Thanks, Chris.

Our young Mr. Ryall has in recent years found himself cast as the unofficial Byrne Wrangler, so he’s about as close to an eye witness as you’re likely to get, here.

Mr. Ryall, I think it's an easy answer; it deals with power and attention. First someone's post gets a little attention... people start reading and commenting. The poster gets a sense of a following, so posts more. More people read and pay attention, and at that point, it's a vicious circle. Truth and integrity fall by the wayside as self-indulgence swells like a balloon.

"It makes me crazy when..." Oh, sure, blame it on THAT. ;)

It is an entire shame that we won't see it published - but per Mr. Byrne, I suspect it's no loss to us. The buying public, however... well, that's a damned shame, that's all.

That is why I ignore those accounts on social
media. I don't need second hand
misinformation. When I have come straight to
the source for the past 15 plus years.

There's something wrong with that guy "upstairs" if you know what I mean.  He reminds me of a celebrity stalker.

Fair point, Eric. My years spent as 'unofficial Byrne Wrangler' are probably more to blame...

I used to belong to one of the art boards just to catch art that I was not aware of, but I got into a discussion that quickly turned to argument when someone wrote they could tell JB's emotional state based on how good or bad the page looked. A prelude of things to come so I left them to their squabbles. Getting JB frozen concentrate is never as good as fresh squeezed.

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that ‘John Byrne says’ guy’s older
misinformation was better.

Welp, can't wait for the "fan-fic"* pages here anyhow. Hope my JBF dues are paid up!






^which of course will become canon in my own world.

The cool thing is we'll still get to see the story (what would we do without the internet?). Onward and upward...
