    Are you saying that people dont pitch books?


    Sidenote. Roland , dont bother with some of those guys. More often than not I see people just use you as a back up for a particular talking point. I aint saying you dont push buttons, but for most part, you are calm.

    Its actually pretty rational. People see that only a few "make it" or "allowed to shine", and they dont want you taking their spot.To have the level of hope and positivity to believe that you can change that is rare, and should be celebrated.

    That comic was a half-ass movie pitch. He was trying to get in on the "comic-to-movie" trend.

    Nah, that's a little too defeatist for my taste. A 20 year old beef can't be the be-all-end-all of such ventures. I remember someone (McDuffie probably) writing in an early Milestone editorial about how some of the black comic artists from the 70s like Ron Wilson and Kerry Gammill would get together and talk about making a black comic company. Fast forward a couple decades and McDuffie, Priest and the rest actually made one. At some point in the future, someone else has to take the lessons learned so far (no crappy deals with the big 2, for one) and take it even further. Once I win the megamillions, it'll be me that does it heh heh.

    That's the big hurdle...large scale distribution. The content is already out there.

    In that particular case, it was more of a "sell-out" argument. In other words, the indie community felt that Milestone was an "Uncle Tom" within the industry, disregarding the overall quality of its books because it was married to DC. It wasn't Love and Rockets, to cite an important book by minority creators, and it was superhero-centric, so it must have been compromised in some way. I think we'd all kill for a quality universe like Milestone's these days.

    What's funny and sad is that in a podcast interview Cowan himself said at least damn near everyone talking mess about Milestone were some of the first ones asking for a autograph at conventions and telling him they don't really mean what they said in public

    1st Poster For 'American Promise' (Urgent Conversation On Black Male Achievement In Education)
    News
    by Tambay A. Obenson
    December 19, 2012 7:47 PM

    http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowand...t-in-education

    The point of it all was to focus on America’s troubled education system, and the under-served/under-represented young black boys who are...

    ... twice as likely as whites to be held back in elementary school, three times as likely to be suspended from school, and half as likely to graduate from college.

    And further, the filmmakers have stated that they...

    ... had these startling statistics in mind twelve years ago, when we decided to send our son Idris to a prestigious school in NYC. We turned the camera on ourselves, Idris and his best friend, Seun, in order to make sense of the harsh realities facing black males in today's schools. Twelve years later, Idris and Seun are seniors in high school, and we're now in the midst of our final year of shooting.
