I WANT to comment, but words aren't enough...

Wow.

Yeah. Well then. Back to work for me.

    What . . . what the hell was that? No, seriously - What. The. Hell. Was. That?

    It's one thing to not have you writing for Blog@Newsarama anymore and it's another entirely to have you replaced with . . . that. Jesus Christ.

    I'm beginning to understand why you all left Newsarama! Good Grief!

    People seem to be complaining about images, but there aren't any that I see. Were they taken down?

    Also, haha, wow. This stream-of-thought writing is what I encourage my students to do for brainstorming. This was not publishable material.

    If I had to guess, Dane, I would say they were referring to the images at the zenescape link at the end of the column. (Correct me if I'm wrong, Kalinara or Sally, I just read the thing.)

    As it is, it reads like Newsarama let the crazy Starman from the current JSA write a column.

    There were images up earlier. They've since been taken down.

    My own reaction's more content than picture related though. :-)

    Yeah. I don't remember what it was earlier this week that caused me to remove the link to Blog@Newsarama from my RSS feed, but I'm fairly certain whatever it was, this was worse. Yeesh.

    The images can be seen in the google-cache, here. Though I've no idea how long googlecache keeps the old versions.

    As for everything else - I couldn't read it hrough properly, what jumped out at me wasn't to my taste and when viewed with the images I had an instant recoil.

    Maybe Newsarama wants to reclaim Blog@ for the porn loving, comic book ass shots drooling over fanboys everywhere? One step for man? A bitchsmack for gender equality in comics blogging?

    And that's why I never read newsarama....

    Thanks for the assist, Willow. The pics are back up anyway, it turned out just to be a sizing issue.

    And while I don't think this guy adds a great amount of diversity to the Newsarama blog, I think the administrators wanted more of a comics insider's view than anything else. He's an editor and publisher, after all. I'd actually like to hear more about that and his experiences in the field than him bitching about Spider-Man, actually.
