And yeah, my favourite Romita Jr work is when he channels Kirby - his THOR run was top-notch, despite the frequently laughably bad writing. Let's just say I dropped it like a stone when he left.<BR/><BR/>"Jackass Kirby" - bwahahah! Nice try, but I ain't bitin'!<BR/><BR/>Oh and <B>stray toaster</B> - yeah, I loved Grendel, too.

He appeals to miserable teenagers in black who think they are 'deeper' than the rest of us, who are too 'shallow' to get his work, when really, all his Sandman stuff was tosh (except Brief Lives), but his other stuff (esp. with McKean) was ace, but no, the 'sensitive' types get hung up on Death and Dream, thinking their cosmic thoughts and wondering why the world shuns their aesthetic and pure outlook, why they can't just be left alone with their perceptive and original outlook on the universe.<BR/><BR/>grrr. *breathe* *relax*<BR/><BR/>I am sure I have done that rant longer and better, but can't find it.
