There's a fascinating article from the Bangkok Post posted here that has multiple entry points for comics readers. A first is a discussion of a national book fair that has successfully made the transition from literary discussion-driven industry festival to a more consumer- and reader-oriented experience. A second is the folding in of comics concerns into such an event. A third is a description of Thai comics as a kind of common man's literature, which isn't something you see a whole lot of anymore. A fourth is the poetic description in the title, which comes from the writer placing value on comics reading experiences. I have my doubts about efforts to improve the literary quality of an experience that resonates because of, in part, the less lofty aspects, but I enjoyed the article.
