Swiercynski almost gets by on style: single-page illustrations, text messages, layout hijinks. Simple sentences; fast-pace; everything fast, fast, fast. He almost makes up for story with verve. The giddiness is likable. If it’s not quite a book, you know, it’s at least not the worst popcorn movie. Sometimes, being able to turn pages rapidly is enough for me. Sometimes, I’m on airplane.

  1. Re: POC superheroes…
    One of the things to consider is the issues of the aging fanbase. If the comic buyers (and most store owners) base their purchases (and expectations of purchases) on franchises and stories they grew up with, it seriously hampers any new blood getting into the mix. For example, I may not be able to find any issues of The 99 at my LCS, but I can sure as heck find all the Justice League books on the shelves.

    I think digital comics will be able to make significant in-roads into the POC superhero market.
