Anonymous asked:

If you could encourage professional reviewers to change how they discuss comic art in their reviews, what would you suggest they change? What aspects of your art, for example, would you like to have acknowledged when people discuss your work?

A

For one, they could stop giving complete summaries of the comic. A summary isn’t a review.

Though I can appreciate that a lot of reviewers don’t have the artistic vocabulary to really review art, they always have lots to say about the story. An analysis of the storytelling would be interesting. Analyzing the composition and pacing is something I love to do with the comics I buy. There’s plenty to appreciate with the art of a comic and I feel most reviewers are barely scratching the surface.
