Long Story; Short Pier: Talking About Comics
I can think of no better way to introduce this than Cerulean used, so I'll just echo him:
"First, make like the Lady Montague: never complain, never explain. You’re in this for the hearts and minds, which are impossible to score if you’re always on the defensive. Especially if you’re representing a scrappy little medium that never gets no respect from the major players. Bitching about that lack of respect won’t win you any points; losers bitch, and nobody cares what a loser thinks."
Furries take note.
