Reynolds on All the New FBI Comics


If you scroll down a bit in the above link, you'll read FBI publicity guru Eric Reynolds preview Jordan Crane's new comic and speak directly to Fantagraphics' mostly-under-the-radar recommitment to the comic book format, what with books from folks like Michael Kupperman, Mark Martin, and Jordan Crane joining stalwarts like Dame Darcy and Los Bros Hernandez. There was a time in the early 1990s when comic shops could make mini-sections out of similarly-sized comics from Peter Bagge, Dan Clowes, Chester Brown, Joe Sacco, Dylan Horrocks, Mary Fleener and Julie Doucet among many others, which some of us think helped create a market identity among hardcore fans and allowed for a lot more sampling from title to title than might take place with a cluster of $19.95 trades.
