To say that comics, as we know the medium today, is an American artform, is not to deny the form’s antecedents in Europe, or the powerful examples of the form around the globe.

  1. I am working on a book-blog which can be seen at [one word] theoryofirony.com, then clicking on either the “sample chapter” or “blog” buttons. My Rube Goldberg contraption of a brain processes the world with an odd, well-caffeinated kind of logic. Why is there an inverse proportion between the size of the print and the importance of the message? History. Art. Science. Religion. I call this eccentric thinking the Theory of Irony and if your busy schedule permits, why not give a read, leave a comment or create a link?

    P.S. The last chapter has some things to say about Robert Johnson, whom I believe is one of the most underrated characters in the history of Western Civilization. If you do respond, I would be happy to cut, paste and post.
