Great insights, even when the writing style seems a tad too reminiscent of a comics obsessive's blog posts. Bonus points for the copious references to obscure 1980s titles.

It is not an exceptional review about theory and history - but it does provide some insight into comics. Its cursory introductions into past and current creators [Bechdel, Eisner, Hernandez bros, Ware etc.] is interesting. and worthwhile. Nice selection of styles.
