For whatever reason, my job at a food trade magazine put me on the mailing list for a press release for two new comic series, so I got this great press release on two new series, one about Juliet and one about Dorian Gray.
I like comics a lot, but I don’t think comics are literature in any way. Comics rarely deal with words in the way that novels or essays do; I’ve yet to read any comics that I like that rely on manipulating language in the way that good literature does. Film isn’t literature, so neither is comic art.
But if we’re going to change the word “monsters” into a verb in this fashion, then I’m all fucking for it. And I’m cool with “woken” too.
