...or those future fans.
Ok i'm setting here in my room, and my little nephew of four years, comes running in
with a scholastic book, that is about batman, now the first thing that cacthes my eye is the cover.
It looks alot like a Mr.Byrne's drawing of the dark knight, and on closer look yep it
has Mr.Byrne's credited for the pretty pictures.
I would post a pic but my little nephew just grabed it from my hands and ran out of my room.
Tried to find it on the net but scholastic doesnt even have it on their site.

How did this prove that John Byrne doesn't hate his fans?

He sent me an autographed copy of an issue I'd missed, at no charge, without me asking him for one.  That's certainly evidence that he doesn't hate his fans.

I don't see what this has to do with him hating his fans.

I think JB's continued presence on this board proves he most certainly does not hate his fans.  Name one other major comic creator who works on multiple high-profile titles at a time, gets his work done on (or ahead of) schedule, and still manages to interact with his fans on a daily basis.

Point one: JB drew the cover of a Batman book for kids

Point two: JB doesn't hate his fans

Anyone that can draw a line of logic connecting these two statements wins a no-prize.

Perhaps we should just appreciate the first post as a nice story and ignore the non sequitur of the thread title?

It's mine then, since the keyword was future fans.
The point is he doesn't ignore the kids, like some do..

I hear he leaves stinky old comics out as treats on Halloween, instead of candy.

Wait'll the kids in the new neighborhood get a load o' that. They'll be camped out on his doorstep every Oct. 31st. Why didn't I have a crazy man like that in my neighborhood?

He didn't track me down, find out my birthday, and send me a
ridiculously extravagant present.

What a dick.

C'mon guys, Al was just trying to be positive.  I'm guessing Al thinks somebody with a cruel heart wouldn't be doing kid's books.

I actually see what he's saying now, he's talking about JB watching out for
the future generation of comic lovers, which is always a good thing.

Not expecting much Halloween action in the new house.   Waaaaaaaaay out in the woods, off a side street of a side street, with no sidewalks, no streetlights --- and, quite frankly, it's Blair Witch country past the end of my driveway! If the doorbell rings on Halloween, I think I'll head for the basement and lock the door!

I got my copy of the scholastic printing of "The Untold Legend of Batman" today. Black and white printing. My students have already stol...er... borrowed it to read. They know the rule. Finish the required readings first (stuff like Hatchet, Johnny Tremain, A Bad Beginning, Goblins in the Castle, Magician's Nephew, etc.), then they can go after the teacher's books, like this one. Since we are close to the end of the first quarter, some of them have reached their requirements.

I learned it from the way James Cook got his men to eat saurkraut. Put the stuff where they really want to get it, whether they like it or not. I have one student reading the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe now.

And another reading Len Wein's, John Byrne's and Jim Aparo's stories.

I've added graphic novels to my high school classroom when there's reading time beyond the required reading, and the kids have really taken to them. JLA: The Tenth Circle is making the rounds, as is Green Arrow: Quiver.

I guess i really wasnt clear as to what i meant.
We have all heard about all those Byrne Basher say Byrne doesnt do this or his old
stuff is better, he hates the fans blah,blah,blah,
Which never has been true.
But i will say this that the book fair here at my little nephew's
school is still going on tommorrow, and guess what i'm going to buy.
It's always good to go back to school.
If this a dumb thread to have started then i will say this.
Mr.Byrne's on what lane are the red sweater's on?
