What's Worse Than Erasing Art? Inventing Quotes! Part II
Somehow that just doesn't ring true. According to Mark Evanier, "The Bob Oksner one is from a published interview but one that contained so many obvious transcription errors that I wouldn't trust it. Some of the others are third-hand quotes...like the Gil Kane one about Colletta being his "second favorite inker" is something Erik Larsen quotes Gil as saying. I think the Marie Severin one is something that someone claims they heard her say...so it's not to be trusted."
Where does it leave us? I expect that the blogger in question will now go and lay low for a while and will pop back up with more Colletta hatred and fabrications eventually. All I can say is that anyone mining the site for quotes beware - nothing on that site can be trusted as being truth. And I'd not be rushing out the door to buy any book that the blogger in question decides to 'publish'. Thankfully the site is now down for the duration, but it's a shame that he hasn't come out of the closet, so to speak, but there's still time.
