On Tim O'Neil On the New Yorker On Comics

If you happen to read the Peter Schjedahl piece on comics in this week's New Yorker, do yourself a favor and read this thoughtful rejoinder from Tim O'Neil. Schjedahl makes some good points, and champions the books he mentions for solid reasons, but his viewpoint--and conclusions about the suppposed limited potential of the form--seem born of serious ignorance of comics beyond the ones he's seen from major publishers. At any rate, O'Neil explains it better, plus he got there first, so go read him.

Update: link to Tim's essay fixed
