This is my funniest story from All-Con this past weekend.
I helped some of my acting-troupe friends with their table at one point and hired the artist in the next booth over to do a Red Sonja sketch for my girlfriend. I asked about his influences, tried to talk shop about my favorite comic artists and discovered two things.
1.) Said artist is a disciple of Dave Sim.
2.) He thinks Neal Adams has some "really weird ideas".
Now, granting that I am somewhat disturbed to find that my favorite Bronze-Age artist doesn't believe in basic geological theory or the Big Bang and has made movies and comics to prove his own theories, I still think that pales to any self-described disciple of a man who is most famous, outside of his comics writing, for having created his own religion and exposing the theory that women are creative "voids" who sap the creative "lights" (i.e. Precious Bodily Fluids!) of men after having done a lot of acid and being dragged to the hospital by his wife and mother, saying that ANYBODY has wacky ideas.
Mind you, it IS a damn good Red Sonja drawing. So damn the hypocrisy - the man can draw!
