I'm surprised there are this many of them.
No, the one I was thinking of was actually a Yahoo Group - there's a number of them on New Zealand railways, all remarkably active. I also go to Railpage Australia, and read but am not registered at Vicsig since they bizarrely won't accept webmail addresses like Hotmail or Gmail and I can't be arsed remembering what my ISP-provided one is.

You know I have the power to turn a whole generation into romantics with my comics.

Ron Paul is a few gold bars short of a treasury.

I loved when somebody posted on FYM that has campaign was "REVOlution".

Then watch as my historical tomes turn everyone cynical and pessimistic.

Well, cynical and pessimistic about getting to the end of my books at least ...

Rules of comic book making:

#1. Make them fun/politically insightful for all.


#2. Women should always be incredibly attractive. Most comic book writers have never seen a woman in their life, but they should use their imagination to compensate.


#3. Put the hero in danger at least twice.


#4. No romance-themed episodes. It confuses the readers.

etc...

Of course not on #4. Readers would rebel.

I like little touches of romanticism. There might be great feats of romantic action by a character like someone might do something out of love. I'll put in little gestures that nerds can use to attract girls.

You know usually with so much discussion the thread would move faster but everyone is so thought out in their posts. I love this.

This is why I said "romance-themed". Many great comics involve romance in a scene or two.

My comics never have though...probably because the characters are all about 13. A sexual innuendo pops up here and there though.

In my own writing (which is prose), I have largely avoided romance. Mainly because I can't fucking write the stuff. My latest fiction project has had some, but mostly in the context of everything going to shit. That, I can write.

Exactly! I don't think a calmer discussion of abortion has ever taken place. Seriously.
