Mike Richardson Believes The CR Bias Against Dark Horse Is Now Confirmed
From Mike Richardson:
I saw your reply to my e-mail and thought that while it was articulate and well reasoned, it may have missed my point. I was not expressing an opinion about the importance of Dark Horse as measured against those venerable old giants, Marvel and DC. Rather, I was observing that you mention virtually every comics company of any size with the exception of Dark Horse. The fact that you now admit to visiting us, and yet made no mention of the company, confirms my earlier opinion. My own bias, we all have them, considers us worthy of noting when running down the list of worthwhile publishers.
Love your column and read it regularly.

Mike, I really don't know what to say to this. I can't imagine how in applying this standard every single article anyone has ever written about anything isn't biased in one way or the other.
I guess I can only look forward to continuing to cover your company in my biased way according to the standards I've been using since I met you at a late '80s con but wrote my next newspaper article about Cerebus the Aardvark instead of Boris the Bear.
I appreciate your reading the site, and the time you took in expressing your dismay at our coverage.
please note: I don't 100 percent know if this is Mike Richardson, but my query hasn't been denied yet
