They’re Talking About Comic Books

* Tim O'Neil reads 52 and comes away from that experience suggesting the popular DC Comics "event" series hits new levels in terms of the odd kinds of fan service that modern comics trade in, frequently at the expense of story. Read the comments section for another strange element of comics culture, a reader that's seemingly happy to compartmentalize a reading experience and suggests O'Neil's inability to do the same is a weakness.

* Sean T. Collins responds in broken beer-bottle fashion to recent postings by Chris Butcher and Marc Singer. The Singer commentary thread is pretty interesting.
