I agreed with him when he pointed out how the violence seemed bombastic. He said, "You and I both like a lot of the same stuff. Either we like those classic, zany comics that weren't violent but fun in their stupidity. Or we like the indie stuff that stimulates your brain. I disagree with you on this Dragon stuff though. It just seems repetitive and predictable. I've only read ten of those comics you sent. But after the sixth issue, I already knew the next issue I picked up was gonna have some guy getting his head bashed in or something like that before I bothered to open it. Tell me, is this Larsen fellow capable of writing a nonviolent issue that's intellectually stimulating?"
I said, "Hey, he seems like a cool guy. He's patient and understanding with his fans. And he's a hard worker. And he's putting out the comic the way he wants it, and screw whatever everyone thinks. But I dig what you're saying. His writing doesn't seem to be challenging the reader's brain. And I agree cuz he could do that more."
But both of you have only read a dozen issues or something, right?
