Comics Write-Up: SHOOTING THE MOON
I’ve been thinking that, given this Tumblr probably mostly attracts comics people, it might be worthwhile to do a bit of blogging about that particularly industry I’ve found myself in. Also, the day-to-day drudge of my job can run down my appreciation of the medium itself, so taking a few moments every now and then to write up something I appreciate about comics would probably do me good. And so, Comics Write-Up.
For this first installment, I want to talk about X-MEN: LEGACY #24.
Marvelicious editor Jake Thomas wrote some… well… some really special things about X-Men Legacy. It’s incredible how often we writers struggle to adequately describe or explain our own work, so there’s little more gratifying than when someone else does it so succinctly. Actually, that’s not true: the one thing more gratifying is when someone succinctly articulates the reasons for them disliking the book, then describes theprocess of their conversion. Personal accounts like this mean more than all the official reviews in the world.
