When I first started Snark Free Waters in April of last year, I said the following,
I have no problem with "snark," which basically is another term for negative comments towards a work of art.
I do not believe anyone is helped by pretending that something is not bad. However, at the same time, negative comments have a sort of strange effect where their gravity is concerned.
Negative comments take on extra gravity, so that if you have, say, a blog, and half of your entries are positive and half are negative, people will generally be sucked in by the higher gravity of the negative entries.
That is why I began Snark Free Waters, and I continue to dig it. However, I think it wouldn't be too bad if I added a touch of Snark Free to this here blog, as well.
Therefore, each Monday I'll have the "Snark Free Corner." At the Snark Free Corner, it will just be for discussing the things I love about comic books. Whether it be great books, great creators or great moments, here is where you will find them discussed. In addition, part of the charm of comic books is also the often goofy aspects of the genre. You can think something is corny, and still enjoy it (if not, then no one would enjoy Owly).
In addition, if you want to share your thoughts about something you love about comics (or some goofy comic thing that makes you smile), feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org), as I will gladly post your thoughts about why you love comics in future entries!
