I had a dream, dear friends, the other night. And it was a dream in which I met DC’s Dan Didio, and he was wearing an old-fashioned circus strongman’s outfit, and his moustache was newly waxed to match. As he led me through the house where I grew up, he told me in no uncertain terms about the secret cabal he belonged to, and how said cabal was looking to change the way the world viewed “old media” such as print. At one point, I asked him if he was telling me all of this because he wanted me to join the cabal, and he laughed as if I’d just said the funniest joke in the world.
My subconscious? Not so kind to me, apparently.
Anyway, for those of you who read Brian’s column on Friday, you may be interested in Tom Spurgeon’s response, the (surprisingly small) thread on The Engine, and a more direct market-centric commentary from Millarworld. Alternatively, you might want to check out the 22 page preview of upcoming Image graphic novel The Five Fists of Science on (Five Fists writer) Matt Fraction’s site, which he was nice enough to put up in a format crappy enough that even I could read it at my work computer, running Windows 95 (Yes, dear readers, I am who he’s talking about at the end of his post there). Just some things to keep you busy until the new comics come out tomorrow…
