Bah. I would be posting more, but for things. And stuff. I WOULD be saying something about the new Gottfredson book, but I fucking DON'T HAVE IT yet. And when I asked the Fantagraphics people what the deal was, they told me it had been BACK-ORDERED--even though I preordered the thing in April. I know this is the kind of thing for which the phrase "first-world problems" was invented, but still...shit the what, people?

Bonus! Gyro One-Pagers!
Sunday, July 14, 2013
If there's one main takeaway from these stories, it's that Lockman's conception of what exactly Gyro should be doing as an "inventor" is distinctly different from Barks'. For better or worse? Well, I suppose that's a matter of opinion, but I will speak more of it shortly.

"Mighty but Miserable"
I tell you, it's a grim day, because it's the day that I try to write something about "Mighty but Miserable." Easier said than done. And let's face it: you're busy folks. You don't have time to dick around. You've got places to go and people to be. You don't WANT to hear me reiterate bullshit I've already said. Sure, I could say "hey, Lockman has some decent dialogue in this story!" but you have HEARD IT ALL BEFORE. This is not, I think, a story that warrants hugely in-depth discussion--or at least, given all I've previously written, such discussion would be redundant. So let's have a stripped-down entry where we strive to make only points we haven't made before.
