No, gentle listener, this isn't the return of the Young Animal Gatherum...
This time out, I give a peek behind the curtain and tells the story about how a review he did on a site other than his own, managed to affect change on Chris is on Infinite Earths!
What happened when Chris received his first bit of clapback? Well, lemme tell ya, It's a story of angry comments, curse words, appeals to motive, and over-reaction... with just a little bit of ranting about the current sensationalized comics reviewing "culture". It's somehow even less provocative than it sounds!
PLUS: The introduction of a potential new segment... COMICS HOT TAKE, wherein I will attempt to analyze the initial reactions of comic fans when changes are made to the hobby we hold so dear. For this "pilot" installment, in tying in with my #ActionComicsDaily project, I will be taking a look at the Letter Page from Action Comics Weekly #605 (1988), which features the first bit of feedback DC Comics received on the weekly anthology format... from prolific letterhacks who received black and white preview photostats of the issue!
