Go, Read: Robert Boyd On Mike Dawson’s Career Development Essay


There's a fine, short post here from longtime alt-comics industry veteran Robert Boyd, now a writer more generally about the arts, particularly in Houston. Boyd does this thing about halfway through where he names a bunch of roughly same-age peers and points out that every single one of them has either quit comics or significantly reduced the amount of time they devote to comics.

It's really tough in a way to see a list of talented people like that, where it seems totally natural they'd drift away from making this kind of art, particularly in that comics isn't a field that requires the permission of others in order to participate -- the artists have decided to move along. This could just be the natural order or things asserting itself, but it might be nice if we had greater discussion about the potentially limited time we have talented comics-makers.
