While I can't really shed a tear for someone who says, "I'm so damn good, you should come and get *me*," I also feel like TenNapel sounds like a lot of artists who make their money off of people looking to make a lot of money, for better or worse. Of course the suits're gonna screw you out of your creations, that's why young & naive creative types need legal council (or at least more than a handshake). And if he really poops roses & gold the way he makes it sound, wouldn't there be more Earthworm Jims out there to his credit?
That being said, if you're into comics, good art and/or good storytelling, you should really check out "Creature Tech." (Someone could make a great game out of that...) It's got shotguns, life, death, love, aliens, symbiosis, demons, religion and a lot of evil, evil cats. Good stuff and amazing art.
