A Mission for Comics Bloggers

Go read some comics. Any comics. Go read some. Don’t talk about comics. Don’t bitch about them. Don’t talk about people talking about them. Don’t analyze them. Don’t pontificate on them. Don’t armchair CEO the entire industry. Don’t read articles about comics. Don’t read interviews with comics creators. Don’t talk about articles about comics and interviews with comics creators. Don’t complain about comics fans. Don’t bitch about people who like what you don’t, don’t like what you do, or who like what you like but not in the same way. Don’t propose ways to “save” comics, or complain about people who are “killing” comics. Just go read some damn comics. If you read something you like, say, “Hey, I thought this was a pretty good read.” That’s it. That’s all. Just read and enjoy some comics.

    Are you trying to save comics by getting us to read them?
    It’s a trick isn’t it? Well, I won’t fall for it my friend!!!
    MWUAHAHAHAA!!! Oh wait, I did. I just read some Metal Hurlant issues last night.
    They were an interesting read and a nice change from the stuff I normally read.
    I particularly enjoyed a continuing story of two zombies (that act human) trying
    to survive in a world where zombies are hunted. Good stuff. I read the newest
    Negative Burn TPB too. Good stuff there including a great story from Busiek and Lieber.
    Western Tales of Terror is fun too.

    Comics? Comics!? What about the stinks-of-death flower? I demand an update!

    Oops. Just saw you posted an update. Sorry about that-go back to your comics.

    Oh, sure — and then once we’ve all sworn off blogging and pontificating about them and start sitting in silence with our back issues, you’ll suddenly swoop in and instantly become THE ONLY COMICS BLOGGER IN THE WORLD.

    Well, it won’t work, my friend.

    Easier said than done. Finding reading material of any kind in Grainville is increasingly difficult.
