Both Monique and I are VERY PROUD of our little scifi, monsters-run-amok, alien invasion adventure, thank you very much.
Pleased to meet you Darryl. Those six little pages were nicely done -- which is why I started wondering about the credits, since Ole' Stinky didn't see fit to put up the credits anywhere reasonable. Good luck to you both! (And are you on ComicSpace yet? Get thee hence! And then add me as a friend!)
Never mind. I just ran over there and did it myself. Both you & Monique.

Hi Sarah. I actually just emailed a "thank you" to you with a GAAK link so that you can check GAAK out to date. Those pages at the MMC site have been there for a dogs age.
And yeah, I'm at comicspace too.

Oh GOD! Rick Olney! Boy is that a name I hoped to never hear again. Doc and Ian, please feel free to post any and all info on my issues with Rick as many of the minor details escape me. (and I miss you two as well ) All I know is that the end result was that I was afraid to go to the Pittsburgh comic-con by myself as Rick had hinted that he would "see me there". I was so nervous that I told a few of my fellow small pressers in the area that if they heard me yell, to come running.
Rick is sick and unbalanced. He went from promoting my book for his show to trying to convince everyone I was a no talent bitch from Canada who obviously had a stash of cash that enabled me to travel around to conventions at my leisure. (if you looked at my bank account, you'd know how FAR from the truth THAT is! lol)
He said terrible things about my husband, about my friends, and turned several online pals into enemies. I NEVER had enemies until I met Rick.
I think his hatred for me began when he posted a scathing comment about the Wizard World convention and stated that any small press or Indy creator who goes there is an idiot.
I was a mod at the time over at the SPA and I either deleted his whole comment or edited it, I can't remember, then I pmed him and said he can't say things like that he was insulting a whole community that was dedicated to promoting small press and Indy creators. And it went from there
Again, I don't remember details, but it was bad, so bad my husband and I talked about getting off the convention circuit for a while until things with Rick cooled down.
How sad is that?!
I'm sad to see how many people his warped mind has affected, but the one good thing is that this thread will alert a whole bunch of people about this man. I hope he never works in comics again, gets some serious medical attention and lives a long and happy life in his own house where he's not allowed to get on the internet.
Good for you Gail for getting this started.
I just want to be clear on this issue after 119 pages. So what you people are saying is that it is recommended NOT to have business dealings with one Mr. Rick Olney?
That somehow seemed really funny in my head.
Joanne, after spending about three weeks moderating his posting on Chuck Dixon's board at Dixonverse, I really understand your feeling! He is, literally, toxic to the psyche, especially when you have to deal with him pretty much by yourself. Even after we banned him from posting on Dixonverse, it took a week to get him out of my system, as it were. Fortunately, it helped that I had assistant moderators and Chuck to talk to - to vent to, and then move on to other subjects.
Hopefully, because of this thread, and other discussions on the Net, no one will ever again have to fear going to a con because he might be there to corner them. I'm beginning to think that one would be able to find a contra-Olney co-hort at any con, now. And of course, the Huffy-Puffy has been exposed as the big bag of gas that he really is, so he shouldn't be quite as alarming any more.

Well, that's one more person who has nothing good to say about Rick Olney. Maybe he really IS the 'most hated man in comics,' as he so proudly proclaims.
Having met Joanne, I find this even more revolting. A nicer person you could not find in a month of searching.
On the other hand, let me highly recommend Joanne's excellent book...it really is a delight on every level. I had a blast with it and lost my copies when I moved my comics.
Yikes, it's like a never-ending well of bad will this guy has created.
