    Of trying to break into comics in the Reagan years when the independent publishers had their little heyday in the wake of the Mutant Turtles hitting big.

    Way too many "I voted my credit card for Reagan to keep to spirit of the '60s alive" types running those companies, bragging about how how open to unique new ideas while they are while publishing parodies and knockoffs of the Turtles or last season's hot titles, and running their little companies like little cliques.

    They couldn't see any merit in a Johnny Bravo/Futurama/Diesel Punk/Atom  Punk mashup that went on to be an A+ college journalism project done back before there were Johnny Bravo, Futurama, Atom Punk, Diesel Punk, and mashups, because "You suck 'cause you ain't like Marvel, DC, and the Turtles (and sometimes the Aardvark and the Elves)!"

    I suppose that I'm lucky that Image didn't exist back then to be compared to.

    There was some bigotry involved because I wasn't cosmic and groovy enough to be born between Hiroshima and Sputnik or hip enough to have a white collar suburban parentage.

    Let's screw the poach for everyone now that your comics are yellowing, obscure and forgotten in bargain boxes, you're flipping burgers or cubical dwelling, while I aced the unpassable electronics aptitude test and am fixing Delivery BarCode Sorters....

    "If this Studebaker had anymore Atomic Space-Age Style, you'd have to be an astronaut with a geiger counter!"
