At Scoop skriver "Don Rosa and Steve Wyatt of Super Con Comics have brought Don's collection of 1970s- and 1980s-vintage comics to CGC to be pedigreed, certified and encapsulated." kan jo selvfølgelig være "journalistiske friheter".
Så det å forsegle tegneserier er like ille som å skyte en utrydningstruet panda og stoppe den ut? Exactly like?!
Jeg kunne aldri tenkt meg å forsegle noen av mine, men det har ingenting med å gjøre at jeg synes at tegneserier har like stor verdi som en panda...
Don Rosa kaller Steve Wyatt en gammel venn: "Steve is completely in charge of everything. All I did was let him into the "vault" last May and told him to haul away *everything* 1970 and later. Filled his van. I didn't even check what he took! An old friend, I trust him. From that point on, everything has been in his capable hands, sold on commission, and he seems to be doing a good job for me!"
Hvorfor skriver han da til AC: "It has been reduced to something to be bought and sold which is the only value an idiot like the comic-slabber can understand with his limited intellect." Hans gamle venn, "the comic-slabber", er altså en idiot med "limited intellect".
Hva slags språk er dette om andre folk og venner?
I tillegg så ble det solgt på kommisjon (sold on commission) fra Don Rosa. Hvordan kunne tegneseriene være "That was his decision with his property."?
Videre: "I left 100% of that marketing to Steve... and he seemed to do a nice job at it, made me some money for IRAs"
Don Rosa skriver videre om bruk av skanner for gode bilder av tegneseriene: "I suggested that after the FIRST comic he put on eBay 6 months ago. But then, when selling CGC slabbed funnybooks, why is a superclear pic needed?"
Ingen kritikk av CGC-seriene her heller.
Don Rosa har heller ikke noe i mot å tjene gode penger på forseglede tegneserier: "If I had picked the very best example of each comic off the rack, and made sure they didn't suffer micro-dings during the 3 or 4 moves they went through, all of my comics would be 9.9's, and I would be apparently making about $5,000,000 off 15,000 1970-85 comics.(But I'm doing okay with the 1500 Steve had slabbed!) "
Nei, så jeg forstår ikke hvorfor han hisser seg opp over at andre tjener penger på det samme...
