Comic asides

I don't like comics - they're slow to read, and I subvocalise the text, which really frustrates me. The quality of the page illustration never lives up to that on the cover (Sandman, I'm pointing at you).

But I want to love comics. They're right up my alley - pictures, scifi plots, coolness. It's a shame I don't get on with them.

But web comics... interest me. Reading text on screen is different from a book - it's browsier, and nothing like the absorptive, hypnotic, miss-you-tube-stop experience of a novel.

But Scott Mc Cloud Rocks. I suggest you read the article at the link.
