Everyone and his sister has already linked to this profile of Paul Pope in the Wall Street Journal.

And I still agree with John Updike’s rule for critics: “Review the book, not the reputation.”

But man, I have to say this makes me wish I’d been a little harder on Heavy Liquid last month.

This does not reflect well on me, I know.

I just got around to picking up the new Comics Journal, and was surprised to find an extended, thoughtful, and kind (too kind, really) review of Comics Comics written by Rich Kreiner.

It’s never a good idea to respond to critics, I know, especially overwhelmingly positive ones, but I do have to say that it’s a little unfair to use a quote from Dan’s Moebius review as an example of my “more directed and workman-like” prose. Dan‘s the one who’s more directed and workman-like than Dan, not me!

Also, in general, Kreiner likes Dan and Frank too much. Otherwise, good article!
