Recently the World Fantasy Awards committee voted to remove the image of the formerly highly respected fantasist Howard Philips Lovecraft from that award. Because of the puking whining of a disjointed elite within that part of literary fandom.
This is a problem. Where does it end? I know people who want us to blast the President faces off of Mount Rushmore. Do we hand them the dynamite?
Now, I pose to this same disgusting crowd of crowing idiots:
There is an award in comics named for, and in honor of Will Eisner. He was a racist. He was also a brilliant artist who did more than almost anyone else to promote sequential art. He also created this:
|Art by the racist, Will Eisner. (See his signature there? Huh? See it?")|
So I ask them...are you going to agitate for the removal of the Eisner Awards?
Huh? Are you?
