How Not To Write Comics Criticism // Dylan Meconis

Stashed in: Comics, Haters!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"When I read a negative review, I want to know what’s wrong with the book, not what’s wrong with your relationship to the medium. Likewise, in a positive review, I’m not looking for a blow-by-blow account of your realization that comic books can have cultural value. I already know that they do; I’m hoping you’ll tell me why this particular comic book has cultural value.

All I want is for you to write a review that I can respect. You can do that by writing a review that respects me, as a reader and a creator."

Good rule of thumb!

Haters gonna hate. But at least be insightful when you're inciteful.
