I love that book. I wish he could have sustained it better. It loses its
inspired quality (which is SO striking) about 2/3 of the way in. It almost feels like something major changed in the author's life.

I used to share a house with Jerry Boyajian, the film and comics guru. Despite my general lack of interest in comic books, he put me on to some
good stuff like Watchmen and Why I Hate Saturn. Now *I* have trouble
trying to explain comic books/graphic novels as serious art to people.
