Well.

I heard back from Mr Seeley.

*long pause*

There isn’t much, if anything, to sum up. He said he was familiar with the fan base but did not elaborate. Anything in his story line that feels familiar or coincidental is just that, coincidence.

At this point, because the film is just shy of 30 years old, there are so many ideas, plot lines, and tropes that have been used over and over, it’s totally possible for someone not that enmeshed in the fandom to think things as ‘new’. I’m gonna let it go.

His intention with the comic is to make something “new, interesting, funny and scary while maintaining the feel of the classic movie.” Okay, more power to him. It’s basically what we do with fan fiction, only he’s been contracted to do it officially.

I know why David’s back. He answered that. There is no big reason, not even one that relates to the story being told. It was so simple, too simple really, for me to even think of. So that’s on me, being angry about that. I’m not gonna be fucking happy about it or anything, but I’m in for a penny in for a pound, so I’ll have to read the next four issues to see what happens.

In the end, Mr Seeley reminded me that regardless of how I feel, good or bad, about the comic book, no one can take the original film from me. This is the truth. I think sometimes I forget that no matter what Warner Bros does or the other people who get contracted to do something with the property that add to it or whatever, the original film will never be fucked with. It will remain unaltered and always a source of joy and happiness for me.

So, thank you for that, Mr Seeley.

In my life time I never imagined being able to instantly message a writer and ask “hey, can I ask you questions?”

But, here we are, 21st century, with a thing called Twitter, that makes people all the more easily accessible.

Nine @ replies to Tim Seeley later, he responded and the ball starting rolling.

What an age we live in.

With everything that happened with The Tribe, with the will-not-be-named-here insider reaching out to try and assure us, to help us understand and get through that horrible nightmare, and the price said insider paid to do a good deed, well… I would have completely understood if Mr Seeley didn’t answer or get back to me. The fragments of that one lay strewn about as wreckage on the Lost Cave forum. They’re there, if you choose to look for them.

Rabid fandom does do itself dis-service by being rabid. Honestly, what I write in here is my own opinion, albeit hotly emotional at times. Hey, I have a lot of thought, effort, and passion invested in this film. But I am more then willing to give him a chance to explain, listen to his ideas and thoughts, and possibly agree to disagree. I will be as polite as possible.

I’ve already admitted I am surprisingly not as angry at this series as I initially believed I would be. Face it, beyond the whole David sticky wicket, the story is a overall decent interpretation of the threads left undone by the film’s end.

Having now emailed Mr Seeley, I honestly tried very hard to keep it on track. It’s hard, being passionate and already burned by three horrible, disastrous entries into the canon, to not freak out. Fortunately, it is nearly impossible for me to be tactless, so I have that going for me.

Yes. I totally brought up David. That was the one thing I could not let go of. That’s on me.

Anyway, now we wait and see.
