El artista visual Michel Fiffe ofrece en diversas plataformas online una opinión variada acerca de la historia, la forma y el fondo de los comics, con un entusiasmo y nostalgia realmente contagioso. En su cuenta de Twitter compartió un análisis obsesivo del estilo al que más se inclinan los guionistas comiqueros de su predilección.

Obsessive list-making strikes again! This time I wanted to gauge how deep in it comic book writers are, re: loving superheroes / licensed properties. This isn’t a qualitative contest, it’s a personal barometer! (Avoided newer writers cuz I’m basing this off decades of work)…

Column A: Cares about every single step of a character’s history, and actively moves to integrate it all. Getting lost in the minutiae is part of the appeal, and want to share that experience. Most likely own an extensive back issue collection, filed & organized specifically.

Column B: Thinks comics are cool/interesting but aren’t held back by the weight of its history (or a collector’s habits). They can rock other genres without having to twist their arm. If they came to it late (hailing from another industry) they took to it naturally.

Column C: Sees the absurdity of taking these concepts literally, and usually responds with stories of violence, mockery, or both. (All to great results IMO.) They like spandex fine, but wouldn’t mind toiling in any other genre. Like… anything else for the love of god.
