    the book really is a team effort. I know Roy and Graham talk quite a lot when he's doing issues.

    Graham is, as I understand, about half way through his planned story arc.

    oh, that's really interesting how none of you guys have ever created anything... interesting. (not really)
  3. I was just curious if any of you actually created...

    I was just curious if any of you actually created content. my feelings on it are mine, and it's not really your place to suggest how I should feel.
  4. I'm talking the different sides of the argument....

    I'm talking the different sides of the argument. I'm not agreeing with anyone or anything, I'm simply stating the arguments. I was interested in the conversation, but I just keep getting called a...

    you should really read more of my posts. like the ones where I stress that I go out of my way to support the little guys, and work that I like.
    just 3 days ago I ordered a physical CD from a guy...

    what does the lack of risk have to do with the evidence?
  7. well look, Paolo and Neil have both put their...

    well look, Paolo and Neil have both put their thoughts out there more articulately than I, but the point is, piracy didn't cost them sales, it got them increased sales.

    so we can all sit here and...
  8. but she's losing what? there's no solid anything...

    but she's losing what? there's no solid anything to base the 'loss' on. sure, maybe some of those downloads would have been sales, but you can't begin to try and quantify that, because piracy does...
  9. I am who you asked. I'd rather have good...

    I am who you asked. I'd rather have good storytelling over flashy sets. my point was more that good storytelling doesn't require flashy sets. I couldn't care less about Game of Thrones, so that's a...
  10. one of my favorite movies was made by a complete...

    one of my favorite movies was made by a complete nobody and his friends for 6K, I think. it had good storytelling. it didn't need flash, or 'sets' or effects, because it was busier telling a story. ...

    but this thread is occupied by a few people who are more interested in stating time and again that it is illegal and we are wrong for something-something-I-already-stopped-reading.

    Gaiman and...

    this thread got crazy. Phil is kinda nutty.

    I think the interesting thing will be what happens if piracy were actually stopped. (it won't be) will people start buying more stuff? will sales...

    in mainstream comics almost nobody does it. almost nobody has.

    I'm surprised the comics news circuit hasn't made a bigger deal about it.
  14. is that coming out in 2013? cool.

    is that coming out in 2013? cool.
  15. of course they are, penalizing 8,720,000 people...

    of course they are, penalizing 8,720,000 people across the world is ridiculous. what about roommates? Dave did the downloading, but it's my computer, or internet account. or on a neighbors wifi, or...
  16. the reality of the situation is they aren't going...

    the reality of the situation is they aren't going to imprison 8,720,000 people for downloading movies. the prison system in America alone is overcrowded and underfunded. fines is a much better use of...

    well, first of all, I'm not justifying it. I don't have to justify anything to anyone. I'm discussing the whys of piracy. that's what I'm interested in. not all of the reasons I stated are even my...

    hey, Plawsky, I appreciate you bothering to answer, but I'm probably not going to actually reply to any of your points. just fair warning.

    if you want to keep parroting the "it's illegal" line...

    being part Indian, isn't he technically Asian?

    I think Iron-Man 3 looked the most interesting.
  20. no, I think actors and directors are wildly...

    no, I think actors and directors are wildly overpaid. it is amounts of money that nobody needs. they jsut don't need that kind of money, and if that guy or girl having such an excess is why it cost...
  21. I'm not arguing that. I know things cost money,...

    I'm not arguing that. I know things cost money, but I don't think they need to cost what is spent these days.

    also, holy shit, I've gone way off track, but that's the nature of conversation.. I've...
  22. who's hindering? Louie did exactly what everyone...

    who's hindering? Louie did exactly what everyone told him not to do. they literally told him to not release it with multi download, DRM Free, and streaming. he'd fail or whatever.
    the truth is,...
  23. well, record companies, movie makers, comic...

    well, record companies, movie makers, comic publishers and so on, all decided what a product was worth.

    I didn't say Louie's product shouldn't make that money, I just thought it was rad that he...

    why isn't it my call? who needs a million dollars?

    and you're right, it is the rank and file. the hoi polloi. my friends who own a great local music store. a book store. a comic store. a video...
