Comics are the most important creative medium. The idea of graphic visual storytelling is as old as humans, if you consider cave paintings and hieroglyphics a form of comics. Telling stories with recognizable images can cross all language barriers and instantly suck readers in. As the film world and the recognized high art gallery scene die under their own weight, comics will be fiddling and watching them pass. That said, half the comics I got since the last review column really sucked.
