    It's also used by entitled fanboys who want to claim that comics are dying and the only way to save them is to put Fabian Nicieza back on New Warriors.

    Yeah. It's basically what happens when the target audience gets old enough to be 'the Man'.

    Okay, that gave me a good solid chuckle.

    On the kids-oriented stuff I'm reminded of how awkward I feel as an uncle whenever there'd be kids over and South Park or Cow And Chicken would be on TV in the middle of the day. I love that stuff but not as a thing for kids, so when they visit me I won't allow it on. Which makes me feel like a cross between Stalin and Bill O'Reilly's spouse - whom I don't even know.
    When they point at my sick metal CDs or book collection I go: oh, that's just stuff I like and I offer them cookies.

    Family of mine have little kids growing up on a farm and whenever people mention (like I might) how there'd be pointy metal bits or hazardous stuff lying around, they point out that they want and need their kids (or other people's kids) to be minding their step as much as they could.

    Or car repair men their calendars as adorning autoshops: some might argue that barenaked ladies should be kept hidden at all costs in case of incoming innocent eyes, but I would gaze at those calendars intensely like it'd be biology when I was five.
    But such an encounter or glimpse into the world of car repairers needn't prove traumatic or spoilant too much in hindsight. Since I felt privileged for having been to glance at such, in the full knowledge that such calendars wouldn't be for little boys but for car repairers more rather.

    I've been reading the Marvel Essential Doctor Strange Vol.2 this week. I think I may lack whatever chromosome is required to enjoy Roy Thomas' writing.
    However, I have discovered a new appreciation for the artwork of Dan Adkins and Gene Colan.

    I have no problem with 'The Boys'. I don't think all comics should be for kids. I like lots of non-child suitable stuff in my comics, whether it be 'Criminal', 'From Hell' or 'Ed The Happy Clown'.
    My problem is when mainstream titles for children are produced that are unsuitable for all-ages. And I'm sick of Marvel and DC's attempts to fill the gap with 'kiddie versions'. I've got no problem with something like 'Dark Knight Returns' for instance, but an issue of 'Batman' or 'Spider-Man' should be all-ages accessible.

    seriously Bret, that is fantastic.
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.
