Love & Rockets #34

My latest Shelf Life is up at Sequart.

Maybe it's just me, but I have this nagging feeling that this isn't my best column. I'm happy with the analysis on Gilbert's stuff, but feel like something's missing on the "Wig Wam Bam" chapter. At any rate, in the interest of not being too much of a perfectionist, and keeping moving forward, I just went ahead and posted it, and am already working on #35, which I think will be much better.

hi marc,
i really love your stuff on sequart, and just wanted to say your analysis is really fun to read.
as for Wig Wam Bam - I think it's a hard story arc to do because it is (for me) the deepest part of the Locas history and tackles one of its core themes (maggie and hopey's relationship) - there isn't really another time in Locas that contends with it so directly.
anyways, keep up the great work, it's very much apprecaited

Thanks a lot, Adrian! I think once I finish Wig Wam Bam, I'll be able to look back and provide a better perspective on the story. I also have gathered several reviews and research on it that I've put off reading to avoid spoilers; so once I finish I'll be able to present other writer's perspectives as well. Anyway, your comments are really encouraging, so thanks again!
