Scott McCloud was mostly right about micropayments, he was right about the infinite canvas, so I wonder what else in Reinventing Comics that we all made fun of is or will turn out to be ahead of its time?

β€œHow long has it been since you last confessed?”

grumbling about star trek fans 

Star Trek in the 60s: Drama that takes itself seriously but is light of heart, has jokes.

Star Trek Discovery: Clearly in the same spirit, but real emphasis on drama.

@hierarchon making a military history discord with a General Chat channel and banning anyone who tries to talk about people of any other rank
