Monday Misogyny: He Wasn't Even Trying This Time

The Immortal Words of Erik Larsen:
Oh, and if a creator brings his wife to a show, don't hit on her. If he ends up slugging you and busting his hand, he'll produce fewer comic books and everybody loses in that deal. And don't offer to let him ball your sister -- especially if his wife is in earshot. That can cause all kinds of problems.
Thank you, Erik, valuable advice indeed.

  1. I almost wish someone would collect his quotes and produce one of those random generators like they have for Chuck Norris...

  3. Who would win a battle for the title of Comics' Greatest Misogynist, though? Erik Larsen or Chuck Austen?

  5. Hmmm... currently working or all time?

    If all time, Sims.

    If current, Winick.

    Sure, Miller probably does more offensive things per issue (WTF was up with that Black Canary story in ASB&R #3?), but...

    a)he only puts out one comic ever four months
    b)he's at least honest about being a pig.

  7. Sorry. Dave Sims, ya sea urchin!

    That bloke who did Cerebus and had all manner of interesting theories on a woman's place...

  9. Austen, because he actually seems delusional, whereas Larsen probably knows he's full of shit, but is too much of a child to change his ways.

  10. You know the only reason he's writing this column is to piss you off, right?

  11. Yes! And we all fell for his wily games. Therefore who is best? Why, it is he! He's won his cunning battle of wits with us! Thanks for pointing that out, anonymous, or we might never have guessed the intricate depths of the deadly chess game that he played with our very souls!

  12. Thanks Ralph, I knew you'd understand.

  13. I'd say I'm more entertained than pissed at this point.

    Of course, I don't know his personal life so I'm assuming that he's not breeding.

  14. "Oh, and if a creator brings his wife to a show, don't hit on her."

    Dammit, that's what I've been doing wrong! Huh. Man, it's so obvious once someone points it out.

    Thanks, Erik. You just saved me a couple of punchings!
