    Talkative?
  1. I don't think so. I was referring to the one shot from the original art, sometimes called Artists editions. I think that's IDW's brand for them. This, I think, was published by Graffiti, which I believe calls them Gallery editions.
  2. Agree that it was underappreciated in its time, but it wasn't UNappreciated. There was a fair amount of grumbling about the art style, if I recall correctly. But there was also a fair amount of people who recognized it as an important work, one that gave Miller and DC to continue pushing the boundaries of both storytelling and production values.
  3. Not interested in your recollection. Unless you can back it up with evidence. As for how many people share my opinion on its quality, should I ask those who bought the Absolute edition or the Gallery edition?
  4. I also lived through both. So my witness testimony cancels yours. I also have the press kit DC sent out promoting Ronin as one of its first TPBs. Due to, y'know, failure.
  5. Notice the complete lack of substantiation here? Yeah. That.

    And they say there are no heroes any more.

    Again, wanting to prove you are diverse means you are not doing it just for the sake of being diverse. Not semantic; they had reasons for it.
  9. Marvel's Retailer Breakfast falls off the rails

    If you claim someone is doing something JUST for the sake of doing something, you are explicitly ruling out other factors. That's what just means. You are making my argument, that Marvel obviously had ends it wanted to achieve and PR was a means.

    Here's how causality works. When you claim someone is doing something "just for the sake of" something else, you're saying there is no other reason to do it. When you then helpfully add the phrase, "as it's good PR," you're identifying good PR as the reason for doing it. Which means they're not doing it just for the sake of diversity.

    Saying someone is doing X just for the sake of doing X is tacitly admitting you don't know why they're doing it. So I told you.

    Diversity isn't for the sake of diversity. It's for the sake of people.
  13. Moderns that are COOLING on EBAY...

    Never seen Dillon stuff I didn't enjoy the hell out of. Visually, at least.
  14. I confess I'd rather the good deals go to people who are already knowledgeable based on their own investment of time and love in the hobby and the artform.
