Man, I hate indie/"alternative" comic books. You know what? Being emo isn't a super power. Get a dose of gamma radiation! Build a super suit. Fight some frakkin' crime!
Indie comic book writers are just lazy, wannabe novelists. Get your whiny, melodramatic tripe off my comic store shelves and write your damn novel/screenplay/tv pilot already.
Yeah, I'm talking to YOU, Love and Rockets!
(That said, if you happen to write/illustrate an indie comic book, you're automatically cooler than I am because you're getting your stuff done. Christ, nevermind this rant, I'm just bitter and uncreative.)
