This thread over at Comixpedia is worth checking out, which has turned into quite a heated discussion. I’ve mainly been discussing my Art versus Language perspectives regarding Japanese and American styles, to varying responses. I’m actually fairly grateful for the discussion and opposition to my ideas, since I’ve been working on some writing that pertains exactly to this topic. Nothing like a good argument to clarify my positions better.
I also think that discussions like thish are a good testament to the success of Comixpedia’s site redesign. I think it allows for threaded discussions like this far better than the old one, and community stuff like this is always good.
And while I’m on the subject, I’ll just throw out that I have another piece coming soon for Comixpedia… this time a little different than what I usually do… stay tuned!
Aside: Today’s update of “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” is now online.
