Once I was paid to review websites. In a magazine. And look what was cutting edge in 1997 in the pages of CMJ Monthly.
DAMN! Warren Ellis is “the only writer with a web page”? How things change!
“Why American comics can ape Japanese manga without understanding what makes them work as stories.”
Some things never change!
“The SF series Transmetropolitan looks very cool.”
Had I but known…
As funny as this is, the next review — which I have no memory whatsoever of writing — is even better.
