~~~ I agree wholeheartedly.  But if I want to "do comics" I have to suck it
up and smile through the freakshow. ; )

I have a name for the people Warren Ellis was describing, I call them,
"Life-ers"  as in comics is their life.  With certain additional traits of
course....   Now, while comics is my life, I don't....

- live in my parent's basement,

-  exist on the 4 food groups - McDonalds, Wendy's,  Taco bell and Ponderosa

-  know what color hair Alien Babe #7 had in Star Trek episode 34, scene 9.  

- don't wonder what it must be like to see, "a real live naked woman."  

(Though the way comics are drawn these days, I wonder if some of the
artists have ever seen a real live naked woman themselves.)

It's great that people get very devoted to tv shows, comics, etc.... but
fer chrissakes, take a bath.
