Go, Read: This Week’s R. Fiore Piece At

I enjoyed reading this piece by Robert Fiore at The Comics Journal this week. There's an interesting, short discussion in the comments as well.

I don't always agree with the arguments that Fiore makes, but that means encountering them artfully expressed has more value, not less. It's nice to be reminded of that. There seems to be a growing sentiment that engaging with critical writing comes down to whether or not it affirms the reader's taste and, perhaps secondarily, the intent of the author as expressed by the author. It's difficult to imagine a more depressing exercise.
