What is this, the Bizarro Board?
Adrian Sanders’ TCJ Messageboard post has spawned some interesting tangents, from which we can discern that:
1. Fantagraphics is beyond criticism (what are you doing holding the company to higher ethical standards than DC/Marvel David? Just because they do it themselves, when it suits them? Not a good enough reason, it seems… Frankly, as far as I’m concerned, a true “art for art’s sake commitment” means you make your work available for free… anything less is just “branding” for (bourgeois) aesthetes… “We have the technology”–as they used to say on TV…)
2. Superhero comics (all of ’em!) are beneath contempt–and James Kochalka is just as representative of what’s wrong with the “comics scene” as the drooling fanboy in a basement near you.
Good afternoon friends!
