(...yes, it's a horrible Matrix pun...)

At any rate, is the user with the username Scott McCloud really THE Scott McCloud?! That guy's my friggin' hero! He's a genius. On that note, if it really is him, what the hell is he doing here? I assumed that he would have important, incredibly smart things to be doing, literally all of the time.

you know, you get used to it, HIM being here. but actually, even though every one acts very casual about it, most people are very excited if HE ever replies to their messages or even cites them in his blog. and i confess, i belong to most people.

It's really great that he visits too. So many "official sites" for bands, artist, whatever else, the people running the site never post. It's just so wrong. If only they'd take 5 minutes to make a reply every day, thier fans would love it.

...including the startling pair: "Scott McCloud is the devil/Scott McCloud is the messiah" appearing right next to each other even though they're from completely unrelated pages.

A few refer to the bassist from the band Boys Vs Girls, but most are me.

It's...

...kinda scary.

I'm not so worried about WHAT Scott McCloud is...the question I find myself asking is "WHY is Scott McCloud?"

Maybe one day when I am famous, I will get people who will wonder what I am. Until then I am just that sucky artist that posts his stuff on the internet ... and every once in a while, people actualy read it.

Until then ...

Scott McCloud is my hero.
Scott McCloud is under negotiations to come to the Ann Arbor Book Festival (I hope we can meet our fundrasing goal. Cross your fingers.)
Scott McCloud is just a guy who was really smart and charming when I got a chance to talk to him. (But I still think that he should tape his presentation and sell it on his site (my favorite musical band has concert tapes and I still pay the full price to see them in person when I can)).
Scott McCloud kicks ass!

Because it was about time. Because we needed him. He wasn't the first comics guru, but he's the guru of our generation (assuming that most of you are roughly my age). It's not an overstatement to say that Understanding Comics changed the path my life would take. I know I'm not the only one.

Scott is... partially responsible for the person I am today, and for the person I hope to become.

Who is this man? I went to google and did a search on my name... Jayne McCloud... and somehow I was directed to this forum. How are things going? Looks like this thread is an interesting one.

*giggle*

I will go back to being a boring person trying to find out a little bit more about me, or other random McClouds.

A Google search on Scott's name would answer that question.
