Gods and Heroes

DJ Coffman wrote a blog entry today about a writeup Wizard Magazine did on Hero By Night. He also talked a bit about how weird it is to be called an "aspiring creator" even though he worked for years with various talented writers.

I suppose this is a piece of old news, but DrunkDuck posted an interview they did with Ronson, creator of The Gods of Arr-Kelaan. A bit of history and some comments about the process behind the comic.

My bad, y'all

I think I had those "too little sleep/too early in the morning/ain't had me no coffee yet" blues. I think I probaly half read what each of you wrote and let 3 hours of sleep worth of brain fog fill in the blanks. Friends don't let friends drive drunk OR post without at least 6 hours of sleep. No good can come of it. LOL. Again--My bad. Dee G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien Kreatures It's like The Goonies meets The Invaders from Mars. Updates on Mondays.

I was just sarcasming back at your sarcasm - I didn't mean to be harsh, man.

Everyone. Relax.

 

This has been your "don't take forum posts on the internets too seriously" post of the day.

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Gimme a break you two. Or three. Or four...

Yeah, speaking of "tone is hard to decipher"?! Holy Shit you two. How can you read a post where someone mentions jerking off to a copy of Wizard of all magazines and not sense a tongue planted firmly in a cheek?! What? Not enough LOL's for you? Or did you sense a certain lack of smiley faces? I guess you just can't poke fun anymore. Gimme a break with this bullshit--Life is too fuckin' short!

I don't think he's complaining

It didn't sound like that to me. Hell, he just sounded thrilled getting written up by Wizard. I'm sure he would have given a testicle like any of us would have, but he didn't have to, so really, just who here is complaining, hmm? [/sarcasm]

Major congrats, DJ. HBN chances just skyrocketed with that write-up. That's really cool.

He's not really complaining...

I was going to post a response myself but DJ Coffman responded to that on his blog (apparently he can't post on Comixpedia?) so I'll just paste it here:

I still can’t post on Comixpedia, but I want to make it clear I’m totally not complaining about being in Wizard. It was just a very bizarre moment in my mind to realize that I probably have been “aspiring” all these years.

Sometimes tone is hard to decipher on the Internet so I can totally understand how it could be misunderstood. But he wasn't complaining, just remarking on a feeling.

So, Wizard wrote an article

So, Wizard wrote an article about DJ Coffman and his new book in which they called him "an aspiring creator"? And SOMEHOW he finds the strength to go on. Boy DJ, you've got guts. Somebody get that man a telethon. LOL! Sorry, I just find it funny that anybody can complain about an article written about them in a major comic magazine in which they spelled not only YOUR name right but also got the name of your comic letter perfect too while praising both. If I saw an issue of Wizard on a newsstand inwhich there was an article praising me and GAAK I'd buy it, take it home, and jerk off to it as if it were porn. LOL! I kid, DJ. But still. How many of the buh-zillion webcomic folks out here toiling in absolute obscurity (like myself) would give a testicle or an ovary to have Wizard magazine call us an "aspiring creator" in an article about us and our comic(s)? That LONG LINE forms behind me. LOL! And before I forget, DJ--Congrats! Dee G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien Kreatures It's like The Goonies meets The Invaders from Mars. Updates on Mondays.
