Gorgeous, if maybe not to my taste. So much of the work by modern male graphic novelists is so unrelentingly dour. What is it that readers enjoy about this? I'm genuinely curious, because I feel like I'm missing out on a lot. Whether it's James Sturn or Chris Ware or Daniel Clowes or Charles Burns--artists who are celebrated for a very bleak & pessimistic view of humanity--who use their talents to show how how depressing and pointless life is. I know that! I have a window and internet access! But I'm old fashioned--when it comes to art I like a little hope with my hopelessness.
