I will not respond to the person who posted on my comics article insulting not only my taste but my capability to do my job. I have no clue what they're so damn butthurt about.
Like, you didn't like my list? Whatever. You don't think that there aren't people who haven't read Books of Magic? Whatever. But I have been working in the comics industry from the retail standpoint since I was 17. I love my job. It's the reason I always have to work there at least one night a week. It's home, it's who I am, and I don't ever want to give it up. And I am damn fucking good at what I do.
I know that one person on the internet challenging me is something stupid, especially when I know it's blatantly wrong and I have hundreds of customers to back me up (plus, the fact that they're the ONLY person to say something negative about the article). But man, it feels the same like if a random stranger told you that you're a sucky parent or that your house is crummy piece of shit. I just want to swing.
But I'm better than that. One asshole isn't going to shake my confidence. Haters going to hate.
Oh, and if said commenters sees this, I didn't ask any other GTers to respond to you. They're doing so of their own volition and because they believe what they're saying.
