Don’t worry Ronnie, this is just a conversation I don’t see it as a personal thing at all, and please don’t take my direct style of posting as me being insulted or irked by you - I type on my phone and I don’t have a lot of time so I just get to the point.
I’m defending them because I’ve bought literally hundreds of their books and enjoyed many of them. Some of their books I count as the best comics I’ve read.
I’m not alone in enjoying their work; Providence has been widely lauded, it’s one of the most effective pieces of horror ever put to paper.
Crossed has lot of fans out there due it’s is harrowing nature and the feelings of hopelessness and despair - which whether folk like it or not, it’s effective horror.
I could go on with regards to scores of titles but you get the picture.
I don’t like a publisher being swept aside as trash when they have such an impressive body of work.
I find it difficult to understand grown men who react so strongly and adversely to violence and sex on paper.
Also their paper stock is fantastic quality as is the binding on their books. I’m surprised to read the criticism of that. I feel exactly the opposite. I also love the smell of their comics.
