I have a career, as does Sophie. She can take the advice, or watch IDW fold, and lose her opportunity to tell her stories.

You on the other hand, well, if being forgettable is the goal, congratulations.

HAH! You haven't seen him naked.

I mean, neither have I, frankly, but... well, I hear things.

If I misgendered Cylons, I apologize. I often mistakenly assume most people in forums are men.

Sorry for that, bad habit.

Well he's definitely a Dude. One of my favorite dudes! But I don't think he likes beer, so I'm not sure I can call him a "man".

And if he drinks White Claw then forget about it. But he never shared that information with me, so I don't know. But everyone who drinks Claws either has a vagina or grows one. It's science.

I don't like beer. Mostly because I don't like remembering myself as a 250 pound fatso.

I am a glorious Adonis when sky-clad.

And I make a fantastic Mint Julip, as befits someone in the South. I even sit on the porch and remind people that "the South shall rise again!" as I sip at it.

Technically, everybody collecting a paycheck that isn't from disability or unemployment has a "career." So what? For all I know, you fry chicken and aren't allowed to say "you're welcome", and must instead say "my pleasure." Quit trying to swing your d!ck around.

You sound like my undergrad college advisor. The only thing left is you tell me your idol is Andrew Jackson....


So what is the status of TMNT books with the layoff and pandemic? June wraps up TMNT/Power Rangers and Jennika? #105 to get through this arc?

No mint julip sipping sitting in a rocking chair and expressing south sympathy while praising Andrew Jackson.

The adults were talking, and you interrupted. When you actually publish something, I'll be interested in what you have to say.

No offense.

Technically, Cylons is a published author.

Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

But yeah, I'm always shocked that this place gets new members. Most of the people already here never even talk because anything you say out loud just leads to arguments.

But I've said this before: Expecting mature conversation from a bunch of 30-somethings who are in romantic love with cartoons is a fool's errand on its face.

It's like George Carlin said: "F*ck those people, if they knew anything they wouldn't be riding the bus."

To be fair, I do agree on one point. This obsession creators in the industry have with pissing off comicsgate is pretty pathetic. Considering their industry is on a steady decline, and artists who DO support comicsgate have found great success PURELY through fan support via their kickstarters. So it's clear that there is a large group of fans that are looking to throw their money at creators, if only those creators would stop spitting in their face.

Frankly I find it hard to care at this point. The entire comics industry wants to dig their own grave and at this point I'm content to watch them do it. It's the constant pissing in the wind they do while doing it that's annoying to see.

I do think it's kind of not smart business to openly tell potential customers "You're not the kind of people we want". Like, there's "If this thing isn't for you, it's not for you," which is one thing, and then there's "We actively, openly don't want you along for the ride." I find that to be questionable.

The most successful people I keep in touch with in the entertainment industry generally don't get "political" at all in public. They have their views at the end of the day like everyone else, but it's not part of their job and they're not about to cut off their nose to spite their face and lose millions of dollars doing so. Except for a few who are set for life regardless and therefore have nothing to lose. But that's different.

I kinda think that if you make your money in the public eye then it pays to play conservatively. And by that I don't mean "right-leaning", I mean "Don't openly tell potential customers that you don't want their money because of how they feel on unrelated issues which probably don't have much to do with your products".

But that's me. I also don't know what "comicsgate" is and now I'm afraid someone's gonna tell me.

I hope IDW TMNT lasts 150 issues before it concludes. We're up to issue 106 now so by issue 150 it should be enough time to wrap up most storylines if they have to.

It is true that Coronavirus really screwed over a lot of industries and is causing a lot of companies to fold or mass layoffs, and the comic book industry is definitely hit hard, but let's hope TMNT goes on for the time being.

Female turtle is definitely not a diversity of thought in any way shape or form.
And I don't think some people are pissed purely because she is "female turtle". Though, I won't deny that those people exist too, (which doesn't make pinnacle of all evil or whatnot).

People who dislike SJWs and their "diversity", basically.
