Book Report

This was supposed to be a synopsis of the last three books I read, one panel each. It just kinda grew a little.
I'll probably end up doing the other two as well - I liked them both better than this one.

Indy Magazine did some articles about City of Glass back in 04. Maybe you'll find interest in them? I've, sadly, not read either the book or the reviews/interviews (well I read a bit of Martha Kuhlman's, actually. Good stuff)

I actually read a few of those a little while back (including Martha Kuhlman's article). It's part of what whetted my appetite for the comic. I can't really put my finger on what fell flat for me. I could see what they were getting at but some of the techniques just seemed too forced, or something. Or the potential narrative power of some of the tricks (like the author shift) may have lost something in translation. I imagine I'll read the original eventually to find out.

And I'm not saying it's not good or that I took absolutely nothing away from it. I just expected more, I guess.
