“Comics? Not comics? It only matters in so far as it means someone will (or won’t) pick up the book and take it home.”
—Geoff Grogan, co-editor of the newsprint anthology pood and creator of the multimedia comics (hey, I’ll say it if he won’t) Look Out!! Monsters and Fandancer, on the only definition of “comics” worth a damn. Whether it’s Prince Valiant or Kramers Ergot 4, I’ve gotten a lot less concerned with using definitions to define a given work right out of the comics discussion. The best way I know how to put it is this: Comics is any art you can read.
