Fanboy anger is so weird. Especially now.

Canceling a show is a lot more complex of a decision than canceling at comic. I was riding my bike to the comics shop over 20 years ago and never fell in with a nerdy crowd. My interest was always my own so fanboyism wasn't ever a thing I really dealt with in person or understood. And I read the source material since I was a kid. Comic economics are a little weird but also pretty simple since the costs are fairly uniform excepting some creators but those guys' names move books

Now the weird dude behind the counter and a mob of his associates are harassing Star Wars actors and bitching about every corporate decision a television studio males regarding a show they like being rebooted or canceled. It's inescapable. Real news reports on these over opinionated asses

I have to imagine what it's like to be a person who thinks they have an ownership stake in a character as a person who's watched superhero comics be bonkers as fuck and stylistically every way you can imagine for as long as I can remember. I don't like imagining that mindset

I lost a larger, better, clearer point in the details but I just woke up. I award myself points for difficulty
