A Look at Comics as Literature and Art
Weekly Fanboy Radio Column by David Hopkins
JUST SMILE AND NOD is a 400 word column that moves beyond the commercialism and industry aspects of the medium, and instead explores how comic books work as a narrative medium and as an artform. Think of it as Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics" or "Reinvented Comics" and Will Eisner's "Graphic Storytelling", but as dialogue and ongoing discussion.
Also, the end of each column will feature a 100 word "mini-comics spotlight". Not a review or preview, but simply a glance at some of the mini-comics that are floating around out there.
In an effort to get a head start on the column, I've already started work on them. Currently, I'm on my third week.
