Platypodes wrote:Other criticism makes sense to me. I think it's perfectly reasonable to say that a comic wasn't funny or didn't make sense or could have been executed better. When people look at art, they talk about whether they like it or not, regardless of whether they paid for it. But there's a difference between evaluating the quality of a comic and taking offense at how much or little time the person chooses to spend on it. Why does he owe us anything?
Why is it a matter of "owing" anything? If he owes effort to anyone, it's to the fans who are buying his merchandise and therefore paying him to come up with those "brilliant displays of genius". If anything, his laziness is a display that he doesn't give a damn, he doesn't care about his quality standards. It's like the only thing he cares about is whether he still has fans gullible enough to eat whatever he puts out.
