Know your shit

“Know your stuff” should be a rule of thumb before engaging in any kind of criticism. It’s tough when you’re doing a catch-all “best music” type thing because some people want to display how catholic their taste is (same thing in comics, where the new Chris Ware always ends up on the same list as like, Sex Criminals or whatever). But yeah: if you’re a big important mainstream publication and you’re choosing to cover comics, you need to hire a writer who 1) knows their shit and 2) gives a fuck.
