about how “2008 was one dreary year for comics”?
I won’t bother repeating my ‘best of 2008’ list … except to say it was two items long, and both were reprints.
What the hell has Steven Grant been reading?
Not that there weren’t good books, and entertaining ones. People keep telling me there’s a higher general level of skill and creativity in the field than ever before. That may even be true. Doesn’t change anything. It also depends considerably on what one considers “creativity.” A jungle girl comic with the most exquisitely crafted prose and finest art in existence is still just a jungle girl comic. A finely honed symbolist Batman story is still just a Batman story.
Oh. That might have something to do with it.
This is just Paul O’Brien all over again.
