Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Unfortunately John Byrne's star has sunk.  At one time he was gold in the comics industry.  Now quite the contrary.
Personally I think Action has improved a bit of late, but I think it seemed disconnected from the rest of the Superman books.

As far as I know Byrne wasnt fired- both he and Simone had a finite number contracted.

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Who said that? Is that the new spin?

To quote Byrne:

Gail and I were hired (tho I was not told this when I agreed to do the book, or I would have declined) to 'fill the gap' between one team and the next."

It's too funny.  I found the quote through the "Quote of the Week" at the Comics Reporter
http://www.comicsreporter.com/index.php/cr_week_in_review10/

I direct anyone who wants a good laugh to read another of Byrne's quotes as linked to from Fanboy Rampage:

this was too funny:

The Comics Journal considers one of fandom's favorite topics:

"Just randomly wondering why people have such strong feelings about John Byrne. I missed where he stole everyone's lunch-money and kicked all those babies, or whatever his crimes against humanity are..."

"Apparently he's outspoken or something."

"I think a lot of fans of a certain generation came to think of him as the greatest superhero cartoonist in the world and then, when they grew up, they looked at his stuff again (which hasn't really changed very much over the last 30-odd years) and realised it was just reasonably facile hackwork and felt somehow personally betrayed. I think maybe that explains the strength of feeling, at least partly."

"I've heard nothing - and I mean NOTHING - but bad things about Byrne's treatment of other human beings, especially fans. Common courtesies such as holding a door open or saying please or thank you or moving out of someone's way are apparently beneath his concern. Also, he's *not* a good artist, nor has he ever been. He epitomizes 'hack.'"

"Does he still sit in that giant chair at conventions that makes him tower over the other artists by 4 or 5 feet?"

HAHAHAHA!!!

Forgive me if someone on this board is very conservative; I mean no harm. But read this forum post on John Byrne's political leanings:

http://www.byrnerobotics.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=4998&PN=1&totPosts=239

A guy on the forum talks about how he's invested thousands in making a conservative comic book, and then another one talks about his new comic, Super Liberal.
