I Will Tell You #83:
Top 5 Greatest Suckiest Comics Ever
My mother, and just about everyone else’s, has said many times if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all. And obviously, since I’ve been called a critic, I must not have listened. But the truth is, I learned, you can do both. You can find nice things to say about something even while mercilessly trashing it.

My service to the comics industry is done for the week; I rest now.
