Comments on: Shut your wordhole: Laura on Cerebus #4 http://cereblog.org/2009/01/31/laura-on-cerebus-4-shut-your-wordhole/ Just another WordPress.com weblog Sat, 18 Jul 2009 10:27:06 +0000 http://wordpress.com/ hourly 1 By: Eric http://cereblog.org/2009/01/31/laura-on-cerebus-4-shut-your-wordhole/#comment-349 Eric Wed, 20 May 2009 19:46:19 +0000 http://cereblog.org/?p=129#comment-349 Interesting that you point out Sim's layouts and panel design, which, while they were to achieve highly idiosyncratic heights later on, even at this early stage were showing great intelligence, creativity and originality, the true marks of a great comic artist. Thanks for pointing this out - I tend to overlook the early comics. The first "phonebook" shows perhaps the largest degree of increased talent, maybe because it was still a bi-monthly comic in those days and represent a larger period of time than the later books.

And Jeremy, I never read more than an issue or two past my updates, mostly because I'd feel guilty for skipping ahead without writing the earlier critiques. And I'm a pretty busy girl, so it's hard to get toooo far ahead on those. New update very very soon!

I plan to read both ahead and along.

Things have been a little nuts leading up to NYCC for me, so I doubt there will be more than one next week. Feel free to prod us for more frequent posts, though! Guilt is a powerful motivator. Plus, we're finally getting to the more interesting stuff. Jaka's coming! We’re doing AT LEAST one per week, ideally more.

Even with his lettering and word balloons, as you mentioned Laura, he was experimenting and would eventually have these elements enhance the experience for his readers. Wow, quiet week here. So I'm curious as you mentioned your desire for more interesting enemies etc. Are you actually reading only one issue per week?
