My Thoughts On Comics And Such #1

I’m going to wax rhapsodic for you for a bit. I remain perpetually hopeful and fascinated with the comics medium. It bothers me when it is abused and misused to make a fast buck, prop up an ego or work out some issues. If it still somehow adds up to a hell of story, well, I’ll cheer it on. That’s not usually how it goes.

And then you’ve got all your stuff that comes out week after the week that just keeps meeting a quota. So, no, it’s not always great when Wednesday rolls around. But then you’ll find a gem. Or you’ll see something new being done with an old idea and you keep hoping, looking, for more. It’s there. You just have to look. It’s in more than just one place. And that’s part of what Comics Grinder is about. Truth in comics! That’s what I’m looking for. When it’s fakery in comics, and I feel it’s worth making a point, I’ll call that out. Anyway, that’s all. For some reason, I felt a need to say this. Carry on.
