningless.

Thank you Kevin but Brent is more concerned with his name appearing on The List than he is with the truth.

Hey Korvac, where's that Tucker Carlson quote from, if I may ask?
