With these words, Clifford Meth commented on the settlement reached with Richard Emms over the inking on Mr. T #3. Clifford kept an eye on the incident, in spite of being heavily pre-occupied with his new baby boy and a recovering Mom - and offered to intermediate if necessary. It wouldn't be the first time Clifford would do so for a just cause in the comics community - but fortunately, this was one case he could take a well deserved rest from.
Blair Marnell wrote a detailed summation of the Newsarama thread in his column, All the Rage at Silver Bullet Comics and Books, concluding that "cooler heads" had prevailed to reach a settlement.
Rich Johnston also covered the incident in his column, Lying in the Gutters at Comic Book Resources:
To be honest, I think that's the happiest one of these forum back-and-forths has ever concluded.Rich's comment reminded me of a Biblical narrative in the book of Exodus telling of the meeting between Moses and his father-in-law, Jethro, upon the latter seeing the Israelites freed from Egypt. Jewish commentaries say that what moved Jethro to join the Jewish people afterwards was that he had seen, for the first time in his life, how a God had helped the oppressed and disenfranchised. Until then, Jethro was known as a master idol worshipper, bowing to every false god he'd come across.
For those who wonder what it is about Rich Johnston that evokes such thoughts, perhaps this will help.
