CCW Word of the Week

Posted: September 7, 2009 in Blogging, Geek Culture, Humor


Pretentious (adj.) \pri-ˈten(t)-shəs\ : expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature.

“Man, that Jeph Loeb sure is a pretentious @$$!”

    I recall that E…said on the ccw channel that Loeb writes Hulk for a very young demographic and that, that’s who that comic is intended for. E”s reasoning may be sound, but in my opinion Loeb is writing for an older demographic, it’s just that he’s not a skilled enough writer to convey any complexity of thought that would resonate to anyone above the age of 12. And there’s some 12yr olds that recognise.
    As far as Loeb being an @ss goes, Peter David resembles that remark as well, but at least in his case..he’s got talent to fall back on.
    And in conclusion,I must admit that I own about a dz. (R)ulk comics myself, of course having McGuiness, Cho and A.Adams,softens the blow…..somewhat.

    I think everyone’s a little pretentious every now and then. But some people just need a swift kick to get their head back on planet earth. Maybe JL and BMB should add a little humility to their morning coffee and maybe their writing won’t be so horrid.
