I think what gives Morrison credibility here is that he actually has extensive indy work. Creator owned stuff. Its not reflective of why and how things sell and why people love and read about certain characters, because lots of people love to lose themselves in comics. Compare a lot of threads at CV with CBR, and you get this disparity between threads with posters talking within the narrative and posters talking about applied creativity to the medium. Neither is a good or bad approach per say, sort of depends. Most writers we hope are good at discerning both.

As usual, Morrison is right. And he seriously owned that guy. Poor bugger.

Couldn't have said it better myself.:) Not everything in a comic book, movie, or any creative medium needs an explanation. Makes it easier to enjoy my comics, personally.
