Thanks for the support to everyone, but maybe the comparison to Nazi Germany is a BIT much. smile

Common sense at last! smile

Actually, I moderate it, as I moderate the DC forum as well.

And yet you don't read any new Crossgen or DC comics?

Omar has a list? For what...groceries? Has this guy always been a dweeb? I've known of him for almost 6 years, that's a long time to be such a bitter loser.

I'm going to be guilty of "mind reading" here (according to the Byrne board), but I think the point is why moderate a board on a topic that you apparently have no interest in?

Disclaimer: I have never been to the ORCA CGE and DC boards, so I do not know whether they deal with back issues exclusively or whatnot. But assuming they discuss new issues, which you don't buy any longer (per the "My Era Has Passed" thread), it would seem strange to some (me included) that you would moderate a thread like that.

Unless you get paid to do so, which would make perfect sense.

BTW, Sam, did you track down an issue of JLA/Avengers yet? I would also recommend (if you're still looking for something new to check out) Arrowsmith by Busiek and Pacheco, if you can find it around. Different and interesting.

I was around when Crossgen started over at San Diego a number of years ago and got to know most of those people then. Some of them are still good friends to this day. I have been to the CGE studios a number of times. The thing is that there have been a number of things I have been told by many over there that I can not talk about publicly as it is their business. Many of the things they are going through now I have some ideas what and why, but I can't discuss it nor will I discuss it here. I just let the so called "newshounds" speculate (they are wrong much more than they are right) and that amuses me a great deal. I also have bought most of the CGE product prior to my stopping purchasing new comics. I have been the moderator there for several years.

He would've gone insane from the number of companies he'd have to boycott.
Eclipse, Comico, Now, Kitchen Sink, First, Charlton, etc. Funny how new comics and comics companies keep popping up all the time, but we're all supposed to believe that if CGE goes, there goes the industry right along with it. :rolleyes:

To be a moderator, you don't have to read the books, you only need to enforce the forum rules.

Back when I was a volunteer mod for Interplay's message boards, I moderated the forums for games I had never played, much less owned. It didn't matter because I was only there to enforce the rules...

That wasn't the point, Jake.

And you know it.
