The post I just wrote is long, heavy, and while I think it is meaningful, I need something light to balance it out. So, here it is: Laughing Squid has a great write-up of one of my favorite authors. The author is Scott McCloud, and they do a decent job of summarizing what makes his work tick while being concise and thoughtful. Enjoy!
