Hey everybody, Elliott here. I’ve been checking out the comment section on the YouTube channel as well as here on the blog and have found some very compelling, thought-provoking and amusing discussions/arguments going on. It goes without saying that the CCW*TV crowd is one of the best, if not THE best, on the internet. You guys are having some spirited exchanges and keeping it civil. I love it.
Now it’s my turn to throw something into the mix and give a fellow creator a bit of shit. Behold the following image, the cover to CHEW #7 by the esteemed John Layman and Rob Guillory:
Hm…would this be what you call a ‘loud cover’?
So what was it, John? Having a hard time selling your book? Struggling to get some attention? No one seems interested in your little comic there, eh? Had to pander to the lowest common denominator so a couple fanboys would pick up your little vanity-press item? :::shakes head:::
You know, after all the raving Jose and I have done over this book, after all the success we helped you achieve, to see such a blatant sexist ploy being used to sell it, I don’t know if I can support it anymore. The ultra-feminist in me won’t let me buy this book anymore with a clear conscience.
Explain yourself Mr. Layman. Why? Why did you do it?
Well, if you wanna balance the scales, you need to make a joke about a part of the MALE anatomy. That is, if you ever want to have my respect again.
The ball is in your court, sir.
