Kurtz admits "Maybe I Do Need to See My Mommy."

One of WvW's anonymous sources has revealed that "Scott Kurtz posted on his main site a rant against the way in which the history of webcomics is being recorded. He also posted a response to some e-mail he'd recieved, which really does include that quote."

In the course of interviewing BLC, Leslie learned that there was a whole world of webcomics out there and decided to investigate further.
