Kim deleted some duplicated books: Jaime Hernandez's Locas series books; Gilbert Hernandez's Palomar series books; and Maus.


message 2: by Kim (new)

Kim deleted:
1. Co-Mix since it is not a comics.
2. Congress of Animals & Fran since there's already Weathercraft

Dave Schaafsma The list here is almost incomprehensible. Anything anyone says is "art" is okay to add. Chast? Pond? Maus? Hernandez? Bechdel? Tyler? Lutes? What does "art comics" even mean in this context?!

My name for some of it might be "conceptual comics" including Ware, McGuire, Yokoyama, Fawkes, Carre, maybe Seth and Chet Brown and Anders Nilsen, where the design principle or aesthetic takes a central place in the creation. I tend to want to separate out alt-comics types like Crumb, Woodring and Alden. But where do you put Clowes, Burns, Dash Shaw? Do they bridge alternative and conceptual categories? Are my categories just as problematic as "art comics" as a category?

I like people like Matt Kindt for his art and storytelling style. I tend to think of Kindt as sort of a postmodern storyteller I'd put in a "conceptual" category. Who of the the superhero folks are "art" types?

Jan Philipzig I agree with everything you write, David. And yet I enjoy looking at the list simply because I find it interesting to see what people do and do not CONSIDER "art" in the context of comics - tells you something about those old hierarchies of taste (superheroes = not "art")...
Plus I like it when a list makes me want check out new or different stuff, and this list is great for that.

Dave Schaafsma I agree with everything YOU say here, Jan!
