Yikes. Please tell me those comments about Steve by John Byrne are misquoted or a sick joke.

Steve was my favourite Aussie, and anyone who doesn't yet know how much he did for animals and conservation (and will continue to do through his name) better do some research and educate themselves.

I don't really have anything against PETA but they should be aware that a true blue, dinky-di Aussie like Steve did more to attract people to the cause than any "extremist" ever did. (Yes, I am well aware Steve was extreme in his own way.) What did Steve successfully communicate to those endless crowds of captivated youngsters (and their parents)? Above all, a love of the animals and their natural environments.

The world has lost a great Aussie, and I just don't see the point of all these people coming out of the woodwork bashing his name and reputation.

On an infinitely lighter note, J. Byrne thinks the K-Metal script is a hoax? What is his opinion based on?

Lighter?  Perhaps.  His opinion is based on ignorance and a habit of criticism without knowing the facts.

In a series of posts on his forum from early last August, he noted that "no 1940s story would be 26 pages long," he thinks the artwork is "insultingly bad," and he doesn't "buy" Roy Thomas' detective skills.  Whenever anyone else posted something good about the story or tried to defend it, he would shoot them down.  He also accused us of fraud.

We've all dedicated a lot of time, hard work, and love to this project and I am extremely pleased with what we've done so far.  I was very insulted by his statements.

But I figure if Byrne doesn't like what we're doing; then it must be pretty good!  Wink
