He got writer's block and felt like he was just rehashing things that had already been said
Happens to the best of us, I s'pose
EVERYTHING'S already been said
as a comics fan, he should know that!
i've been thinking lately
Whatcha been thinking
i wonder if there was a period, way back in the way way back, before people even bothered to write stuff on the sides of vases...
where the old stories started to solidify after generations of being kind of fluid
that's a long ass time ago
in the same way that superhero comics are just retelling the same ten stories about a character
these days i mean
like two old guys picking olives, yelling at each other, "Athena's a virgin! that story with Hercules isn't in continuity anymore!"
Haha! That should be the opening to a story
"forget that story where Zeus turned to pure lightning and had to wear magic armor to fight the titans! that story's stupid! kill him before he writes that down!"
"Take the lyre away from that guy before he fucks up another story!"
see what i mean?
i fear we're doomed to retell these same stories over and over
It's true, and you could probably break down every story into a handful of archetypes, but thankfully, we are a short-sighted race, and are easily tricked into watching the same romantic comedy that we watched four months ago with different actors.
That was just...just wonderful.
