Poor Ceci is full of itshay & very delusional.
Ceci didn't fabricate any information in his post at all. He simply listed times Byrne has quit jobs along with the very reasons Byrne himself has offered for leaving those jobs.
I wasn't implying that Poor Ceci fabricated all of the accounts mentioned in his post. Read the words again.
The fabrications that I'm talking about are in the exaggerations used to describe
some of the accounts or the lack of a description.
While it would appear that a few Detractors™ are trying to make everything out to be a simple black & white issue, there is far more involved than trying to paint JB as a quitter just because it is public knowledge that there were a few titles that JB abruptly stopped working on.
Whatever the stories may be, each case is different (although, as I mention, some have similarities) & while it is certainly easier (especially for most Detractors™) to blanket everything together as simply quitting, there is more to it than what certain Detractors™ are trying to depict.
Since all of these stories follows the same exact pattern of...
That's what you WANT to believe, but it is inherently untrue, as I say above. There is no EXACT pattern at all. And your easily predictable use of exaggeration proves this.
1. Byrne, the noble creative artist, wants to act only in the interest of his fans and the beloved characters he is writing/ illustrating.
2. Petty megalomaniacal forces intervene. Usually some type of "double cross" is involved.
3. Byrne quits.
At some point, as others have pointed out, one has to look inward and consider, "Maybe it's me!"
To look at nine or ten of these incidents and say, "Aw Man. That poor Byrne sure has rotten luck" is pretty naive.
You (& other delusional fools) see patterns with JB leaving certain projects & therein lies the idiocy.
The patterns are right there in Byrne's own words. You may not like them but there they are. The pattern I described above could be an outline for just about every one of Byrne's own stories detailing how and why he quit the jobs that he did.
It's hard to negate that Byrne has abruptly quit a more than a few gigs. This is fact. Byrne however seems to be of the philosophy that he quit a lot a jobs, but because he feels he had a good reason for doing so, it shouldn't be said that he quits a lot of jobs.
Nobody is trying to negate anything...at least not purposefully so.
There is no question about the quitting part. It's those that are trying to make it seem as though some (or in extremely idiotic cases, all) are a bad thing.
The only link in the chain is JB's leave-taking...
And yet you still seem unwilling to consider that maybe its Byrne who's got the problem.
While I certainly don't agree with all of JB's reasons for quitting certain projects, I don't see it as any sort of problem
