John Byrne is an Asshole - Exhibit, oh let's call it 1,073:
If you want to see arrogance and pettiness at its worst, check out this thread at the Byrne board about Lost Girls. It starts off with my friend, Dave Farabee being called a total asshole by John Byrne for wanting to read a book.
It ends when Byrne can't handle even a debate completely overrun by his fanatical idiot fans (like Joe Zhang) and closes the thread, saying it made him feel like it wasted 30 years of his life.
It's funny, Dave and I have debated Lost Girls, and I've been more or less on the opposite side of the fence from him, uninterested and even wary about the book... but seeing who that lumps me in with, I now find myself wanting to read it, and even champion it to others.
