Wow, I've just written such a colossally trouble-making post. Really, I've outdone myself. I'm not even quite sure where this post came from, so early on a rainy and windy Friday morning. It's just a horror, partially inspired by Dirk Deppey's post on DC Comics yesterday.
The post I wrote is too soon. I realize this, as I let it sit as a bloated, text-heavy draft on the Blogger server.
Ah Comics! Your hagiographies, your sensitivities, your internal mythologies, histories, anxieties. It all goes far deeper than the actual narratives on the pages, the lives of your heroes and the heroes of your own lives running parallel to each other. Our little slice of the world, looming so large on the windshield.
