Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

When did the comic-book universe become so banal?

Methinks Jonathan Jones' appreciation of the medium is too rarefied for his own good (there's more to a comic than the pictures on the page, and there's more to comics in general than the graphic novel, or the counter-culture underground). But he makes a very fair point about Chris Ware's work, which I have enjoyed in the past, being "basically a set of tics and mannerisms" -- exactly the same way I feel about Wes Anderson's films [c/o LinkMachineGo]. #link
