DEFIANT's Schism Article - Overstreet CBM #16 (8th Jan 16 at 3:53am UTC)Quote Reply
DEFIANT's Schism Article from Overstreet Comic Book Monthly #16

http://defiant.x10.bz/Defiant_Reading_Room/Defiant_Articles/Overstreet/Article_016_Overstreet_CBM.pdf

This donation was provided by Gunter Bouwer in or around 2004. I thought it very odd. The reason it's odd is because the pdf loads in layers. Gunter informed me that he's a graphic designer and that he recreated all the layers from scratch. I questioned that and he never donated anything else. Why in God's name would you recreate all the layers and fonts for an article that was already 10 years old. I believe he was an intermediate and that the article came from a creator trying to hide any direct connection to my site. I now notice that it was written by J.C. Vaughn. This is a name that reappears frequently in connection to Jim. At the time I got this, I had no idea who he was and the name would've meant nothing to me. While I always liked getting new content donated, a pattern began to grow of people jerking my chain. I don't like carrots on a stick. I find it to be insulting. That's one reason you will never see me excited to buy 100 variants for a comic book. My attitude is that people should talk to me face to face and not spend all of their energies trying to manipulate me behind the scenes. This is what led to me being fed up with my site. Did Gunter recreate this article from scratch? Really?! Seriously? Would anyone else here do that? I don't know. It's strange to me. It's even stranger that he disappeared after I questioned where it came from. That's the reaction someone would have if they got busted at a deception.

For some reason it doesn't appear for me. Getting the blank screen.

Didn't JC Vaughn post a couple times in the old board? Or maybe i'm thinking it was in the old VCS board.

It is weird how creators post out of nowhere and then disappear. Especially when asked random questions and then *poof* they're gone.

Why bother in the first place.

I think he signed up and didn't post. I know he posted at the VCS board and at the Atlas board that disappeared. I had a disagreement on the Atlas board because Overstreet posted one of the Atlas text magazines and I questioned why a magazine was posted when they filter out comics. I think he resented my attitude. Either way, I'm told the magazine is no longer listed. You have the CPG site that was trying to list everything, but they won't publish a print version. Then you have Overstreet which thinks they are too good to put prices on everything. Essentially, there is no definitive place for prices.

Has it ever occurred to anyone that Comics are very much like the stock market with the ebb and flow of demand. Both rise and fall based upon the perception of the consumer. One big difference though. Laws regulate the stock market. Insider trading and manipulation of the collectibles market is rampant.

The file is a pdf. I'm assuming you are on a portable device that can't read a pdf? Yes? No?

It's 297 KB which is not big at all.
