    And that's the other thing: he just banjaxed his reputation. Online fandom notices, his peers and potential collaborators noticed, now the wider media noticed. That was dumb.

    Wasn't there the time Harris decided to go and start a mini-feud with Gail Simone and Geoff Johns for a few days for not appropriately grieving over Frank Frazetta's death about two years ago on CBR, when "You'll All Be Sorry" was still around? Yeah. I actually found the thread.

    Well, I think it was that the 'offended' party thought he was talking about them, when he wasn't. It still was a funny thread, and pretty indicative to the level of sycophancy there.

    In that case he was drunk and upset, so I'm not that bothered there. What's his excuse this time round?

    There were few parties that came out of that encounter smelling like roses, really. Trolls were in a blood frenzy, which made it even crazier. Like half that thread was deleted.

    I think he claimed he wasn't drunk when he tweeted that two years ago, somewhere in the thread. So that can't even be used as an excuse.

    People are nominated for awards based on the strength of their work, not their sunny disposition.

    Say what you like about the guy, he can draw a damn funnybook.

    I agree.

    Plus I think with outrages over "Oh noes look what someone famous did!" such as this one,
    I think anyone should always still be mindful of how any 'stars' or 'talents' can be asshole-ish or stupid as much as anyone.
    Or I wouldn't be grasping the mystery or shock to any such myself.

    There will be many rock stars or actors or politicians or tycoons or whatever who could well be utter ass-hats both as shitheels, I'm sure. So why not comic-makers of reasonable acclaim?
    Been called a 'good egg'. Been told to rock, been told to steady myself. Been told to (please) be goin' places.
    Chillingly good stuff besides Mignola, Slint, M, Knut and really big chunks of tinfoil?
    Half sunk in the mud, with one eye showing / a cracked smile and hair still growing /

    DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND! HE'S THE TRUE GEEK HARRIS TALKS ABOUT!!!

    Let's bring those days back, when it was just guys like that! NO FEMALES ALLOWED!

    Well, no fake geek females that are allowed in; the females that are allowed in must first pass an extensive 10 page test on the history of comics (only DC and Marvel, thank you) and than an oral quiz of them telling the history some superhero.
