Two Days of Questions: Mishmash

There is no unifying theme to this post of questions. Maybe one will develop as I ask? Who knows. Let’s begin.

One, shouldn’t the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard (among the rest of his work) already be in the public domain? He’s been dead for 70 plus years and copyright is the life of the author plus 70. So, what’s the deal?

Two, why is it that, despite their genuine interest, most comics information sites rarely adequately promote creator owned work? Yes, they do a lot, but I don’t think the level is adequate. What can be done to fix the problem? A site dedicated solely to creator owned?

Three, why are historical surveys (those large detailess books) so damn boring? I’m trying to read a full history of the ancient world. And I just can’t take it any more!

Four, why can’t criticism be taken in a more positive light. Shouldn’t everyone want to improve?


Crap, I was hoping I’d have more questions. But I can’t think of any more. Oh, well. I need to be getting to bed soon, anyway.
