You have all betrayed me.

Just last night, I determined this. Last night, I walked out of a bookstore and stood on the sidewalk for a few minutes, reading, and realized that all of you filthy little monkeys must hate me.

Must despise me.

Must nightly wallow in beds of your own feces and vomit, plotting unimaginably heinous vengeance upon me for reasons that I don't want to comprehend.

Why do I know this?
I picked up a couple used trade papers of Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan.


I'd never read Transmetropolitan.
I'd never even really looked at the artwork.
I'd never even gotten a firm picture of who these people were.
I knew NOTHING.
I simply knew that Warren Ellis wrote it, and I like his blog so I decided perhaps I should read his fiction.

Perhaps I should read his fiction.

HOW COULD YOU PEOPLE ABANDON ME LIKE THIS? WHY DID YOU NOT REFUSE TO SPEAK TO ME UNTIL I HAD READ SOME OF THIS?

WHY DO YOU HATE ME?

Fuckers.

I hate this place.

gee, I think the book made something of an impression.
