Two Articles (December 2008)

I have two reviews in the current issue of The Comics Journal.

The first is a long review of This Book Contains Graphic Language: Comics as Literature by Rocco Versaci. In it, I question how much justification comics criticism really needs.

The second is a short review of The Twilight Zone: ‘The After Hours’ and ‘Walking Distance’. In the magazine the piece is mis-attributed to Kent Worcester (a mistake owing, I think, to our sharing the same initials).

Neither is online. If you want to read them, you’ll have to find the paper version.

My comment on the election (not an endorsement)

The Guide asked several of its contributors to comment on the forthcoming presidential election. Four of us did, and you can find our remarks online here:

My piece is tagged “Expect Election Hangover,” and in it I argue that we shouldn’t pin our hopes on political parties or their candidates. (I’d also encourage people to read Yasmin Nair’s contribution, “Class in Drag,” which appears immediately following my little essay.)

In keeping with the notion that it’s what happens after the election that matters — Remember, remember: November 5 is Guy Fawkes Day, in memory of the only man to enter parliament with honest intentions.
