Go, Read: Meaning-Lite Euro-Comics

Matthias Wivel has a piece up well worth your time where he takes a snapshot of modern European comics and finds a lot of works that are beautifully crafted, but don't have a lot to say. This is an interesting issue to me because I do think there are comics that are like that because of market pressures or failure of ambition on the behalf of a creator or creators, but I also think there are artists who create surpassing works composed of building blocks restricted to the surface elements of comics.
