Comics in serial form: Necessary and vital

by John Jackson Miller

Tilting at WindmillsIt's been a long time since the days when I was editing Brian Hibbs' Tilting at Windmills column every month for Comics Retailer magazine, but I wanted to direct readers to this month's internet installment, which includes an analysis of the reasons why the comic book periodical is and remains a necessary component to the North American comics publishing industry.

Some of these are points that have been raised here and elsewhere for a long time, having to do with how comics are produced, and the limitations of a graphic-novel only strategy; Brian compiles them in a compelling analysis that also takes in the manga comparison. Were this 1999, this'd get a cover blurb!
