Good grief, this Miller guy sounds like a jerk. At least when people like John Byrne or Alan Moore had misanthropic meltdowns, they did it with flair, and backed it up with actual talent.

He's still going too. Blaming everyone but himself for how it went down. He's also yelling at creators for saying what he did was real dickish while Ringo art is readily available on eBay for cheap. Apparently since they aren't buying up all the art they can't actually think what he did was bad.

The guy wasn't very liked before but I think this might have burned every bridge he might have had left.

Oh and he's got defenders too. He was popular among the comicsgate croud so anyone who thinks what he did was disrespectful is an sjw.

The more I see of comicsgate the more it seems like a huge portion of those involved just want to be assholes and use half formed political arguments as flimsy cover.

The only real loss with CG is EVS deciding to fuck any chance of doing any mainstream work. But some how he's managed to convince his followers that watching him mutilate Rose Tico figures and trash talk Gail Simone will make comics great again.

So Mike is now saying he's going to start buying up art just to burn it. I made these two tweets in response to it.

Well apparently he and and his followers have seen it and have shown interest in the idea. Not sure if he's serious but I've been telling him to run with the idea. It would be pretty funny if I could get him and others to spend money on stuff they don't like just to destroy it.
