        But I am grateful that Roberts is so kind to help me.

        Then he's done everyone a favour. You get to make fun out of something that not many people take seriously anyway, and the rest of us get a book that does a bunch of things quite well in a fairly unique way.

      ... I really do worry sometimes that I'm talking to people whose entire identity is immersed in these comics, and that by saying something negative about it, these same people take it as a personal attack against them.

        I can't remember if you're UK-based or not, but we have a similar situation here with Labour Party politics - the trouble is that there's so much suspicion and bad blood that people jump very quickly to the conclusion that you're one of 'them' (ie. the people at the extreme opposite end of the debate). You can go in with a nuanced point and find that people on both 'sides' respond like you're the enemy.

        I'm in the states, right outside of DC. It's pretty much the same situation. You're exactly right. Nuance is dying. and the extremes at both ends are killing it.

      I can't really argue against your point with that one scavenger character. He's a horrible character as well. I guess he doesn't bother me as much because he isn't being foisted on us in the same way that Anode is.

      Hey - I hope I've answered some of your thoughts in that 6 years thread.

      You're right when you say Anode is a poorly conceived character. She is. My problem with tacking on the trans part of her character is it felt like a way to make her more interesting. I have a problem with that. The character was a failure from the start, so Roberts decided to add that bit in a last ditch effort to make her more appealing.

        Yeah, that's an understandable complaint. When you put it this way, I can't really quibble. My resistance is more to the general idea that Roberts doesn't care about quality because he's spending too much time with progressive politics. It seems clear to me that Roberts' flaws would be the same whatever his politics.

        You're not wrong. I like seeing people disagreeing with me because it give me an insight that I wouldn't necessarily have otherwise.

      Hi Split Lip - no problem! Hope it got sorted or is on the way to getting sorted.

      BTW, sorry if I came across rude in that MTMTE thread, I absolutely didn't mean to be. I stepped out once I saw how derailed it got, very sorry. Real life shit that wasn't your fault had me in a snooty mood.
