So rather then just post back and forth about some inane “argument” that never seems to end, goes in circles and only serves to . . .Umm. Got me one what it serves other then increasing one’s posting numbers.
I posted to the Cerebus Yahoo!Group last night after my pressure relief valve on that whole slog finally broke – you can read it, just don’t read Ryan’s post first, as to jump head first into that maelstrom by reading his post would only cause you to wonder what medival torture I had thrust upon you and what you had done to deserve such poor treatment, scroll down after you click here to read it. No offense met to Ryan, a personable fellow and another Cerebite, but for anyone unfamilar with the current state of affairs over at the Cerebus Yahoo!Group, you might be a bit. . .confused by it all.
Sending my post late last night, I read my book (John Scalzi’s The Ghost Brigades, I’m ’bout 4/5 through it) and went to sleep. Waking up, I find a bit more of the same bickering going on. When I get home from work and check in on the group. The same crowd is doing the same thing. The only response I was hoping for my posts were a fellow “Aye fellow Cerebite. Now ’bout this reread we’re discussing.”
But there are some of them out there, like ChrisW posting his own insights into his current pre-reread reread. And a few people are responding to him, and to my tries of steering the conversation on the Cerebus Yahoo!Group back to you know, Cerebus. I even posted a picture of my collection as it is today, to see if others would post their own pictures:
I rather use my time to think of creative ways to promote Cerebus, to try and get more people to try it – to enjoy it as much as I do, then bicker. So I used my time to response to a few Cerebus related posts and to do this:
A logo I quickly came up with for the third reread the group will be doing. There is some talk of how it should go – so far the lead is an issue a week. But we’re talking if we should start now or wait ’till SPACE (April 18th). And how to mix the Cerebus Miscellany into the equation: in the time line of where it belongs story wise or chronologically when it was made by Dave.
So if you are a fellow fan of Cerebus, a fellow Cerebite, or if you just want to start reading Cerebus, but don’t know where to start – why not start at the beginning with us? All the bickering be damned, when we get to talking Cerebus, we’re unstoppable.
