...do we have to like all artists?

It's political correctness gone mad.

No but you can express your dislike constructively or couch it in subjectivity a tad more tactfully. But on the whole this isn’t a place to be negative. For example instead of saying ‘this cover is crap’ it would be better to say ‘it dosent work for me, I think the colours / style / figurework / perspective/ whatever isn’t great’.  People often say they don’t like stories in the prog reviews but nobody needs to call anything ‘awful’ like a clarion cry.

It’s just the vibe here. There are FB groups where people can do that negative opinions thing the internet loves to deal in.

100% and entirely this. Thanks BPP.

I think I wrote some of the worst 2000 AD stories ever.

Carlos Ezquerra 5 Richard Elson 0.

Elson is awful.



Elson 5 : 0 Ezquerra

Ezquerra is awful.

There. Now we're both making equal amounts of sense.


For the terminally dim:  I don't think any of the artists are awful. I'm making a broader point.
No we are not. I am giving my opinion. Not sure what your broader point is, do we have to like all artists?

It wasn't a clarion call.

Actually I think you will find that Millar's Tooth work is more of a euphemism for "so utterly crap you want to gouge out your eyes with a melon-baller and drive an ice-pick through each socket ..."

So I suppose you're right on one level.  Not needed really ...
