Joe’d…

I’d not date other comic fans.

Do we really need an extra thousand things to argue about? I’ll stick with where to eat and whose parents are crazier. I don’t need to yell about the relative merits of Joe Matt vs. Johnny Ryan.

I’d have saved my anti-Crisis-on-Infinite-Earths Piece

Seriously, I can’t find that anywhere. It makes me sad. It was fucking brilliant.

I’d never have quit CSBG in the first place.

Can you imagine me with some sort of moderation ability? I would burn a swath through the comment fields like a case of mono through the popular kids in junior high. Lo, I would be feared indeed.

I’d not date other comic fans.

Do we really need an extra thousand things to argue about? I’ll stick with where to eat and whose parents are crazier. I don’t need to yell about the relative merits of Joe Matt vs. Johnny Ryan.

That’s a good rule to live by. I find comics’ girls to be more vain and mean then normal “popular” girls because they not only have a crutch of “intellectual superiority” but they’re also queen of the nerd prom, with every dude fawning over them because they “understand my love of Deadpool!” or whatever.

Still, if she can at least understand that for a few hours every Wednesday I turn into the biggest dork ever then I think she’s a keeper.

Yeah, isn’t that the piece?

Good piece.

Huh. Well I’ll be damned.

i like to date girls who dont know about comics but are open to them, so i can get them hooked on Y: the last man or the exterminators or somethign like that, but i would never ever open her up to the geekdom of my superhero comics, haha

Oh, dude! Not cool!

As long as we’re making requests, can anyone find a piece that I was pretty sure was either on the old blogspot Comics Should Be Good or on the old Listen to Us, We’re Right blog (listencomics.blogspot.com) about why Mark Waid’s Fantastic Four was not that good? It was a really good argument about the flaws of Waid’s FF but I can’t find it anywhere anymore.

for the record, Joe..it took me like 3 seconds to google that.:-)

Given that my comments especially seem to work you into a frothy rage, I guess I can give thanks about that one. ;

I’ve never seen a female poster act like an idiot. Therefore, unless you’re gay I think it should be OK to date a comics fan.

dalarsco,

you cant really judge people by the internet, guys or girls…. that said ive met both some cool and some extremely annoying comics girls, its the same as guys

but yeah, id rather date a non-comics fan so i can get them in to it myself, get them hooked on y: the last man, exterminators, young liars or stuff like that

Something like: “Mark Waid’s FF: World’s Shittiest Comics Magazine”, wasn’t it?

I couldn’t find that one; wanted to link to it a few times. Sort of the post that made me want to get a blog.

When I saw this in word press, I thought you were using Joe’d as a verb. Like you’d just Joe’d someone. Feel free to use that one, by the way.

I think that was the name of it, it was definitely on one of those two blogs I’m sure but I can’t find it at all! I knew I was vaguely dissatisfied with Waid’s run but that piece articulated it so well and made it clear to me.

I’m sure it was CSBG.

“I’ve never seen a female poster act like an idiot.”

Then you’re either not looking hard enough, or blinded by nerd-lust. Idiots are all over, across the gender divide.

Yeah I mean I like Joe Matt a lot, but Johnny Ryan.

How can you be sure you’ve never seen a female poster act like an idiot? Isn’t the general rule that 90 percent of female posters – especially in male-dominated fandoms – use gender neutral screen names while almost everyone who self identifies as female is actually a guy? (Or is it just everyone who self identifies as a YOUNG female is actually an OLD guy?)

That’s not true!!

Wouldn’t that rule hold true for anything? I’d rather not date a football fan; I’d rather not date an IT professional; I’d rather not date…

I mean, if your grounds for not marrying someone is based on arguing over things you have in common….

I don’t know, weird attitude if you ask me.

I’d rather date, or marry, someone I have some interests in common with, especially if our views differ slightly. It helps with conversation.

My wife is a wonderful semi-geeky lady (watched all Star Trek TNG before I met her) that has zero interest in comics. She enjoys seeing movies related to them, however, and not just to make me happy….although there’s something about Hugh Jackman that makes seeing Wolverine imperitive.

But it’s nice to have someone understand in some aspect your geeky hobby.

Now, I’ll fully agree that dating someone that makes comics/Star Wars/Star Trek/Aliens/whathaveyou the defining element of their lives and will tolerate no insubordination of their beliefs is a scary thing. Even if I have the same interest or hobby.
