chris ware edited this. He points out that art used to be sequential, illustrative, and "sentimental". (At least christian art throughout the ages.) Then only recently art became conceptual. But comics brings it back to something more primal and real and intimate. I love good comics. david heatley, anders nilson, and c.f. stand out in this collection, but most of the other stuff, you couldn't read to your kids as bedtime stories. In fact you probably shouldn't read them at all. Its all aesthetically gorgeous, but the aesthetics don't trump my moral queasiness. Art has nothing at all to do with morality.
