Rhetoric

Most of the ‘how I’ll fix comics’ rhetoric is empty posturing designed to boost the profiles of regular columnists with nothing much to say or write about other than their own big heads, myself included. If you want to improve comics do something fucking new and original and learn how to promote it to the wide world outside comics fandom.

Let’s see what’s in your head instead of what’s in your library. Let’s see comics take the cultural lead and do work NO-ONE else in any other medium is capable of. Talk is cheap, which is why we all do so much of it. We’ll all be judged by our actual output in the end. Leave the world to people who have some good ideas about where to take it.
