    I had written a post which I guess I inadvertendly deleted. My vexing with Garry wasn't that he held a different opinion but that he seemed to infer I was a moron for holding a different one. Ie when I said I disagreed with his points saying the master couldn't pull off that level of a coup, his response was to say " you are entitled to your opinion" And then realist all of his points again, ending on "I assume a lot," which seemingly implied that because I didn't agree with his long list of points, then I'm stupid.

    If you have to trim the fat for space reasons you need to find things that can be cut without affecting the story you're trying to tell. I can live with that.
    These aren't essential plot elements therefore they're not always necessary. Especially if a reader can infer what happened later. But I infer that Ranark whisked Wendigo and Citadel away, to who knows where, and that's probably not what happened.



    It clearly had an end though. It does.
    It may have only been for the major players in the story, but it clearly had an end.
    An end that satisfied some people. I stayed to the end. I don't stay to the end, if I don't care/care to know what happens.

    I think the frenzy Garry refers to (and maybe 'push' would be a better word?) is that whenever a new AF (or, in one case, OF) book is announced, there is a big thing on this very list! where a bunch of us tell everybody to buy multiple copies, for the reasons Garry outlines.

    Just curious, do you have a set list of quotes you rotate through, or do you try and come up with a brand new one for each time you post?

    Again; he's not trying to change your perception; he's giving his reasoning for his views.

    Being the ultra-super-persuader-to-one-opinion I'll leave to someone else. G/A-F


    That strikes me as bizarre, personally.
    Does reading Garry's personal opinions about fictional characters really vex you that much? For someone so vexed, the comments keep on coming.
    Would it not be boring if we all had exactly the same opinions?
    ...
    Let's all embrace the fact that we actually share some common opinions!

    I'm ready to move on from volume 4, as I believe was suggested not too long ago.

    That is cool - but is it a version of a classic Hulk cover? If so, I don't recognise it.

    I was guessing it was a reinterpretation of #29.

    Probably; I'm still wondering if it's homaging a specific cover, though.
