There's a lot of hypersensitivity going around lately - and I think it's rubbing off on me. Last week, I got some pissed off emails because a few people thought I was attacking American soldiers with "Home on the Ranged Attack" part 2. Yesterday, I got even more angry emails from people who were telling me I should be ashamed of myself for "ripping off Lloyd Alexander's original ideas" with the inclusion of a cauldron that revived the dead in "Home on the Ranged Attack" part 5. Nevermind the fact that I did reference Alexander in the comics tag at the bottom, OR the fact the cauldron is from a Welsh legend that Alexander mined for his masterful Prydain Chronicles, which Disney then shat out as the movie, "The Black Cauldron." So basically, I'm a rotten person for "stealing" something someone else took from a legend from centuries past. My favorite was a reader who told me I was "selling out" by taking from "The Black Cauldron - which, to me, makes it sound like I had Davan suddenly look at the readers and give a pitch for a Disney DVD.

And I'm sure the above comic isn't going to make some people happy, so let me just cut some of the complaints off now: Yes, I'm a Southerner. Yes, I know the history of the Civil War decently well. Yes, I realize Southerners are not dimwitted yokels obsessed on a war that's long over and that most of the rage was really directed over the handling of Reconstruction.

Yes, I realize this is a stupid post - but after you get an email from someone who says they were upset to the point of crying because they felt you were ripping off their childhood memories, obviously you need disclaimers - because, apparently, none of my comics have EVER BEEN MEAN UNTIL THE LAST WEEK!

A deep-felt apology to the rest of you - I know this is dumb, but I'm tired and a little cranky. To make it up to you, below is a special bonus comic that - well, it'll get complaints, but finally it's complaints I'm deserving of! -R
