He was at a con I attended a couple of years ago. He wouldn't sign anything unless you bought it from his table.

He had everything waaaaaay overpriced. He was asking $40 for books you could find for $1 - $2.

 

 

Hard pass.

 

fast way to reduce the number of fans you have.

fair enough.  Why did Ayn except Social Security in her later years? Is that not a hand out? Aren't there members in american politics today that idolize Rand and her silly belief system who want to do away with SS because, (as they reason) it's a government hand out?? Steve's books should sell on their own merit enough for Snyder ( I really though he was a he, but if you say so) to not beg for money? Yes, it's begging. So obviously his books DON'T sell and he's not the creator he believes himself to be that can care for himself. What about the New York case worker that found him dead? So he had a case worker paid for by, yup, probably New York tax payers. Steve being cared for by others.

I've met objectivists before. Never liked a one of em. Maybe you would be an exception. One was a grown adult man at the supermarket bagging groceries. He would never should the F up about objectivism so one day I told him  "Shouldn't you be a Superman not a bag boy? He never spoke to me again. 

But if it works for you fine. And a friendly discussion is better.

Watched your video. You're quoting Angelina Jolie? And that's a good thing? Do you know Angelina Jolie? I've worked 3 decades in Hollywood doing lighting for all manner of projects. I've worked with Jolie numerous times. From Herb Ritts photo shoots when she was no one (with her father, Jon Voit ,I beleive) to the megalomaniac she is today. But's that'a a good thing to be? Just taken' care of yourself! She really had to work hard to get where she is today! Nothing was given to her! It's just so laughable. Since I can't get political here, perhaps I can slip this by: People: If you're trying to get people behind your cause STOP quoting HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES. Ellen DeGeneres IS Donald Trump. They are the same! They're just selling you what you already want to buy. Like Objectivism. Or The right Or the Left.

Sorry everyone. Mod delete if you feel the need. 

its not my video i have no input in it i found it in youtube and thought it explained it well enough, so no im not quoting Angelina Jolie, also i can assure you i am a quiet objectivist, i keep my moral beliefs to myself, i live by them but i dont talk about it, its no ones business but mine, i respect your opinions on the subject, i dont agree with all of it, but i understand. heres the rule of thumb i independently live by,

"one" should live the way he/she feels themselves is morally right in a logical and understandable state for the independents own well being as long as the logical action(s) does not affect other independents lives without the other independents fully understood consent in their own logical state of mind. and i put this concept to work to each respectably. you dont have to follow this concept, yoi dont have to agree, or even regard it, its my personal way i wish to live and that shouldn't affect anyone else but me. i dont like people who scream their views to the world and hate on people who dont agree on the same things. also Ayn Rand was not perfect. she was a human being living by her rules. i respect and honor her but that is nearly all. i dont follow Ayn Rand directly, i just follow her concept.

My wife is a social worker. She deals with women forced from their homes for hellish reasons with nothing. One shoplifted food for one of her children. because they were literally starving to death.  I just see Mr. A. throwing an all black playing card at this poor woman screaming "GUILTY" at her as he shoves her to her death off a high rise building.

Let's leave it. It sounds as if you pick and choose what you like from Objectivism, not accepting things you disagree with. I would't think that would make you an Objectivist just a free thinking person who does indeed think for themselves just as I like things from the right but am not GOP and like things from the left and sure as mess aint a (the other party) 

I've demolished this thread enough. So if you would like to continue in PM that would be fine or you should have the last word here since I had the first words.

In the '90s I was at an LCS signing with Image creators. Had to buy tickets and everything. Well Rob Liefeld shows up 1 1/2 hours late to a 4 hour signing and leaves an hour early. Otherwise, he was pleasant. 

Some other artists stuck around but few people were interested in sketches from that J. S. Campbell guy.

My two cents on Neal Adams. I first encountered Neal at one of Phil Seuling's NY Comic Conventions in the early 70s. Neal was extraordinarily gracious, doing detailed sketches for fans, who surrounded him everywhere he went. Fast forward a few years, after many of those sketches were put up for sale and Neal's original art went missing from DC after he had argued for the return of all art for the artists who had drawn it, Neal wasn't quite as free with his time and talents. I can't blame him for his reaction.

A couple years ago, I was in the men's room on set up day at a con when I witnessed Neal Adams flush the urinal and walk out the door without washing his hands.  Does that count?

Reminds me of an old joke.

A Marine is walking out of a restroom after relieving himself at a urinal, when a Sailor says, "In the Navy they teach us to wash our hands after urinating." The Marine says, "In the Marines they teach us not to pee on our hands."

Sailor should have rebutted with 'even though we dont pee on our hands, they still teach us to wash after handling our junk-'

Who the hell is touching their junk when taking a 'wicked yes'..?

I wash my hands out of courtesy in public, but at home, I have no legitimate reason to.

While at my first official purchase for a commission drawing i got for cgc ty templeton was drawing batman for me and he mocked and laughed at me because i was getting comic book information wrong even though i was praising his work though when he was done with my book he tossed it across the table and said it was done then went on to ignore me when i went to say thank you so i went over to pat broderick next door to draw me firestorm and he answered all the questions ty was refusing to answer about the comic art industry.

And at that same convention i met the artist for king of the hill and when i would ask him questions because i didnt know how anything worked he would only answer things that had a price on them if i asked a question about his passion and what got him to where he was he would just sigh and start talking to the artist next to him had to buy something just to get him to talk to me and take a picture with me live and learn i guess
