I know I've been mostly silent on this blog, but today's kind of a big day for me!
First, I am thrilled and honored to be a part of the first day launch of the Comics Journal's new website. The first part of my five-part essay, "Birdland Reconsidered" (which itself is part of my larger ongoing Shelf Life project analyzing the works of Los Bros Hernandez) is now online. Please let me know what you think! This essay represents literally months of writing and research, and I would love to hear any and all feedback on it.
Also, coincidentally, today also sees the final post in my six-part look at Alan Moore's "Lost Treasures" at Trouble With Comics. The final piece discusses Moore's classic "The Bowing Machine," a truly inspired story that first appeared in Raw vol. 2 #3.
For the sake of convenience, here are the permanent links to all six posts:
