The "Original Johnson" Comic book review part three
Glenn Hauman, the "assistant editor" of "The Original Johnson" Comic book left this comment attached to part one of my review, which has now become an investigation: "There's no ghost writer. Trevor has been working on this project for years, writing and pencilling. We're just happy to, shall we say, expose The Original Johnson. That said, I didn't notice the coloring mistake rendering the stick transparent and suggestive in your second example. I'll make sure it gets fixed. Your third example-- you skip over that in the very next panel, a black man punches the potential rapist in the mouth and throws him off the train. I'm going to be very interested in how you react to Trevor's depiction of some of Johnson's later acts, including marrying white women at a time when that was illegal, and Johnson's prosecution under the White Slavery act of 1910. Jack Johnson's life was a constant fight against the attitudes of the day, and he won most of them by knockout. Obscuring what happened along the way does him no justice." Now, read what I wrote in my first post about this book. Did he deny most of what I said? Does his comment about "exposing the 'original Johnson" go with what I said about the mockery of Jack Johnson being compared to a penis? Instead of being the "Original Man" (as "black" people are sometimes referred to being.) Its the "Original Penis". It is one big inside joke. In my opinion. Anyway, I ordered Jack Johnson's biography and I am going to go through it with a "fine tooth" comb. I am not denying that some of what is said in this comic book is the truth, but there are too many details in this comic book, that to me would be impossible to know about 89 years after his death. I could be incorrect, but it doesn't appear that there are a lot of sources of accurate information about him. Anyway something is up if my blog got the attention of a Racist Suspect writer associated with this comic book. Can you imagine having your story being "edited" by a Racist Suspect? Glenn Hauman apparently is a sci-fi writer, and has written many books for the "Star Trek" series. I suspect this makes him qualified to be THE ghost writer for this comic book. To back up my point, I am listing sources that demonstrate Glenn Hauman writing ability: http://www.glennhauman.com http://www.comicmix.com/contributor/glenn-hauman/ http://us.imdb.com/name/nm1079280/ http://www.simonsays.com/content/destination.cfm?tab=1&pid=361735 http://www.psfs.org/events/guestinfo.php?gid=21 The other interesting thing is that I can't find one thing that has been written by Trevor Von Eeden (the VOR who they say is writing this comic book). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevor_Von_Eeden http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/61961.Trevor_Von_Eeden (Here is some evidence that shows that I maybe incorrect about his writing ability, but notice that all of these books have been co-authored by him, which I suspect could mean that he did the art work.) http://lambiek.net/artists/v/von-eeden_trevor.htm http://www.comicbookbin.com/thriller001.html The net has plenty of information on Mr.Von Eeden, but its all about his artwork. There are more links about him than the Racist Suspect named Glenn Hauman. So far none of the sites list a single work written by Trevor Von Eeden by himself. There are at least a hundred links so I could be incorrect. Now if you are running a comic book business, would you have the artist who has not written anything, start writing the content for your comic book? If you had someone who works for you who has written books and won awards for the books that they've written, wouldn't you want them to write your comic books? Weigh the scales. Artist with no writing skills or Award winning writer? Would a Racist Liberal(one who chooses to make Racism/White Supremacy more comfortable for its victims) know that their content may be called "Racist" if it were known to be written by a "white" person? Would that same Racist Liberal have a "black" person appear to be the writer? Could the content be called Racist against "black" people if ti was written by a "black" person? I shall return! Stay strong in the fight to eliminate Racism (White Supremacy).
