So, i noticed Warren Ellis comment on Paul O'Brien's Sanity and i didnt know what he was talking about. So i decided to go read another O'Brien critique for old times sake. Now, Warren Ellis says, "though Paul O’Brien may have lost his mind..." due to all the X-books he's read. Frankly i liked the guy's reviews (still do) and i didnt truly believe that he was going nuts until i found my quote of the day on his comic review/blog on Wolverine issue #55;
"Now, I know what you're saying.
This is trivia. These are points of detail, of interest only to the sort of nitpicker who knows the difference between a cat and a sasquatch. This is America, goddamit, and if our children leave school knowing what a cat is, they've been reading too many books and playing too little football. What are you, some sort of difference-between-a-cat-and-a-sasquatch-knowing nancy boy? Such considerations are beneath Jeph Loeb, for he is thinking of the bigger picture. To the true maestro, the cat and the sasquatch are as one."
freakin... wow... i mean, i stopped reading X-Books because i couldnt handle watching the memories and stories and beloved characters getting raped by the pen-wielding hands of inept writers who would be much better off writing harry potter fan-fics and stories about dancing elves and other creatures wearing pointy hats with cokney accents.
i feel his pain.. but the guy does read every X-Men comic that comes out in the states. he brought his insanity on himself. while i would love to meet him in that space of time between ranting-on-a-forums and homicidal... i cant tell which one he's at right now.
