After his life turned to shit (divorced from his wife, girlfriend broke up with him, LSD overdoses brought out his latent schizophrenia), he formed his own religion (which he claims to be a synthesis of Judaism/Christianity/Islam, but is actually just some stuff he made up) which holds that masculine=good and feminine=bad, that men are "lights" and women are "voids", with men being inherently superior and women being inherently inferior (because men were created by the good masculine deity G-d, and women come from the evil feminine deity YHWH, who lives in the center of the Earth and aims to corrupt mankind). He drove away his family and friends, he openly insults anyone who doesn't agree with him 100%, and he refuses to speak with anyone who will not sign a form stating that they do not believe him to be a misogynist.
On top of that, Cerebus the Aardvark is one of the most important/influential/groundbreaking comics of all time, but it's completely unknown outside of the small group of people who are dedicated comics enthusiasts.
Here's one of his essays, to see a sample of his prose style.
>>79712344 >guy is schizophrenic >he makes irrational decisions (like refusing treatment) >"Wow, what a shock, I can't believe that the schizophrenic guy made an irrational decision instead of a rational decision." He deserves our pity, not our scorn.
>>79712096 Gonna be honest, the only one of his I've read is Superman/Batman: Generations. It had some really interesting ideas in it but by the end it had just turned into Clark and Bruce wank material.
Oh yeah, and there's that page of the sequel where Superman makes out with an underage girl.
>>79713316 I wish that the mental health care system in this country wasn't so backwards as to make it impossible for friends and family to get someone help unless the individual in question chooses to do as such of their own volition, or puts themselves in immediate legal/medical peril.
>>79712324 >he openly insults anyone who doesn't agree with him 100% Sim might be somewhat unhinged, but that's a downright lie. He just doesn't want to talk to people he thinks are lost causes (ie. won't sign his "petition", which is really more of a contract to communicate with him). He's generally quite civil towards people despite his hardline views, others in the industry have far more irrational hatred for Sim than he has for them (see: that dirt-digging article where a man who wrote a comic about the horrors of the holocaust was literally caricatured as an Auschwitz guard for his views on feminism).
It doesn't really help that even though he's dialled back on the crazy considerably since the days he wrote things like your picture, that's all anybody posts when they bring him up. Not stuff like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx7RUcwAQ3E
>>79713391 >>79716673 Don does actually seem pretty autistic (in the actual sense, not the 4chan sense). He's obsessed with Carl Barks duck canon and either actively dislikes or simply disregards anything duck related that deviates from or contradicts it, no matter what its other merits might be. He likes to point out even the tiniest inaccuracies, especially with merchandise (and a recent message on facebook was him pointing out at length why Disney shouldn't have used one of his comic covers as an online christmas card, because some of the things in the picture relate to a particular story and make no sense out of context - nobody but him would have fucking noticed). And he uses architectural drawing templates to get the curvatures of the ducks beaks exactly right from every angle.
To be fair about the curvature thing, he worked in construction for many years and had experience with architectural drafting. That would make the use of stencils or guides more of a convenience of familiarity than anything else. Plus, he is pretty critical especially of his early art, so I imagine he simply doesn't want to deal with messing up something that he has a tool for reliably repeating.
>>79717891 I don't think Moore's nearly as crazy as people think, despite the drugs. I'm pretty sure he purposely plays to people's expectations of him being crazy - He's just more subtle than Morrison so more people believe the act.
>>79712049 Crumb isn't really insane. He had a shit childhood and his already apparent social anexity didn't help much either. I really kind of felt bad for him as I kind of had similar issues growing up and didn't get help until much much later
>mfw his brother George committed suicide after "Crumb" wrapped up production
>>79717382 >He's obsessed with Carl Barks duck canon and either actively dislikes or simply disregards anything duck related that deviates from or contradicts it, no matter what its other merits might be. The worst part is that he's obsessed with what he THINKS Barks Duck canon SHOULD be, and disregards tons of stuff in it he doesn't like, such as the space stories, or things that *Barks himself actually said* — he and Carl Barks weren't on good terms, back when Barks still lived.
Despite people's protests, Rosa absolutely is a nut. He's the worst kind of fansperg, and unfortunately he got a job doing it.
>>79722558 >But if you think that's true specifically because men were made by God and women were made by an evil YHWH then man. We need to have some words. Kek, nah. But in that rant of his that >>79712324 posted I don't see much of a flaw, that's all. Sure, it's a bit out there to think it's the work of an evil demiurge, but it's hardly *insane* to believe that, just gnosticism basically. And his actual arguments are sharp, so what do I care about his faith? He doesn't sound crazy to me.
